11:20 - 11:50 Interactive Session/Panel Discussion
Delivering a Brand; How do we Define Success in NVH
- Innovation and Core Brand Values
► What is more important; enhanced good characterstics or elimination of
error states
► Balance of refinement and sporty sound
► Technology development and brand specifics
► How should we balance NVH and weight targets? With the advancement
of modern development techniques, are these no longer mutually exclusive attributes?
► How do we define success in NVH?
► Acoustic performance as a selling feature
► Legislative limits vs. fun to drive
 Chaired by our Scientific Committee
