Through direct investment made by Saipa as an Iranian Company, Automotive Industries Research & Innovation Center of Saipa was established in 1993 and subsequently by building of administrative offices, workshops, laboratories as well as purchasing and installing required hardware and software equipment was officially operated in 1997.
The position of Automotive Industries Research & Innovation Center of Saipa at the beginning of products development chain as driving motor of Saipa Group has persuaded this center to enhance its own potentials and capabilities through creation of necessary infrastructures for accomplishment of product development plans and stabilize its position as the pioneer of product development projects specially in the field of Sedan vehicles.
Automotive Industries Research & Innovation Center of Saipa is known as the first science-based vehicle-related research and design center in IRAN.
SAIPA Product Development System (SPDS) is mainly based on the new product development approaches and has been designed and established by benchmarking of world class Auto Manufactures.
This System, which is a process oriented system, considers different process interactions within a gateway regime and also project integrity, so reduction in time and cost of product development could be achieved. The main concept behind this system, is to transfer any modifications of the product to the initial phases of the project instead of the ending phases.
