George Ringger will be the instructor for the November 16-18, 2015 offering of this seminar. Internal audits are a requirement of the AS9100 Rev C standard and one of the fundamental requirements of the internal audit program is to verify the compliance of the organization’s quality management system to the AS9100 standard. Internal auditors must be knowledgeable of these requirements and the expectations as identified in the standard. In addition, the requirements of AS9101Rev D have significantly changed the way audits are expected to be performed in the Aviation, Space and Defense industries.

Tough times require searching for things that we can change and making them better. But so often problems are solved with 'band-aids' and not root cause solutions. This approach is getting too expensive and at best only helps companies tread water. To combat these issues and adopt a fresh approach, teams can use the methods and tools of Root Cause Problem Solving to first view problems as opportunities for improvement, identify root causes and implement solutions to prevent recurrence. Benefits include improved quality and customer satisfaction, reduced operation costs, and greater employee knowledge of work processes.

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.

Cost-reduction and cost competitiveness have emerged as major strategic tools to an enterprise and are being used all over the world to fight for survival as well as maintain sustainable growth. Maximization of value-creation by enriching the planet, people and the economy should be the key drivers leading to cost-reduction strategies in any business. The main objectives of this paper are to explain the Processes and Principles of Cost-reduction in technology-transfer to low-cost emerging economies to achieve sustainable cost-reduction and create a culture of cost-consciousness throughout an organization. DivgiWarner has not only designed and developed but has also been practicing unique processes of cost-reduction utilizing 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 Costs 7.

With stringent emission regulations, many subsystems that abate engine tailpipe-out emission become necessary part for engines. With the increased levels of complexity, end users also require increased level of quality for modern engines. Among the spectrum of quality control methodologies, one extreme example is focused on very components’ quality to ensure the accumulative deviation is within predetermined limits. These measures tighten the component tolerance during manufacturing process and typically results in increased cost. Another extreme example is on the other side of the methodologies spectrum. The methodology is to tailor the engine calibration solution to offset the manufacturing difference. Although the tailored engine calibration solution reduces manufacturing cost for components, it increases the calibration and validation cost for engines. Given the cost and time constraints, system integration plays an important role in engine development.

Securing the desired durability of suspension components is one of the most important topics for the vehicle designers because these components undergo multiaxial variable amplitude loading in the vehicle. Leaf springs are essential for the suspension system of trucks and should be considered as a security relevant part in the product development phase. In order to guide the engineers in the design and testing department, a simulation method was developed as explained in the paper “Bakir, M., Siktas, M., and Atamer, S., "Comprehensive Durability Assessment of Leaf Springs with CAE Methods," SAE Technical Paper 2014-01-2297, 2014”. In this new study, the main aim is to present the validation of this newly developed CAE method for the durability of leaf springs depending on the results from testing and measurement in the rough road and test bench.

The Indian automotive sector is experiencing a major shift, focusing predominantly towards the levels of quality, reliability and comfort delivered to the customer. Since the entry of global players into the market, there is a rising demand for timely product launches with utmost priority to reliability. In any vehicle, suspension plays a critical role in transferring the road inputs onto the vehicle components, therefore, responsible for both ride comfort and load transfer. Engine mount, being an integral part of this system, takes care of isolating the inertial forces between the engine and the chassis. This project details on how testing can aid in reducing the launch time as well as ensuring desired degree of reliability. It proposes a methodology to formulate a life model for the engine mount considering various combinations of predictor parameters affecting its performance over its design life.

Cylinder deactivation (CDA) is an effective method to adjust the engine displacement for maximum output and improve fuel economy by adjusting the number of active cylinders in combustion engines. A Switching Roller Finger Follower (SRFF) is an economic solution for CDA that minimizes changes and preserves the overall width, height, or length of Dual Overhead Cam (DOHC) engines. The CDA SRFF provides the flexibility of either transferring or suppressing the camshaft movement to the valves influencing the engine performance and fuel economy by reducing the pumping losses. This paper addresses the performance and durability of the CDA SRFF system to meet the reliability for gasoline passenger car engines. Extensive tests were conducted to demonstrate the dynamic stability at high engine speeds and the system capacity of switching between high and low engine displacement within one camshaft revolution.

Abstract All around the world, steps are being taken to improve the quality of our environment. Prominent among these are the definition, implementation, and attainment of increasingly stringent emissions regulations for all types of engines, including off-highway diesels. These rigorous regulations have driven use of technologies like after-treatment, advanced air systems, and advanced fuel systems. Fuel dispensed off-highway is routinely and significantly dirtier than fuel from on-highway outlets. Furthermore, fuels used in developing countries can be up to 30 times dirtier than the average fuels in North America. Poor fuel cleanliness, coupled with the higher pressures and performance demands of modern fuel systems, create life challenges greater than encountered with cleaner fuels. This can result in costly disruption of operations, loss of productivity, and customer dissatisfaction in the off-highway market.

Bench testing is commonly used to construct fatigue design curves, which are used for the durability and reliability assessment of engineering components subjected to cyclic loading. Several criteria, such as R90C90 and R99C50, are widely used in automotive industry to construct fatigue design curves for a typical testing sample allocation, i.e. two stress/load levels and 6 data points at each stress/load levels. In order to reduce the test sample size and associated testing cost, recently, a Bayesian statistics based design curve construction method has been successfully developed. The Bayesian method is based on a large amount of reliable historical fatigue test data, the associated probabilistic distributions of the mean and standard deviation of the failure cycles, and an advanced acceptance-rejection resampling algorithm.
