The Bus and Truck industry is a significant lifeline of the countrys economic activity. Over three million Heavy vehicles traverse the length and breadth of our country, contributing immensely to movement of commodities, expansion of commerce and enhancement of the GDP. An important fact of this industry is its highly diversified character of ownership. About 90 per cent of vehicles are owned and operated by individual operators having 1 to 3 vehicles in their fleet. Also, over 70 per cent of them are owner-drivers directly depending on trucking for livelihood. The SIMPLEX manufacturers have a large role to play to assist this segment by giving design recommendations on interface aspects, wherever necessary, in order to ensure the safety and performance levels of their vehicles after body building and when used on the road. Various aspects related with the design of Bus and Truck with respect to the cab, the load body, requirements for hazardous goods vehicles, containers and their requirements for mounting, handling and securing, requirements for trailers etc. need to be addressed in the right perspective. Here in this thesis the work under Simplex manufacturing was shown by taking whole manufacturing and assembling of chassis for bus and trucks was considered. As known every machine has their own standards which were created or developed according to their need and safety for environment. So here in this report we present all the required standards for manufacturing used in the manufacturing industry for the safety of human and vehicles which shows all the necessary work under the company and also the modified standards according to the safety needs to overcome hazards.
