Portfolio Development Center. Part of the NAO Design and Engineering Centers charged with providing advanced vehicle engineering for product portfolio planning and vehicle architecture definition. Develops integrated vehicle proposals, rationalized with the portfolio to improve and accelerate the vehicle launch process. Plan, Do, Check, Act; the basic philosophy behind the Engineering Management Process as developed by Deming over the first few years of his career; PLAN defines the system through a set of objectives, and a strategy. The DO portion is the actual design of the parts to execute the vehicle and the tools and processes required to build the parts and cars. The CHECK element of the cycle is the VALIDATION of the paper car and process, the product and the process. The ACT relates to continuous improvement where improvements are based on the results of needs identified in the CHECK. Product Design Compliance Reports Pulsat Dealer Communication System.
