Aircraft accident and incident investigations should be supported by all engineering disciplines and departments involved with design, manufacturing, certification, and field operations. For individuals called upon to serve as advisors or technical representatives to official aircraft accident investigation (AAI) teams, an understanding of aircraft accident investigation and reconstruction methodology and processes is critical to success in this supportive role. This two-day seminar will begin with the basic requirements for conducting proper accident investigations, including investigative philosophies and procedures. The instructor will then guide participants through various data gathering methods and cover several specific types of accident investigations including those related to human factors, crashworthiness, inflight breakups, and mid-air collisions. Presentations are based on actual accidents and real-life investigation experiences and accident investigation case studies are integrated throughout the course to provide participants the knowledge required to effectively support aircraft accident investigation and reconstruction.

Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) is an enabling technology that has been widely adopted in the retail industry. The powers of RFID are acknowledged by many, but a lack of understanding of the technology, its limitations, and how to select the right plan for its target installation has slowed efforts to migrate the technology into the aerospace, space, and transportation industries. While RFID is not a new technology, the rate at which it has been integrated into the aerospace industry has been slow due to unique considerations regarding qualification, regulations, and safety. New Department of Defense (DoD) policies requiring an integrated materiel supply chain process that fully supports military operational requirements will further advance the use of RFID technologies. In addition the laws and regulations regulating its use are relevant for the proper application of this valuable technology. As industry strives for further cost reducing technologies, individuals will need to be able to identify, select, install, and operate the proper system for its application in these critical industry segments.

The rapidly evolving demand for cost reductions and shrinking budgets makes the application and use of automated processes within the aerospace and space industries a necessity. While some view aerospace automation as the solution to reducing costs, others view automation technologies and processes as something that should be avoided when possible. Misunderstandings and assumptions about these complex systems can result in the improper selection and application of these systems, often leading to undesirable interactions with other elements of the assembly process and potentially, project failure. This two-day seminar introduces participants to the critical components of automation necessary to be informed and knowledgeable about the acquisition, installation, and maintenance of automated systems for aerospace and space applications. The instructor will guide participants through the types, components, operation, application, cost benefits, laws, strengths, and limitations of automation.

The challenges associated with using composites as a replacement for aluminum reside primarily in the complex manufacturing processes and technologies for fabricating composite parts. The high cost of composites material and its manufacturing complexity have been inhibitors to the wide transfer of this technology to the non-aerospace market. The search for solutions to high manufacturing costs and efficient manufacturing processes have resulted in intense research by government, aerospace industry companies, and space agencies worldwide. This one day seminar will introduce participants to composites technologies that have applications beyond aerospace, including such markets as trucks, automobiles, and wind turbines. The instructor will define, illustrate, and describe the innovative manufacturing processes and technologies that have been used to solve the “composite challenge” for aerospace and space vehicles. The information presented in this seminar, derived from the successful application and demonstration of these technologies and processes on flight hardware, will serve to provide solutions for the manufacturing processes and technology challenges that have slowed the migration of this technology beyond the aerospace and space industries.

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. Specific guidance and tools to assist attendees in structuring design reviews tailored to their own company, specification, or contract requirements will also be provided. Material covered will be applicable to all types of development programs, ranging from components to complete vehicles, and for both OEMs and suppliers.

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. In addition, there will be a brief demonstration of computer software tools, which simplify the DFM+A analysis. Each participant will receive and use the hard-bound authoritative reference textbook, Product Design for Manufacture and Assembly, written by Geoffrey Boothroyd, Peter Dewhurst and Winston Knight.

Liquid fuel atomization and spray formation is the heart of the majority of stationary and mobile power generation machines that we rely on. This seminar focuses on the process of liquid atomization and spray formation and how it relates to fuel injection systems and emission of pollutants in modern engines. The seminar begins with background coverage of terminology, the purposes of liquid atomization and spray formation, and different designs of atomizers and nozzles employed in various industries. The focus is then directed to gasoline and diesel fuel injections, injector designs, and performance requirements for optimum engine operation with lowest possible emission of harmful pollutants. Based on the idea that knowledge of technical practices and advances in one area (i.e. diesel fuel injection) is beneficial to engineers in other areas (gasoline direct injection, rocket engines), this seminar takes an interdisciplinary approach. Attendees will understand the technology and logic behind different injector designs, and gain the knowledge to judge, adapt and transfer technology advances from one discipline to another.
