The transition from Internal Combustion Engines (ICE) to Battery Electric Vehicles (BEV) represents a profound shift in the automotive industry, impacting the U.S. supply chain. As this transition continues, the entire ecosystem of automotive components, systems, and services will be impacted, creating an opportunity for entities specializing in testing services and systems integration, like ACS.
Matt Jorgensen, director of facility engineering and site management at ACS contributed to Alex Grant’s article, Are You Ready for the Future?, in the March 2023 issue of Automotive Testing Technology International. Using the example of the shift in powertrain testing from ICE to EV, he addresses the topic of green practices, whether building new or renovating an existing facility.
Systems integration takes a focused approach to the minute details of the organization’s big-picture goals during the design and build of R&D test facilities. It is the deliberate task of bringing the operational requirements of equipment and processes into light during the pre-planning, design, build, commissioning, and acceptance stages.
Matt Thiel, director of facility planning and integration at ACS was interviewed by John Challen in the September 2022 issue of Automotive Testing Technology International and shared some of his insights, regarding circumstances for modernizing.
