Improved understanding and control of ignition and thereby combustion are critical in dealing with the problems of pollutants formation, engine performance, and fuel economy. This seminar will provide you with basic knowledge and recent advances in combustion-initiation (ignition) issues to more intelligently evaluate and harness their potentials. Thermodynamic and fluid mechanical properties of the unburned charge near the spark plug and at the time of ignition strongly affect the quality of the combustion and therefore the emission of the pollutants from the engine. Furthermore, a weak ignition limits engine performance and drivability. The so-called cyclic variability, which affects and bounds the lean and knock limits of an engine design is to a great degree influenced by the ignition system. Equally important, the ignition system can and is being used to provide local in-cylinder information on air-fuel ratio, misfire, knock, and mass fraction burned in each individual cylinder. Hence, great potential exists for applications of this information for individual cylinder control strategy to attain a more fuel efficient and environmentally compatible engine.

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.

The sound package materials for vehicle noise control seminar provides a detail and thorough analysis of three different classes of acoustical materials – namely absorbers, barriers, and dampers, how they are different from each other, and acoustical properties that materials should possess for optimum vehicle noise control. The seminar addresses new advances in acoustical materials, primarily in absorption materials that impact the vehicle acoustics. The seminar covers ways to evaluate the acoustical performance of these materials using different test methods, including material, component, and vehicle level measurements. The two day seminar starts with the fundamentals of NVH and sound quality related to sound package materials and discusses the importance of various noise sources that impact the development of sound package treatments in a vehicle. Note: A similar course is available live online or on demand.

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.
