Design for Manufacturing and Assembly (DFM+A), pioneered by Boothroyd and Dewhurst, has been used by many companies around the world to develop creative product designs that use optimal manufacturing and assembly processes. Correctly applied, DFM+A analysis leads to significant reductions in production cost, without compromising product time-to-market goals, functionality, quality, serviceability, or other attributes. In this two-day seminar, you will not only learn the Boothroyd Dewhurst Method, you will actually apply it to your own product design! This seminar will include information on how DFM+A fits in with QFD, concurrent engineering, robust engineering, and other disciplines. In addition, there will be a brief demonstration of computer software tools, which simplify the DFM+A analysis. Each participant will receive and use the hard-bound authoritative reference textbook, Product Design for Manufacture and Assembly, written by Geoffrey Boothroyd, Peter Dewhurst and Winston Knight.

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. Common issues such as springback, dent resistance, and process differences among mild steel, high strength steel, bake hardenable steel, and aluminum are discussed. Stamping die types and functions, in particular the types of dies used in draw forming, are explained. Mechanical presses and lubrication are briefly discussed as other variables in the process. Other processes, including tube and sheet hydroforming, and progressive dies are covered in less detail.

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. It takes advantage of design, material and manufacturing experience using multiple CAD, CAE and CAO tools to reduce product design and development time and costs, as well as to reduce product mass and improve product performance. This three-session web seminar will offer information on how to design a concept model from a clean sheet using a holistic 3G design approach (ACP-3G), where material types and its properties (Grades and Gauges), Geometry (shape), and manufacturing process can work together for the optimum weight and performance.

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. In addition, key manufacturing areas including stamping and welding will be addressed to demonstrate the increased challenges as compared to lower strength steel grades. Troubleshooting of typical engineering and production problems will round out the seminar leaving attendees with tools to help design more robust engineering solutions to AHSS applications.

Welding is one of the most important and widely used of the joining processes, providing distinct advantages in mechanical performance, ease of implementation, cost and adaptability. This seminar will provide engineers with applicable knowledge related to metallurgy, stress analysis and welding processes which will enable them to consider design, analysis, implementation and inspection of welds for their respective products. The course will cover the fusion operation of welding involving casting, heat treatment and metallurgical processes as well as additional complexities such as residual stress and distortion, introduction of various defects and sensitivity of materials, considerations related to static strength, fatigue behavior and resistance to corrosion. The primary focus of the seminar will be arc welds, but there will also be discussion of other welding processes important to the mobility industry including resistance spot, laser and friction stir. The seminar will make extensive use of case studies and will discuss appropriate codes and standards.

Introduction & problem description Profoundly new commercial vehicle concepts for improved transport efficiency, better TCO and decreasing environmental impact are a key issue in current research. Although being showcased more and more as first concept studies and prototypes by OEMs these new concepts do hardly find their way into public traffic. Beside their non-conformance to today's legislation another reason is manufacturers being cautious and reserved when it comes to new concepts that require far-reaching changes in engineering and methods of production. In the context of sensitive markets manufactures can't afford low volume vehicle concepts that in addition include a lot of exclusive components and interfaces i.e. extra investments and engineering efforts. In order to pave the way for radical innovation in commercial vehicle concepts, manufacturers need to be able to analyze new concepts on their compatibility with the existing product portfolio and if necessary redesign their product architecture to avoid unmanageable overflow of variance.

The automotive industry needs for sustainable seating products which offer good climate performance and superior seating comfort. The safety requirement is always a concern for current seating systems. The life of the present seating system is low and absorbs moisture over a period of time which affects seat performance (cushioning effect). Recycling is one of the major concern as per as polyurethane (PU) is concern. This paper presents the development of an alternative material which is eco-friendly and light in weight. Thermoplastic materials were tried in place PU for many good reasons. The newly developed material is closed cell foam which has better tear and abrasion resistance. It doesn’t absorb water and has excellent weathering resistance. Also it has got better cushioning effect and available in various colours. Because of superior tear resistance, we can eliminate upholstery and reduce system level cost. The development involves testing and characterization of the materials, making of prototypes and validations.
