In testing an early prototype of a six-speed manual transmission, jumps were seen in the force applied to the shifter lever and felt by the driver of the vehicle. These jumps in shifting effort, called nibble by transmission manufacturers, do not affect the performance or durability of the transmission, but they are important because the reaction force against the gear shift helps define the shift quality of the transmission for the driver.  MSC.Adams was used to quickly predict the performance of design variants.
