This seminar will include a review of statistical theory and present statistical methods, which are used to better select and/or analyze Tolerance Stack-ups. The Probability (RMS) Method, the Monte Carlo Simulation Technique and tolerance optimization techniques will be discussed along with guidelines on which method(s) to use in given situations. Attendees will also view a demonstration of a microcomputer Monte Carlo Simulation program that analyzes the effects of form and assembly variation on the quality of a finished product. This seminar will provide an overview of Design of Experiments (DOE) methods, which enable effective analysis of critical product dimensions and tolerances.

Starting with a look at the transmission's primary function -- to couple the engine to the driveline and provide torque ratios between the two -- this updated and expanded seminar covers the latest transmission systems designed to achieve the most efficient engine operation. Current designs, the components and sub-systems used, their functional modes, how they operate, and the inter-relationships will be discussed. A manual transmission display will be used to explain ratios and how they function within the driveline. Automatic transmission design will illustrate the concept of automatic control and hydro-mechanic decision theory and implementation.

The quest for more efficient, smarter, and environmentally cleaner liquid-fueled spark ignition (SI) reciprocating engines is more alive and intense now than ever before. GDI SI engines have overcome many of the original limitations and are now becoming commonplace. This seminar will provide a comprehensive overview of GDI engines. Mixture preparation and the combustion process, with an emphasis on strategies for both homogenous and stratified charge operation and control, including issues related to the direct injection of gasoline into the combustion chamber, and fuel injection system requirements for optimal spray characteristics will be explored.

Preventing future problems and troubleshooting existing problems in today's stamping plants requires greater stamping process knowledge. The link between inputs and outputs isn't as clear as many think, increasing the need for detailed understanding of the variables involved. This course discusses the key inputs and outputs associated with sheet metal stamping, including important elements for controlling the process and making it more robust. The course reviews sheet metal characteristics and their application, especially from a formability standpoint, using many automotive-related examples. Common issues such as springback, dent resistance, and process differences among mild steel, high strength steel, bake hardenable steel, and aluminum are discussed.

Around the world, and more often than not, government bodies require formal certification of products. As product developers expand into new markets, they will be confronted with new standards, regulations, and customer expectations that may require new compliance processes. A properly run compliance program improves your product’s quality and safety, broadens your product’s market, ensures compliance with regulations and laws, and helps provide protection from future product liability issues. This two-day seminar presents a process development methodology that can be used repeatedly as new compliance requirements emerge.

Meeting the requirements of heavy-duty engine emissions regulations is a challenge for all engine manufacturers. Since the introduction of Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) in medium and heavy-duty diesel engines, these systems have become more sophisticated and tightly integrated with emission control systems. This 2-day seminar will explore the advantages and disadvantages of EGR and the most effective implementation of various EGR systems. This seminar will begin by defining EGR and why it is used in diesel engines, along with an explanation of the mechanisms by which EGR is able to reduce NOx.

On-board diagnosis of engine and transmission systems has been mandated by government regulation for light and medium vehicles since the 1996 model year. The regulations specify many of the detailed features that on-board diagnostics must exhibit. In addition, the penalties for not meeting the requirements or providing in-field remedies can be very expensive. This course is designed to provide a fundamental understanding of how and why OBD systems function and the technical features that a diagnostic should have in order to ensure compliant and successful implementation. Fundamental design objectives and features needed to achieve those objectives for generic on-board diagnostics will be covered.

Design and development of a modern steering system influences vehicle response, driver controllability, comfort, safety and fuel economy. In this interactive seminar, participants will analyze the steering system, from the steering wheel to the road wheel. The seminar will cover the anatomy and architecture of the lower steering system (wheel end suspension geometry, linkages and steering gear), its effect on vehicle response, and how a force at the contact patch is translated to a torque in the steering wheel. The anatomy and architecture of the upper steering system (steering column and intermediate shaft), including the topic of non-uniformity and the role of the upper steering in the occupant protection system will also be explored.
