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.

Preventing future problems and troubleshooting existing problems in today's stamping plants requires greater stamping process knowledge. The link between inputs and outputs isn't as clear as many think, increasing the need for detailed understanding of the variables involved. This course discusses the key inputs and outputs associated with sheet metal stamping, including important elements for controlling the process and making it more robust. The course reviews sheet metal characteristics and their application, especially from a formability standpoint, using many automotive-related examples.

Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) is an enabling technology that has been widely adopted in the retail industry. The powers of RFID are acknowledged by many, but a lack of understanding of the technology, its limitations, and how to select the right plan for its target installation has slowed efforts to migrate the technology into the aerospace, space, and transportation industries. While RFID is not a new technology, the rate at which it has been integrated into the aerospace industry has been slow due to unique considerations regarding qualification, regulations, and safety.

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.

The application of Artificial Intelligence (AI) in automotive industry can dramatically reshape the industry. In past decades, many Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) applied neural network and pattern recognition technologies to power train calibration, emission prediction and virtual sensor development. The AI application is mostly focused on reducing product development and validation cost. AI technologies in these applications demonstrate certain cost-saving benefits, but are far from disruptive effect. The disruptive impact can be realized when AI application finally bring cost-saving benefits directly to end users. For example, automation of vehicle or machine operation can dramatically improve the efficiency. However, there is still a gap between the current technologies and the one that can fully enable the vehicle or machine intelligence including reasoning, knowledge, planning and self-learning.

Dimensional Variation Analysis (DVA) is a decision-making methodology for tolerance analysis, and is employed to evaluate assembly variations and identify problems in manufacturing assembly processes at early stages of design. In this study, the impact of component tolerances on manufacturing and assembly process variations is presented on a case study. The case study includes the alignment analysis between crankshaft and input shaft for clutch systems. The impact of component tolerances on axial alignment measurements in regard to these applications is discussed. The study shows that when combined with effective tolerance combinations, Variation Simulation Analysis (VSA) facilitate operational visibility; thus improve quality, reduce manufacturing cost, and enable reduction of production release time. The case study presents the impact of component tolerances at two levels: 1. Pre-Design, 2. Optimized Design

Cost reduction and cost competitiveness has been emerged as a major strategic tool to an enterprise used to fight for survival as well as maintain sustainable growth. Maximization of value creation through simultaneously enriching the Planet, People and the Economy should be the key drivers for cost reduction strategy in the business. The main objective of this paper is to explain the Process & Principles of Cost Reduction in technology transfer to Low Cost emerging economies to achieve Sustainable cost reduction and creating a culture of cost consciousness throughout the organization. DivgiWarner has designed, developed and been practices the unique process of cost reduction through various tools as, 1. Value Analysis and Value Engineering 2. Cost reduction through productivity improvement 3. Supply Chain Management ( SCM) 4. Lean Manufacturing 5. Total Quality Management (TQM) 6. Control over fixed cost 7. Working capital and funds flow management 8. Inventory management 9.

The use of composites in aircraft structure has been increasing and has reached a point with the 787 where 50% of the plane by weight is composites. Although the use of composites enables less part count and fewer fastener holes, there are still fastener holes, especially where composite structure is attached to metallic structure. This, along with the desire to keep the cost of manufacturing low means that ways of drilling this structure efficiently and effectively are required. This paper looks at the challenges one faces when drilling composite and composite-metal structure and then reviews the strategies developed over the years to effectively deal with those challenges.

As noise abatement becomes an increasingly important issue in the commercial aviation industry, aircraft companies have found it necessary to decrease the DB levels of their aircraft by using sound absorption technology (acoustic panels) on their engine nacelles. Acoustic panels are being used on the intake cowling, thrust reverse system, and other places on the engine nacelle where noise abatement technology could help lower the DB level of a commercial aircraft during takeoff and landing. Fabrication of acoustic panels is somewhat difficult as these parts require thousands of close tolerance spaced holes that allow sound to be absorbed by the sandwich panel. This presentation will discuss acoustic panel technology, an evaluation process that was conducted to select a manufacturing process for acoustic panels, noted scalability of the process across multiple configurations, and performance enhancements that have been undertaken over the course of multiple programs
