Proven and Validated

MISA is our approach to solving the biggest challenges. 

Multimatic DSSV™ for Chevrolet Colorado ZR2

Achieving the nearly impossible.

Synthesis. Validation. Correlation.

Multimatic Integrated Systems Analysis (MISA)

Helps define the problem from all angles — vehicle, system, component — and solve it.

Synthesis

Development of:

  • High level design brief
  • A vehicle-level specification
  • A system-level specification
  • A component-level specification

MISA

Synthesis
Setting vehicle, system and component-level specs.

Component Design

Validation
Components, systems and vehicles versus targets.

Correlation
Repeating until all is right.

MISA changes “trial & error” to “define & optimize”.

This sequence illustrates MISA’s value in the development of Multimatic DSSV™ dampers for the Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 pickup.

1. Synthesis: Design Brief and Vehicle-Level Specification
In collaboration with GM, the initial “Synthesis” phase defined a design brief and vehicle-level specification. This became the target against which vehicle performance was later measured.
