Powertrain as-installed subsystems have a common fundamental function to perform in harmony, enabling the engine to power the vehicle and/or accessories. There is a need to avoid issues such as idle roughness and to realize these are system interaction issues. For example, modal alignment affects idle roughness, and improving idle roughness can affect fuel economy.

This 12-hour Ford online course discusses hardware design, function, and major interfaces of powertrain as-installed stationary subsystems. It also discusses Design Verification System (DVS) metrics/performance requirements for each subsystem and how each subsystem affects other subsystems. The course is aimed at increasing powertrain engineers' awareness of the system-level interactions and tradeoffs related to their design and release actions and their ability to make informed decisions. While certain Ford proprietary information has been removed from the course, it contains essentially the same content that engineers from Ford and select suppliers have benefitted from taking.
