Most muffler design in the automotive industry is accomplished by using "cut-and-try" methods that rely on what has worked in the past and/or extensive full-scale testing on engines for validation. New computer software aimed at muffler design can shorten the design cycle and yield more effective results. This four hour seminar provides an introduction to the behavior of mufflers and silencers including a description of the two-port approach to muffler design. This seminar covers the acoustic simulation of muffler and silencer systems and the use of experimental methods to measure muffler performance.

This session provides a good overview of recent innovations to SEA modeling techniques. SEA models can be used alone or together with hybrid analytical or experimental techniques to establish good comparative NVH predictions at the earliest stage of the vehicle design process. The papers of this session will describe recent advances and / or validations of SEA theory, applications, or use in conjunction with hybrid techniques for high- and mid-frequency NVH predictions.

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.

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.

Workflow knowledge comprises both explicit, verbalizable knowledge and implicit knowledge, which is acquired through practice. Learning a complex workflow therefore benefits from training with a permanent corrective. Augmented Reality manuals that display instructive step-by-step information directly into the user's field of view provide an intuitive and provably effective learning environment.

Standard paper or electronic forms of work instructions have been used to standardize manual processes since the first days of manufacturing, and are still in wide use today in factories around the world. As augmented reality (AR) technology has continued to advance at a rapid pace, it is opening new doors to drive higher levels of quality, productivity, and training efficiency into worldwide manufacturing processes through its unique ability to place the right information, at the right place, and at the right time.

Discuss and demonstrate the advances in Man Wearable AR/VR systems that have been under development at Lockheed Martin. The trials and successes of designing, prototyping and manufacturing plastic Asymmetric lens for AR displays that provide Wide Field of views using COTS displays. The second display takes advantage of a specially designed Fresnel lens set to create a 170 degree VR display. These display systems designs are focused on Military Training requirements but should not be limited in their use.

During development phase of new vehicles prototypes are traditionally assembled manually by operators. Two of the main challenges for workers are to position flexible parts (such as brake tubes, cables and wiring) at exactly the right position and to verify if all parts are present during the assembly. To complete this process, operators are currently using drawings to compare the real prototype with the virtual CAD Data. One issue is that no measurement tools can verify exactly the position of flexible parts within a reasonable time frame. Augmented Reality solutions stand to both accelerate detection of construction and design errors while helping operators to place components or flexible parts at the exact position required. By overlaying the virtual CAD 3-D model on the real prototype with a high accuracy, operators are able to quickly compare the potential points of failure and detect if any components are missing. Furthermore the system allows designers to preview or evaluate design alternatives in real scale while minimizing the production of physical prototypes.

Augmented reality has tremendous value in many aspects of life. Applications in a traditional manufacturing facility bring with it opportunities but also unique challenges. We will explore the value which AR can expose and open up to improve productivity and cost controls. The presentation will show how AR technologies can be used for work cell planning and layout, dynamic work instruction presentation to operators, and mistake proofing assistance.

Virtual Reality systems are quickly hitting the consumer market at a significantly reduced price point. This will have an impact across many industries, including the mobility market. More than just a reduced cost implication, we will examine the benefits the newly accessible technology will have on everyday operations where usage will be at the desk and in the field versus the lab, product design where lower-cost technology does not compromise quality, and hands-on employee training that can be conducted in boundaryless classrooms.
