Failure Mode and Effects Analysis (FMEA) is an essential part of any product design or redesign activity. FMEA is a proactive, quantitative, qualitative, step-by-step approach for identifying and analyzing all potential points of failure in any product or service. This team-based activity can dramatically improve product performance. It can also reduce manufacturing issues at the component, system, and processing level.   This module gives a high-level overview of FMEA facts: WHAT an FMEA is, WHY they are used, WHEN an FMEA is created, WHO is on the FMEA development team, and HOW the FMEA form is completed.

Finite Element Analysis (FEA) is a computer-aided engineering (CAE) tool used to analyze how a design reacts under real-world conditions. Useful in structural, vibration, and thermal analysis, FEA has been widely implemented by automotive companies and is used by design engineers as a tool during the product development process. Design engineers analyze their own designs while they are still in the form of easily modifiable CAD models to allow for quick turnaround times and to ensure prompt implementation of analysis results in the design process.

How do you solve a problem? Do you find yourself using quick and easy solutions or a structured methodology? Too often, organizations tend to seek quick solutions to a problem without adequately addressing its underlying cause. These decisions often result in solutions that don’t work or aren’t sustainable, often wasting time, effort, and money. To combat these issues and adopt a fresh approach, teams can use the methods and tools of Root Cause Problem Solving.

An Infinitely Variable Transmission (IVT) is a subset of a CVT (Continuously Variable Transmission) defined as a device that has a range of ratios of input shaft speed to output shaft speed which includes an Infinite ratio in which the output speed is zero.  Typically these devices include both positive and negative ratios on either side of zero resulting in the ability to move forward and reverse from rest without a clutch:  IVTs can improve vehicle performance while maintaining or exceeding benchmark functionality and performance. IVTs are a good candidate for future, fuel-efficient vehicles, particularly hybrids and AWDs.

Finite Element Analysis (FEA) has been used by engineers as a design tool in new product development since the early 1990's. Until recently, most FEA applications have been limited to static analysis due to the cost and complexity of advanced types of analyses. Progress in the commercial FEA software and in computing hardware has now made it practical to use advanced types as an everyday design tool of design engineers. In addition, competitive pressures and quality requirements demand a more in-depth understanding of product behavior under real life loading conditions.

While the topic of profile is covered in a basic Geometric Dimensioning & Tolerancing (GD&T) course, those discussions often ignore the variations allowed with these symbols that enable them to be used in complex ways. This advanced web seminar will clarify the proper use of the profile tolerances in GD&T and uncover the nuances of these two symbols. Since profile of a surface is arguably the most powerful GD&T symbol, its full potential will be explored. It can be used to control size, form, orientation, and location and its relationship to datums can be varied.

While the basics of position are covered in a standard Geometric Dimensioning & Tolerancing (GD&T) course, and sometimes a lone example of composite position is given, those discussions often overlook the variations allowed that enable more accurate control based on part function. This advanced web seminar will clarify the proper use of “double-decker” position controls in GD&T. There are two distinct types: composite position (one symbol) and two single-segment position controls (two symbols). These are commonly used to locate patterns of features (bolt circles, etc.), but they are rarely taught in any depth.
