ABSTRACT
Changes in how Ford Motor Co. designs its vehicle interiors have helped save the company millions of dollars. But the effort has not compromised the individuality of cars such as the new 2005 Mustang, according to a project team's leader. The new model still captures the essence of the iconic pony car that launched 40 years ago. But it sure wasn't easy. In the automotive market, there are so many more safety restrictions and requirements now than before, from air-bag regulations to ergonomic considerations, that every interior element faces a series of hurdles that somehow must be accommodated.
