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.

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.

Advanced High Strength Steels (AHSS) are now commonly used in automotive body structural applications. The high strength of this grade classification is attractive to help reduce mass in the automotive body through reduction in thickness. Strength also supports improvements in safety requirements so that mass increases are minimized. In some specific grades of AHSS, energy absorption is possible in addition to the high strength. This course will review the definition and properties of AHSS and cover several common applications in automotive body structures.
