The rapidly evolving demand for cost reductions and shrinking budgets makes the application and use of automated processes within the aerospace and space industries a necessity. While some view aerospace automation as the solution to reducing costs, others view automation technologies and processes as something that should be avoided when possible. Misunderstandings and assumptions about these complex systems can result in the improper selection and application of these systems, often leading to undesirable interactions with other elements of the assembly process and potentially, project failure. This two-day seminar introduces participants to the critical components of automation necessary to be informed and knowledgeable about the acquisition, installation, and maintenance of automated systems for aerospace and space applications. The instructor will guide participants through the types, components, operation, application, cost benefits, laws, strengths, and limitations of automation.

In the past few decades, product liability law has dramatically changed the manufacturer's outlook in the design and manufacture of product. The concept of safety and reliability has been altered from a purely engineering/manufacturing concept to a legal/manufacturing approach. This new approach requires an understanding of legal concepts as related to the manufacturing and design process. The engineer's role has shifted to include a safety audit analysis to minimize the existence of a product defect and/or to defend the product in a way that is responsive to the legal concerns. An overnight assignment will be made by the instructor. It will consist of problems drawn from actual cases and a group project that examines the design, instructions, and warnings of a product.

In today's economic environment, patents have become an increasingly important asset for both individuals and corporations. More and more, individuals and corporations, including those in the automotive and aerospace industries, are recognizing that revenue can be generated from their patent rights, whether those rights consist of a single patent, a family of patents or an entire portfolio. Indeed, some companies do not make or sell products; their entire revenue is derived from the licensing of their patents. Suffice it to say, licensing revenue has become a significant source of value in the global intellectual property economy. This web seminar will tell you what you need to know about U.S. patent litigation and will provide in-depth insights into the practical realities of patent disputes in the U.S. You will learn what's involved in a patent case, including the issues that the patent owner has to prove, e.g. infringement, and the issues the accused infringer has to prove, e.g., invalidity.
