GMW3172 has been developed by General Motors (GM) to describe the environmental and durability requirements for testing electrical and electronic components in GM vehicles based on their mounting location. The requirements described in the standard specify the analytical, developmental, and validation requirements for activities of electrical and electronic components used in the GM vehicle's environment to ensure the vehicle's reliability over time.
There are four testing phases that complete GMW3172:
Analysis: The first phase focuses on the design and reliability of the electrical components.
Development: In this phase, the focus is set on evaluating the first samples and improving the design.
Design Validation: During this phase, the focus is set on environmental, durability, and reliability in the designs and materials by providing quantitative and qualitative verification.
Product Validation: This last phase focuses on the quantitative and qualitative verification for the environmental, durability, and reliability of the produced samples.
