Tests Prove the Design Works How it Should

Before a car can be sent to the assembly line, it needs to undergo a series of tests to make sure it’s safe and runs efficiently, which is where research and development come in. Research and development is the process through which highly skilled experts prove the design is feasible by running a series of tests before sending the product out to customers. It’s important to know how a car would react if it were to crash, and these tests can assess a car’s strength and durability, such as how much pressure a part can take before it breaks.
