We talk a lot about vehicle technology and how it has developed. This is one of the reasons why a minimum of 100 hours of technical training are required per year now for a technician just to keep level with vehicle knowledge and why management requires 6 to 8 days of business training per year. It is a true Profession today. The Trade days are long gone; almost the equivalent to an Engineering Degree required moving forward.
As was presented at the Global Automotive Aftermarket Symposium in Chicago this year, the 2014 vehicle has reached 100 million lines of software code. One Hundred Million!!
Compare that to:
Hubble telescope – 5 million lines
Boeing 787 – 9 million lines
Facebook – 62 million lines
When will all of us at every level of this industry start to respect what we are part of together and take great pride in showing the consumer and education institutions what an incredible industry and Profession this is? The AUTOCARE industry …..WOW!!
