Self Study Program 200113 – Audi Body Construction

VAG SSP 200113. This Self-Study Program (SSP) explains the basic associations of material science, steel production and the treatment processes leading up to painting. It will lay the foundations for better understanding of the procedures if body repairs are necessary.

What comes to mind when you think about a vehicle? Normally the drivetrain, the engine, the performance and the design come first.

But what would a car be without its body? The body is the central component of a vehicle that connects all other vehicle components and, at the same time, manages to accommodate the passengers.

It meets high technical requirements as well as the comfort expectations of passengers. The body also creates the vehicle face and brand personality.

A modern body needs to stay in good condition for the whole “life” of the car so that no unnecessary costs arise. This prevents a fast moral decline of a vehicle model and the brand will be held in high esteem.

It is also important that damage to a body can be repaired and this high quality vehicle component can retain its properties and appearance.
