Plastic - any class of synthetically-produced organic compounds capable of being molded and hardened into a specific shape or form. This course is designed to offer a basic understanding of plastics and plastic processing. Using plastics can be simple, but there is much more behind producing high performance plastic parts. This seminar will walk you through the molding process, provide a comprehensive look at the variables in the manufacturing mix, and review characteristics of typical automotive plastics such as PP, PVC, ABS, and more. This seminar will also cover troubleshooting molding mistakes and alternative processes, and review the selection of an application's appropriate plastic material.

Design reviews are required for ISO 9001:2000 compliance and compatible automotive and aerospace specifications. They are becoming increasingly important in product liability litigation and are accepted as a cost-effective best practice and an effective application of knowledge management, valuable for accelerating the maturity of new products. This seminar describes how formal design reviews can improve products by uncovering potential problems before they are discovered at a later stage of development or application, when the costs of correction are much higher. A broad range of effective techniques for organizing and conducting design reviews will be presented.

Design for Manufacturing and Assembly (DFM+A), pioneered by Boothroyd and Dewhurst, has been used by many companies around the world to develop creative product designs that use optimal manufacturing and assembly processes. Correctly applied, DFM+A analysis leads to significant reductions in production cost, without compromising product time-to-market goals, functionality, quality, serviceability, or other attributes. In this two-day seminar, you will not only learn the Boothroyd Dewhurst Method, you will actually apply it to your own product design! This seminar will include information on how DFM+A fits in with QFD, concurrent engineering, robust engineering, and other disciplines.

Most muffler design in the automotive industry is accomplished by using "cut-and-try" methods that rely on what has worked in the past and/or extensive full-scale testing on engines for validation. New computer software aimed at muffler design can shorten the design cycle and yield more effective results. This four hour seminar provides an introduction to the behavior of mufflers and silencers including a description of the two-port approach to muffler design. This seminar covers the acoustic simulation of muffler and silencer systems and the use of experimental methods to measure muffler performance.

The influx of different hybrid and electric vehicle configurations has brought about unique NVH challenges from a variety of sources. NVH refinement is an important aspect of powertrain development and the vehicle integration process. While developing the NVH behavior of the vehicle is critical to satisfy customer expectations, it is also important to consider the influence of reduced exterior noise levels on pedestrian safety. This seminar introduces participants to basic NVH principles and unique NVH challenges encountered in the development of HEV, ReEV, and EV including engine start/stop behavior, electric motor whine, driveline NVH, body structure, influence of noise from accessories, and sound quality development, as well as potential countermeasures.

The purpose of this session is to describe solutions for weight savings, which is a well-known strategy for improving fuel consumption in vehicles, and to explain the NVH impact of these weight reductions. Weight savings can come from interior and structural parts of vehicle in the form of one of the following solutions: composite materials, light weight alloys, aluminum & magnesium versus steel, bonding dissimilar materials, new damping compounds, elimination of mass barriers, higher performance acoustical products, reduction of part weight, reduction of part size, material substitutions, or reduced complexity of parts. NVH countermeasures for these weight reduction solutions will be outlined so that lightweight design for next generation vehicles can be implemented with attention to noise and vibration throughout the vehicle.
