Is there any more low hanging fruit for me to pick A.K.A me invent something that is simply creative but applies scientific principles? Anyone who understands Structures of Analysis can help me in this activity ? And there are just so many more parts that do things the Japanese engineers don’t bother with. I am just asking for the rough differences between the companies most generally known such as Ferrari, Toyota, Honda, Chevrolet, Mercedes-Benz, etc. His favourite being the Datsun L \u0026 Nissan RB series engines. Japanese automakers, on the other hand, are popular for producing long-serving, affordable, and reliable units. They have superior quality and display a skilled craftsmanship that cannot be matched anywhere in the world. They couldn't just have a typical automatic transmission; it had to offer manual shifting capability. An FM transmitter delivers, to a 75-Ω antenna, a signal of v = 1000 sin(109t + 4 sin 104t). For example: the Lexus ES300 is pretty low on the Audi Allroad Scale Of Unreliability. And yeah, so I had to replace the ignition switch in another, and a differential in a third. Japanese engineering is simplistic but reliable and easy to maintain. And once the depreciation curve starts to flatten, the problems start to crop up, which means you can't safely own a German car for more than an afternoon without spending as much money as round trip airfare to Bermuda. Despite all the detail, German cars fail more often. (It didn't work.) Of course, my own anecdotal experiences aren't my only evidence here. When I hear Japanese Engineering I think of, SONY, TOSHIBA, TOYOTA, NISSAN, LEXUS, ROBOTS. Who’s the ultimate auto manufacturer? The main problem, as I see it, is that the Germans are just too obsessed with stuffing all sorts of newfangled gizmos into their cars. I believe it comes from a ww2 myth. and how much? %PDF-1.6 %���� There's also a small contingent of Americans who will tell you – no matter how hard you argue against it – that German cars will last "a million miles" without ever needing a major service. How hot does it get inside EMT or Thinwall conduit facing the sun mid day? Whereas a vehicle made entirely by chimpanzees provided with random car parts would be almost as bad as the Allroad. They had to have adjustable suspension that would raise and lower to allow Connecticut families to traverse grass parking lots at lacrosse games. They had to do more. I have two potential theories for why Germans feel this way. /ProcSet [/PDF /Text /ImageB /ImageC /ImageI] Calculate the carrier and intelligence ..... Engineering Terminology Version 1.4 September 2012 With Dictionaries of Terminology in Dutch, French, German, Italian, Polish, Portuguese (Brazil), Spanish and Swedish Standard Glossary for the Certified Professional for Requirements Engineering (CPRE) Studies and Exam . The result, as I'm sure you can imagine, is that the suspension failed, the transmissions went bad, and every single remaining V6 Allroad is currently leaking oil through its turbochargers, except the ones that are up on blocks because of bad suspension and a blown transmission. German engineering is refined and compact built, but very complicated. Get your answers by asking now. G/O Media assumes no liability for content posted by Kinja users to this platform. For interior, owners would likely choose German cars. /Tabs /S Still have questions? 1 0 obj One is that Germans actually know the cars are crap, but they refuse to slander Germany, so they can't ever mention this. Now, before we get into the reality of the situation, I'd just like to say that I understand where all of these perceptions of German car reliability come from. Though they have different target markets, it’s a never-ending debate, between their … I know what you’re thinking: Who the hell are you? And here's the thing: it's not only Germans who feel this way. This is a platform for User Generated Content. Also, he wrote this entire bio himself in the third person. Despite all the detail, German cars fail more often. He told me, with absolutely no hint of irony in his voice (because Germans don't have the capacity for irony; just cleanliness), that modern German cars will "last forever." For some reason, Germans still believe this stuff. Mainly, they come from the old days, when German cars actually were more reliable than foreign rivals, and they were built like tanks, and evil dictators would cruise around in them because they could withstand nuclear attack and come out totally unscathed, except for those little flags mounted on the front bumpers. We also have years of JD Power Long Term Dependability Studies, which routinely place American or Japanese cars into the top dependability spots, while German cars go into entirely different categories, such as Broke Down on the Way to Test Facility. The other theory is that these cars actually will live on, perfectly preserved, in Germany. Just think of the luxurious Mercedes, Audi, Porsche – all from companies that are respected and known all over the world. German engineers appear to value performance above all, so if a part can be made 20% lighter, they will, regardless that it impacts the longevity or likelihood to break (different things). German engineering companies are famous for their incredible products. He worked as a manager for Porsche Cars North America before quitting to become a writer, largely because it meant he no longer had to wear pants. For this reason, I have taken to measuring automotive reliability on a scale I've dubbed the "Audi Allroad Scale Of Unreliability," which rates cars based on how close they are to the original Audi Allroad in terms of potential for random four-figure maintenance bills. German engineering companies are famous for their incredible products. /Font <> Whereas an American will resolve the check engine light by a) going to Home Depot for some electrical tape to cover it up, and b) visiting McDonald's on the way home. This is largely because no one questions the prowess of German engineering; they're still the best at that. Therefore, everything will succeed and fail in an exact way as predicted. … Teacher doesn't comes to class regularly.. Japanese. For proof, I start with my own experience owning German cars. I came up with the idea for today's column – that the only thing less reliable than a German car is a Happy Meal wristwatch – a few weeks ago while talking to a German friend. Heck in Japan they even have robots that package food boxes, Not to mention the Japanese came up with Hybrid and Electric Cars, and their cars are way more reliable than American and German. Ladies and gentlemen, I’ve written a book. He owned an E63 AMG wagon and once tried to evade police at the Tail of the Dragon using a pontoon boat. And they couldn't just have a regular V6 engine – they had to add two turbochargers. Whichever country does this best will progress beyond its competitors. /StructParents 0 And my Mercedes G-Wagen suffered throttle response problems until I realized it was rusty enough to be a Civil War-era shipwreck. I'm a final year Electronics engineering student? But let's be honest here, folks: this is no longer the case. OK, so maybe they weren't that bad. endobj German or Japanese engineering? There were failed window regulators, check engine lights, prematurely worn suspension components, and phantom tire pressure monitors. Japanese engineering is simplistic but reliable and easy to maintain. 2 0 obj Japanese engineering is cost-driven, to make a good product at lowest cost. They actually think that modern German cars, which use the same technology for cruise control as our government uses to monitor the skies for impending nuclear warfare, will still be running perfectly in 20 years. >> 2Q## ᒦm$��c�f����0�\��V��ʼ���;�xah���ư'.�C�L��g,��74�(�K�-�����5Fi}ac���;�>~��H1�Px|����:������м~S�s߬c3��g� �86��䀆��)x3&7�Br�0g�{�r��gU�Y���k��ݗ��z3��=�I�N�jȷj�o��� =5�b31�K�Ed��^�S�}� �A��ɳ��ƃ�qw�I"�$��{�Wv*��ǟ�`W�RQ�ܱM��a��#(��q�{~���kz'�*�t�Z�@F�H��#A��. Both automakers are consistent and produce high-quality units. Maybe even worse if the chimpanzees are German. American engineering is frequently driven by the corporate bean-counters or non-engineers who are only interested in low cost with little regard to quality. Oh, sure, they have relatively few problems for the first few years of ownership. Goto is a small group of islands which is over 3 hours by ferry from the bottom of Nagasaki. They have superior quality and display a skilled craftsmanship that cannot be matched anywhere in the world. So they continue to show their engineering dominance by creating all sorts of crazy gadgets and sticking them in the cars; stuff that no one wants, such as cooled gloveboxes, and rear armrest refrigerators, and those little tray tables that fold down, presumably to allow people riding in … In my humble opinion: Germans focus on quality, and accept the added costs associated with superb engineering. In this video you will see some of Nissan's/ Datsun's iconic cars that shaped the industry that we know today.Koshikubi's facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/ZeroSpiritsRacing/#EngineBuilder #Japan #Secret Germans and Japanese perform engineering on every single component of a machine. Because of his remote location he is hidden away \u0026 his work is one of Japan's best kept secrets. >> Siemens's trainees have come from all over Europe for the company's three-year programme, that will give them an income while they learn the art of German engineering… stream And. <> endobj if a guy we know has a wind farm of 2,000 or 3,0000 turbines how big/small would one be?
