Testing for BSRs typically involves road simulation testing that helps to isolate the root cause (or causes) of vibrations and road harshness that produce unwanted sounds audible within an automobile’s passenger compartment. Additional assessments can evaluate the extent to which automobile velocity, acceleration and force can produce or enhance these sounds. And retesting can be conducted to evaluate the effectiveness of proposed fixes in reducing or eliminating them.
Unresolved BSRs can result in costly rework and repairs during the manufacturing process, as well as excessive warranty expenses during the vehicles useful life. And, as previously noted, BSRs can be a source of annoyance and frustration for consumers, negatively impacting perceptions of your brand’s quality and deterring customers from considering your products in the future.
