Summer Series: A Closer Look at Services We Offer

Part 1: Subject Matter Expertise

By definition, a subject matter expert is a person who is an authority in a particular area or topic. At Kinetic Metrics, our expertise lies in the automotive field. With over 20 years combined experience in the automotive industry, we can provide a high-level of expertise to a variety of clients. 

What We Can Do

Insight into Vehicle Development: From design to production, we can support a client with our knowledge of the vehicle development process. This includes researching how a specific design may be impacted by safety compliance standards, ensuring proper documentation processes are in place, and reviewing Design Failure Mode and Effects Analysis (DFMEA).

Compliance, Defects, and Recalls: For new companies or clients that do not normally operate in the automotive space, we can consult on how the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) approaches vehicle compliance, defect investigations, and recalls. As former engineers at NHTSA, we can pull from past experiences to give insight not only into NHTSAs’ process, but provide our own opinions on what the potential outcomes of a situation may be.

Advanced Vehicle Technologies: Whether you are a manufacturer looking to implement a new technology, or an individual looking to invest in one, we can provide an assessment into the current market needs and identify potential gaps. We strive to ensure that we give you the best possible knowledge and advice to make informed decisions.

Who Can Benefit?
