Engineers are taught to create designs that meet customer specifications. When creating these designs, the focus is usually on the nominal values rather than variation. Robustness refers to creating designs that are insensitive to variability in the inputs. Much of the literature on robustness is dedicated to experimental techniques, particularly Taguchi techniques, which advocate using experiments with replications to estimate variation. This course presents mathematical formulas based on derivatives to determine system variation based on input variation and knowledge of the engineering function.

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.

While the basics of position are covered in a standard Geometric Dimensioning & Tolerancing (GD&T) course, and sometimes a lone example of composite position is given, those discussions often overlook the variations allowed that enable more accurate control based on part function. This advanced web seminar will clarify the proper use of “double-decker” position controls in GD&T. There are two distinct types: composite position (one symbol) and two single-segment position controls (two symbols). These are commonly used to locate patterns of features (bolt circles, etc.), but they are rarely taught in any depth.

Engines can and do experience failures in the field in a variety of equipment, vehicles, and applications. On occasion, a single vehicle type or equipment family will even experience multiple engine failures leading to the inevitable need to determine what the most likely cause of one or all of those failures was. This comprehensive seminar introduces participants to the methods and techniques used to determine the most likely cause of an individual engine or group of engine failures in the field.

While the topic of profile is covered in a basic Geometric Dimensioning & Tolerancing (GD&T) course, those discussions often ignore the variations allowed with these symbols that enable them to be used in complex ways. This advanced web seminar will clarify the proper use of the profile tolerances in GD&T and uncover the nuances of these two symbols. Since profile of a surface is arguably the most powerful GD&T symbol, its full potential will be explored. It can be used to control size, form, orientation, and location and its relationship to datums can be varied.

While the basics of datums are covered in a standard Geometric Dimensioning & Tolerancing (GD&T) course, those discussions often overlook the variations that enable datums to be used in complex ways. This advanced course will detail the proper use of datums, showing their full potential to make your drawings as effective as possible. Most people who use GD&T are familiar with traditional datums derived from flat surfaces, and have adequate knowledge of the principle of establishing 3-2-1 contact points.

Finite Element Analysis (FEA) has been used by engineers as a design tool in new product development since the early 1990's. Until recently, most FEA applications have been limited to static analysis due to the cost and complexity of advanced types of analyses. Progress in the commercial FEA software and in computing hardware has now made it practical to use advanced types as an everyday design tool of design engineers. In addition, competitive pressures and quality requirements demand a more in-depth understanding of product behavior under real life loading conditions.

Note: Last day of class ends at approximately 12:30 pm In today’s highly competitive and liability minded environment, Design Reviews (DR) are a must for all major mobility industries such as Automotive, DOD, Aerospace, Agriculture, Recreation, Marine and Rail. While Design Reviews are becoming increasingly important in product liability litigation, they also serve as an effective way to transfer organizational best practices for specific concerns and issues.

Commercial vehicle aerodynamics and fuel economy are greatly affected by transient and interfering flows. As the aerodynamic sophistication of commercial vehicles increase the importance of these phenomena in vehicle design will increase. Specific topics to be discussed are guidelines and methods for the modeling and simulation of these effects in vehicle design, experimental evaluation and the operational performance of commercial vehicles.

For aerodynamic technology to mature it is critical that the use of aerodynamic tools is based on critical governing aerodynamic and fluid dynamic criteria. In aerodynamics the most critical criteria is Reynolds number. Specific topics to be discussed are guidance and methods for Reynolds number and boundary layer assessment, modeling and simulation for aerodynamic evaluation and operational performance of commercial vehicles.

To manage design complexity and deliver innovations while reducing development time and improving quality, companies are turning to math-based models and a process known as Model-Based Design. Engineers use an executable specification to iterate through design concepts for the system and/or embedded controls using simulation. The specification then serves as the basis for model-based early verification, in-the-loop testing, and production code generation.
