Competencies / intended learning achievements

Students will be able to
  • model the usage variability of vehicles or comparable technical systems,
  • derive assessment bases for commercial vehicles,
  • deduce load assumptions for subsystems and components,
  • assess the significance of testing and calculation for system dimensioning
  • describe the most important load data analysis methods and use them in practice
