Emission Control Emission Control
Work to develop new technology, which is the root to creating attractive products.
A technique as a whole, where the expertise from various fields are used for the design. These fields include mathematics, natural science, and social science, as well as the principle or method of technical and engineering analysis and design. This is used for improvements and is applied to the system that covers personnel, resources and facilities, where the results are predicted and evaluated.

Shows by how many percent the parts are ordered from the supplier. When the parts are ordered from more than one supplier, the total of the share rate of each supplier should be 100%.When 100 parts are required.-1. When purchasing 100 parts from supplier A, the share rate for A is 100%.-2. When purchasing 70 parts from supplier A and 30 parts from supplier B, the share rate for A and B is 70% and 30% respectively.
consignment research cost
Honda pays a set percentage of its sales amount to HG, EG, KG (vaporizer research center) as research consignment fee. This amount is referred to as the consignment research fee.
lump-sum settlement method
This is a method of payment alternative to a draft.Based on the three-party contract established between the parent company, subcontractor, and financial institution, the subcontractors can ask the financial institution for a loan or payment by mortgaging or transferring their credit for their subcontracted work.What is unique to this method is that the payment is made via a financial institution, while the payment is directly made from the parent company to the subcontractors when paid in cash or draft.
Real-size models assembled when quick building of a mock-up is necessary quickly to acquire overall image.
IMPACT IMPACT (Information Management of Parts Suppliers Contact Totalization system)
A system that attempt to expedite communication between Honda and to reduce suppliers and lead time.

receiving receipt & verification
When the parts are delivered from suppliers, the contents and the quantity are collated with the delivery slip.
Australian Design Rule
Design regulations in Australia which are applied to the vehicles sold and used in Australia
Means that experts from each field evaluate the project subject and give advice from an objective position.
Supplemental Restraint System
Passenger protection system which supplements the seat belt.
Selective Enforcement Auditing
Sampling inspection from the mass production line.A person responsible from the EPA directly goes to the vehicle manufacturer to check the conformity of the vehicles (measuring EM, others).
