Since 1992, Caterpillar has invested millions of dollars to purchase CAD software, and spends nearly $2M per year keeping its engineers up-to-date, via instructor lead training (ILT), as new enhancements are introduced. Periodic upgrades to the software also require huge resource (people, costs) commitments for the planning and execution of the training requirements required for a large global workforce. This paper will examine gaps uncovered in the efficiency and effectiveness of the current training process, and the cultural change required as a result of switching from an instructor led environment to a completely web-based solution, which, once deployed, had promised to change the way Caterpillar approached training for the future. The proposed change promised to improve human resource capability by utilizing new technological capabilities, and resulted in improvements in organizational capabilities as well.

There has been a rapid increase in popularity of multipurpose All-terrain vehicles (ATV) across the globe over the past few years. SAE BAJA event gives student-community an opportunity to delve deeper into the nitty-gritty of designing a single seat, four-wheeled off road vehicle. The design and development methodology presented in this paper is useful in conceptualization of an ATV for SAE BAJA event. The vehicle is divided into various subsystems including chassis, suspension, drive train, steering, and braking system. Further these subsystems are designed and comprehensively analyzed in software like SolidWorks, ANSYS, WINGEO and MS-Excel. The 3-D model of roll cage is designed in SolidWorks and analyzed in ANSYS 9.0 for front, rear and side impact along with front and side roll-over conditions. Special case of wheel bump is also analyzed. Weight, wall thickness and bending strength of tubing used for roll cage are comprehensively studied.

Abstract Emissions from motor vehicles have been a subject of concern in urban areas, as great amounts of population have been permanently exposed to large amounts of pollutants, with intrinsic adverse health effects. In this context, in the last two decades, stringent emissions standards have been developed to control the maximum emission limits of the so called regulated pollutants. This continuous reduction of emission targets has imposed a great effort to engine and vehicle manufacturer in the development of technological solutions for emission limits compliance, which can be done by reducing engine-out emissions through improvements in combustion process and fuel management system, as well as by using aftertreatment devices in the exhaust system.

Abstract Public transport has been considered the preferred strategy to reduce congestion and pollution from urban road traffic. For low to medium capacity, bus systems are considered the most affordable and flexible mode. Currently, diesel based systems still dominate transit bus market, due to their high productivity, low deployment costs, technological maturity, operational reliability and flexibility (high daily ranges, fast refuelling and no infrastructure requirement along the routes). However, although some important improvements in engine technology and aftertreatment devices, enforced by emission standards improvements (Euro VI, US 2010 and those related), have been achieved, it is well known that there is a limit to cleaning exhaust diesel buses exhaust. In this context, transit authorities and operators have been under pressure to shift for more environmental friendly technologies.

Abstract Current massive urbanization process concentrates high amount of population and impose an increased demand on transport systems. In this context, transit bus system plays an important role, as the most dynamic and less capital intensive transit option available. At the same time, it is strongly dependant on fossil fuels, predominantly diesel fuel, with its intrinsic polluting and greenhouse (climate change) effects. This has boosted research and investments for alternative and renewable fuels. One solution currently receiving widespread recognition is biogas use in transit bus fleets, as it allows the use of a renewable fuel, made from substrates derived basically from waste and sewage that otherwise would produce methane released to the atmosphere.

On-road emission measurements of 23 VN-trucks on a randomly chosen driving cycle, consisting of 10 miles two-lane and 8 miles four-lane road, showed tailpipe NOx emissions on fleet average of 0.96 g/bhp-hr, or 1.06 g/bhp-hr when including the time the exhaust gas temperature was below 200°C. Complementary measurements in a SET-cycle (13 point OICA -cycle) on a chassis dynamometer showed a tailpipe emission of 0.008 g PM per bhp-hr. Moreover, cost analysis show that the diesel fuel consumption remains unchanged whether the truck running on ULSD is equipped with a Combined Exhaust gas AfterTreatment System (CEATS) installed or not.

What are some of the market influences changing the earthmoving equipment requirements as we face the next decade? How does the shifting age, immigration status and minority pattern affect the new entrants into the labor force? Earthmoving equipment users have expectations that a machine will be more productive, reliable and utilitarian. Earthmoving equipment must be simple to repair, troubleshooting convenience must be built-in from the start of design. Machines must be designed with reduced operating efforts and special fail-safe protectors provided for machines being operated by people without the background and experience to know when a machine is about to fail. Users want the machine service (lubrication, filter change and fluid checks) to be performed from ground level. A reduction in the number of service points and frequency of service is desired.

Abstract American industry seems to have entered the decade keenly aware of the strategic importance of satisfied customers. Yet, satisfying the customer on a daily basis is much easier to discuss than it is to accomplish. With customer satisfaction as the goal, companies are quickly learning the important lesson that it all begins with product development. At Case, we are attempting to “weave” the critical areas of marketing, engineering, manufacturing, and sales and service into a “quilt” of customer satisfaction. Satisfying the customer, we are learning, has many faces. From market research into the needs and wants of the customer, to concept and feasibility analysis, to engineering and prototypes, to manufacturing and sales, Case is learning the key lessons of quality improvement and team deployment.

When faced with an engine failure, the initial problem to solve is how to repair it. This translates into the choices of; in-house or external repair. With current labor rates as they are, most operators cannot afford to rebuild an engine themselves. Parts acquisition, shop space, technical knowledge, tooling and the fact that in-house rebuilds do not carry a warranty all act to sway the operator to external sources for assistance. An additional, but equal, concern is how much will the engine cost to repair. The body of this paper will discuss the technology involved in producing remanufactured engines. Topics covered are cost analysis, remanufacture specifications and process and fleet operational logistics using remanufactured engines.

The authors relate their experience in teaching a senior level Computer-Aided Design (CAD) course in Mechanical Engineering using advanced Computer-Aided Engineering software. The course balances the theory and the need for hands-on experience with commercial CAD software in solving practical design problems. Students are given assignments ranging from simple 3D modeling exercises and 2D finite element analyses to an optimization project requiring more advanced 3D modeling and analysis. Where possible, analytical solutions are found and compared to the finite element results. The software allows the students to explore much more complex problems than would have otherwise been possible.

The contemporary context of mechanical design engineering undergraduate education is briefly reviewed. A three-course sequence for mechanical design education is proposed which meets the general needs of undergraduate students while providing a strong background for future automotive engineers. A somewhat traditional machine design course with sections on design background, power transmission, and structural design is followed by a course in modern intermediate machine design which covers recent advances in machine design and significant gaps in the traditional design curriculum. A capstone design project course in which the students work in teams completes the sequence. Some suggestions for course content and conduct are presented.

One of the major goals in the design of the new Ford Aeromax and Louisville heavy truck product line was to achieve competitive leadership in visibility. Market research found that visibility was an important issue to the heavy truck driver. Visibility is defined as both direct and indirect (i.e., the driver's ability to see with and without the use of supplemental vision devices such as mirrors) and both interior and exterior. The scope of this paper includes the work which was accomplished in evaluating direct and indirect exterior visibility and the resulting vehicle design which achieved Ford's leadership goals. Poor weather visibility and interior vision are beyond the scope of this paper. Polar Plots were the method of choice in the Aeromax/Louisville visibility studies. Industry acceptance of these techniques has been established in the recent approval of SAE J1750, “Evaluating the Truck Driver's Viewing Environment”.

In order for a company to be the best that it can be, it must regularly reevaluate its position in all areas. An area of utmost importance, which is often neglected due to the pressures of the production schedule, is training and development of the company's most valuable resource, its people. If a company is to be successful in the uncertain future of today's economy, its people must be ready to meet the many challenges of tomorrow, head on. In 1987, Deere & Company, Management Education & Training Department, developed a seminar that redefines the elementary concepts of the customer/supplier relationship. These concepts relate directly to the INTERNAL customer/supplier relationship that exists in our factories. This stimulating, thought provoking four hourseminar is called CUSTOMER SERVICE: A STRATEGY FOR THE FUTURE. (Deere & Co., 1987) This seminar helps the participants better understand their role in making the day-to-day operations of the company run smoothly.

This paper will identify the role of the engineer in the Total Quality Management movement. In the latter 1980's quality and reliability were identified as being a result of good business practices, rather than only being effected by manufacturing and design systems. In the past, engineers were given total design responsibility with little or no control once the design left their hands. Product cost analysis recently identified approximately 65% of product cost comes from areas which the engineer cannot control. This paper will show how the skills of the engineer are being integrated into the total business environment through a structured planning system, resulting in products and services with customer focus. Quality and reliability in the 1990's will be a result of this well defined and applied business system.

A study examining the problems and benefits derived from the development of a fourth generation CD-ROM learning programme for the truck sector. Discussion will consider two key criteria: The vision Intuitive learning programmes based on real world imagery and expectations. The techniques used to retain the learner's interest, and facilitate personal motivation. The development process of a learning programme which uses previously un-attempted levels of imagery, and the promotion of active learning and learning by association. The key to the development will be the design of a minimal text interface termed ‘The Virtual Truck’, which uses real world visual prompts to guide the learner. This constitutes a platform onto which learning materials are integrated to present a “packaged” learning product, as appropriate to specific market requirements.
