Título: The addition of Design for Armoring as an engineering Methodology in the development of premium civilian vehicles

Autor(es): Candido, Guido Muzio.; Kaminski, Paulo Carlos

Brazil for more than two decades is the largest producer of civilian
armored vehicles in the world, where in 2018 almost 12,000 new
vehicles received this type of protection in the country, contributing
to an estimated armored fleet reaching almost 220 thousand units. In
2019, there was an estimated growth of between 20% and 25%
compared to the previous year, where premium segment vehicles
characterize the majority of civilian armored vehicles. In this context,
this paper presents an overview, in the country, of the main models of
civilian vehicles that are armored at ballistic protection type III-A
level against handguns, according to the NIJ 0108.01 standard, from
the National Institute of Justice of the United States. In this sense,
just as automakers adopt DFM and DFA, Design for Manufacturing
and Design for Assembly, as part of their vehicle developments, the
purpose of this paper is to present and propose the addition of DFAr,
Design for Armoring in premium vehicle projects. The main idea is
to properly design the vehicle by considering the inclusion of opaque
and transparent protective materials in the vehicle system still during
the assembly process as to guarantee automotive and ballistic quality
in case they are armored according to NIJ III-A protection level. The
objective is to provide, still during the design phase, the necessary
spaces in the automobile for the correct installation of these armoring
materials, to safeguard the original functionalities of the automotive
components and simultaneously provide the required ballistic
protection of the vehicle while attaining all quality requirements.

The automotive industry, like so many others, is naturally
competitive. Minor errors and differences result not only in monetary
losses or gains, but also in impacts that are difficult to measure, such
as customer confidence in products of a certain brand, or even its
reputation. Among the small differences directly at work after sales is
the “invisible” action of legislation of a particular place regarding
consumer rights. In order to analyze different legislation guidelines in
the event of failures, this work will present the correlation between
automotive recalls, call of vehicles carried out in an organized
manner after the presentation of abnormal behavior due to the
probable error occurred in the assembly or manufacture of the
automobile, and the different laws of three regions of interest: Brazil,
United States of America and the European Union. The work, after a
detailed explanation of the different laws of the three regions, shows
concrete relationships between the disclosures affected by the
regulations of a given region and the impacts that they have on the
relationship between consumer and seller, that is, on society.
