Designing with Digits
Wayne K. Cherry is the vice president of GM’s North American Operations Design Center. He’s the fifth person to head up GM Design.
Cherry has been with GM Design since 1962, which, obviously, means that he’s seen a lot in that period of time. As so far as he’s concerned, the single biggest change that he’s encountered—in fact he describes it as “single biggest change in the way we develop vehicles in the history of the auto industry”—is the use of math, or digital tools for designing, engineering, and producing vehicles.
