Engineers and managers involved with product development are constantly challenged to reduce time to market, minimize warranty costs, and increase product quality. With less and less time for testing, the need for effective accelerated test procedures has never been greater. This course covers the benefits, limitations, processes, and applications of several proven accelerated test methods including accelerated reliability, step stress, FSLT (Full System Life Test), FMVT® (Failure Mode Verification Testing), HALT (Highly Accelerated Life Testing), and HASS (Highly Accelerated Stress Screening). A combination of hands-on exercises, team activities, discussion, and lecture are used throughout the course. Participants will also receive a copy of the instructor's book, Accelerated Testing and Validation Management, which includes numerous hands-on exercises and a CD with analytical spreadsheets. Attendees are requested to bring a calculator to the seminar.

It is a well-known fact that the number of women in science, engineering and business fields is growing, yet men continue to outnumber women, especially at the upper levels of these professions. Many women appear to encounter a series of challenges at early or midcareer stages that contribute to them leaving their careers prematurely due to feelings of isolation, an unsupportive work environment, extreme work schedules, and unclear rules about advancement and success. This program serves as a unique opportunity to obtain both formal and informal mentoring tips from a successful woman engineer who spent over 25 years in the petrochemical/specialty chemical industry. She has seen and has experienced significant changes in the number of professional women active in the technical/scientific field and is convinced that more positive change can happen in the future. This seminar will provide detailed guidance, based on real life examples, on how female professionals can become proactive in creating career opportunities via self-assessment, self-motivation, an objective view of one’s own abilities, and continuous steps in self-improvement.

This seminar provides an introduction to the fundamental concepts and evolution of passenger car and light truck 4x4/all-wheel drive (AWD) systems including the nomenclature utilized to describe these systems. Basic power transfer unit and transfer case design parameters, component application to system function, the future of AWD systems, and emerging technologies that may enable future systems are covered. This course is an excellent follow-up to the "A Familiarization of Drivetrain Components" seminar (which is designed for those who have limited experience with the total drivetrain).

An efficient, robust, and quiet running drivetrain is as essential to customer satisfaction as styling and interior creature comforts. In this seminar, you will be exposed to various methods that can be used to accomplish this goal. Designed to help you visualize both individual components and the entire drivetrain system - without reference to complicated equations - this seminar focuses on the terms, functions, nomenclature, operating characteristics and effect on vehicle performance for each of the drivetrain components. Attendees will receive an introduction to the various components of the drivetrain, including the clutch or torque converter, manual or automatic transmission, driveshaft, axle, wheel ends, and brakes. This course also provides insight into: the structure and function of each component; vehicle integration; and related noise, vibration and harshness issues. You will be equipped to evaluate the space requirements, mounting needs, clearances required, and effect on vehicle response for each component.

SAE Engineering Academies provide comprehensive and immersive training experiences, helping new and re-assigned engineers become proficient and productive in a short period of time. The Hybrid and Electric Vehicle Engineering Academy covers hybrid and electric vehicle engineering concepts, theory, and applications relevant to HEV, PHEV, EREV, and BEV for the passenger car industry. While the theory and concepts readily apply to the commercial vehicle industry as well, the examples and applications used will apply primarily to the passenger car industry.

Driven by the need for lower emissions, better fuel economy and higher efficiency, hybrid vehicles are appearing in many different configurations on today's roadways. While the powertrain components such as the drive motor, motor controller and cooling system are somewhat familiar to the automotive industry, the battery systems are a relatively unfamiliar aspect. This seminar will introduce participants to the concepts of hybrid vehicles, their missions and the role of batteries in fulfilling those requirements. Battery topics including limitations, trends in hybrid development, customer wants and needs, battery system development timelines, comparison of electrochemistries and safety will be examined. Current offerings, cost factors, pack design considerations and testing will also be reviewed. Students will have an opportunity to perform a battery pack analysis exercise using a real world application and are requested to bring a calculator to class.

Engineers are taught to create designs that meet customer specifications. When creating these designs, the focus is usually on the nominal values rather than variation. Robustness refers to creating designs that are insensitive to variability in the inputs. Much of the literature on robustness is dedicated to experimental techniques, particularly Taguchi techniques, which advocate using experiments with replications to estimate variation. This course presents mathematical formulas based on derivatives to determine system variation based on input variation and knowledge of the engineering function. If the function is unknown, experimental techniques are presented to efficiently estimate a function. The concept of designing for both nominal values and variability is expanded to multiple outputs and designing to minimizing costs. Traditionally, if the output variation is too large to meet requirements, the tolerances (variation) of the inputs are reduced. Using the approach presented in this course, the equations presented can be used to identify the contribution of each of the inputs to the output variation.

This in-depth course covers the GD&T system per ASME Y14.5-2009, including why it reduces costs, how to interpret the symbols, and how to apply these tolerances correctly. Participants will learn the basic definitions and rules, the importance of datums, the meaning of each tolerance, and sample ways of gaging geometric tolerances. The class is mainly lecture, with many practice exercises. Participants are encouraged to bring sample parts and/or prints (with or without GD&T already applied) to class for questions. Time is reserved for discussing the application of GD&T to your parts/prints. Note: A similar course is available live online or on demand.
