Today's transportation industries are facing multi-disciplinary challenges. The product design and development process challenges often contradict each other, for example cost, weight, quality and performance. A central challenge is the need for cost and mass reduction to compete in the global market, while continuing to meet all new and existing requirements for quality and performance. Accelerated Concept to Product (ACP) Process is a performance-driven, holistic, product design development method intended to create a balance between structure and strength, synchronizing the individual facets of the product development process.

Geometric dimensioning and tolerancing (GD&T) is used as a symbolic way of showing specific tolerances on drawings. GD&T is a valuable tool that effectively communicates the design intent to manufacturing and inspection. It is governed by the technical standard ASME Y14.5M-2009. This course introduces participants to the GD&T system, providing a working knowledge of the correct interpretation and application of each symbol, general rules, the datum system, and 'bonus' tolerance and highlighting some of the changes in the updated Y14.5 standard. The material is reinforced with many practice exercises.

Hybrids, and to a lesser extent, electric vehicles, have been on the road since 1997. Although just two hybrids were on the market in 2001, there are more than several dozen today, and the market is ramping up quickly, driven by fuel prices and constraints, environmental regulations, and customer demand. The commercial vehicle market is also rapidly embracing hybrid technology. This two-hour web seminar will highlight the passenger, light-duty, and heavy-duty hybrid and electric vehicles that are currently in production, offered for sale, or planned for near-term production. Asian, European, and North American manufacturers of hybrid and electric vehicles will be reviewed.

The path to commercialization of plug-in hybrids is likely to require complex interactions between OEMs, battery manufacturers, electric utilities, and government, yet the plug-in hybrid is a still-developing technology. How do plug-in hybrids (PHEVs) differ from conventional hybrids? What are the advantages and challenges for vehicle manufacturers, public utilities, energy and environmental concerns, and end-users? What is the current state of plug-in hybrid development? Those unfamiliar with PHEV or vehicle-to-grid (V2G) technology, yet whose job will be impacted by plug-in hybrid vehicles in the future, will benefit from this two-hour web seminar.

High-voltage, high-current energy storage systems and electrical circuits in many current and future alternative-propulsion powertrains present unique challenges to the automotive industry. Care must be taken to minimize risk to all who come into contact with the vehicle throughout its development and life cycle, including powertrain developers, assembly line workers, service technicians, vehicle occupants, and first responders. Significant risk to life and limb can arise from technical issues surrounding these vehicles. This 120-minute web seminar reviews safety concerns and precautions related to high-voltage circuits present in hybrid, plug-in hybrid, electric, and fuel cell hybrid vehicles.

Hybrid powertrains have been on the market for more than a decade and have become one of the most successful alternative powertrains available today. More than a million hybrids are sold globally per year, primarily in Japan and the US. Some OEMs estimate that up to 80% of their light-duty vehicles may require some level of hybridization to meet upcoming CAFE regulations in the United States. Hybrids are also starting to make inroads into markets in Europe, and have recently been introduced to Chinese and Indian markets, among others. Basic information on hybrids is scattered among information sources, and is often difficult to synthesize.

In the past few decades, product liability law has dramatically changed the manufacturer's outlook in the design and manufacture of product. The concept of safety and reliability has been altered from a purely engineering/manufacturing concept to a legal/manufacturing approach. This new approach requires an understanding of legal concepts as related to the manufacturing and design process. The engineer's role has shifted to include a safety audit analysis to minimize the existence of a product defect and/or to defend the product in a way that is responsive to the legal concerns. An overnight assignment will be made by the instructor.

Design of Experiments (DOE) is a methodology that can be effective for general problem-solving, as well as for improving or optimizing product design and manufacturing processes. Specific applications of DOE include, but are not limited to, identifying root causes to quality or production problems, identifying optimized design and process settings, achieving robust designs, and generating predictive math models that describe physical system behavior. This competency-based web seminar utilizes a blend of reading, discussion and hands-on to help you learn the requirements and pre-work necessary prior to DOE execution, how to select the appropriate designed experiment to run, DOE execution, and analysis of DOE results.

This session will cover recent developments in the field of automotive cybersecurity. Cybersecurity, within the context of road vehicles, is the protection of vehicular electronic systems, communication networks, control algorithms, software, transportation system users, and underlying data from malicious attacks, damage, unauthorized access, or manipulation. Topics may include design-for-security best practices for embedded and distributed automotive control systems; evolution of vehicular network architectures to better manage remote and proximity cybersecurity threats; emerging intrusion detection and response methods; and cybersecurity intelligence and information sharing best practices and stakeholder collaboration.
