This paper uses the descriptive Artisan-Patron (AP) model to create a transparent framework to analyze how environmental variables such as fuel price, price of steel, and CAFE´ legislation affected the evolution of the automobile (namely horsepower and weight). The analysis and results demonstrate the utility of the AP model as a frame for complex multi-epoch adaptive design problems.
