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.

Manufacturing process improvements often impact on factory layouts. The resultant redesign of the shop floor is frequently modelled and simulated to identify optimal layouts. This modelling has often been done in discrete event simulation (DES) packages. Traditionally, once optimized layouts have been identified in DES, these are remodeled in 3D CAD systems to allow the facilities to be visualized. However there are disconnects in this process:- there is no easy way of showing the impact of the process on the built environment, or of the built environment on the process. Developments in simulation connectivity and data capture mean that these disconnects are being removed. New software interoperability allows DES models to create 3D virtual environments on the fly which can then be visualized in immersive environments. This, combined with laser scanning techniques, means that legacy environments can be remodeled and quickly remodeled at relatively low cost and in short timescales.

Augmented Reality (AR) is a maturing technology that is able to create a more meaningful and useful work environment for deskless workers in a production environment. As augmented reality evolves, transition success lies in matching valuable use-cases with the readiness of the technology. Recognizing the power of today’s AR, as well as its limitations, allows us to provide mobile AR solutions to complex industrial challenges in areas of work where the current state of the technology can provide the most benefit.

As virtual reality and augmented reality are growing in popularity it is important to not forget about the user, Jaguar LandRover always strive to Create experiences customers love for life, this crosses over into the development process where we focus on the user experience not the technology to enhance the designers and engineer immersion experience to enable them to create the vehicle of the future. This presentation will cover how AR VR are being used, how it makes a different to quality, time, and demonstrate that JLR are commented to continued investment in this area.

DCNS Group is positioned as prime contractor and integrator for whole warships in naval defense sector. It designs, manufactures and provides through life support for the most innovative surface naval systems and submarines on the market along with the associated critical systems. DCNS Group is also positioned as a major actor in marine renewable energies and continues its deployment on the civil nuclear energy and marine energy and infrastructure service markets. The DCNS Group is testing and implementing the tools of Virtual Reality in these processes for more than 15 years. Initially, Virtual Reality was used to support the design offices in their design of military vessels. Sales teams used it to live to Customers the experience of their ship before it was built. With the continuous development of hardware and software solutions, new uses are now possible. DCNS takes advantage of these new opportunities to further improve its processes and productivity.

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.

Fuel economy and CO2 regulations world-wide demand for a strict but clear average fleet fuel reduction target in the coming decade. A massive uptake of light to mild hybridization is therefor required. In this presentation we compare existing and new 12V and 48V solutions on functionality, cost, performance and off course the fuel economy improvements. Special focus is given on new powerful solutions using combinations of 48V battery- and kinetic energy (flywheel) storage. It is shown that such low voltage dual storage solutions compete with high voltage full hybrid performances at a fraction of the cost.

An infinitely variable transmission (IVT) utilizing oscillating torque generated from the centrifugal forces of rotating masses to transmit mechanical power is presented. The objectives of the presentation are to show recent design improvements, explain the mechanics, and show that this IVT is viable for a large array of automotive, commercial, and military vehicle applications. Recent design improvements enable the IVT to scale in size to any vehicle application including earth movers and main battle tanks while maintaining high efficiency. This IVT controls torque amplitude rather than speed ratio as in traditional designs. This unique approach combines the high mechanical efficiency of fixed gear ratio transmission with the high engine efficiency obtained using a Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) in a lightweight, rugged, and high-torque package.
