Episode 35 - How Do You Engineer Automobiles?
This week we're joined by Mechanical Engineer Jason Desouza-Coelho to talk about the ins and outs of auto manufacturing. We discuss the surprising honesty of at-the-limit design, and the rigorous testing and validation that goes into each part. Join us as we discuss the practicality of vended paste extrusion, and the indestructibility of Toyota's pickups. Pete actually wasn't too far off; PPAP stands for Production Part Approval Process.
