Design of Experiments (DOE) is a methodology that can be effective for general problem-solving, as well as for improving or optimizing product design and manufacturing processes. Specific applications of DOE include identifying proper design dimensions and tolerances, achieving robust designs, generating predictive math models that describe physical system behavior, and determining ideal manufacturing settings. This seminar utilizes hands-on activities to help you learn the criteria for running a DOE, the requirements and pre-work necessary prior to DOE execution, and how to select the appropriate designed experiment type to run. You will experience setting up, running, and analyzing the results of simple-to-intermediate complexity, Full Factorial, Partial Factorial, and Response Surface experiments utilizing manual methods as well as a hands-on computer tool that facilitates experimental design and data analysis. You will also receive an overview of Robust DOE, including the Taguchi DOE Method.

RMS (Reliability-Maintainability-Safety-Supportability) engineering is emerging as the newest discipline in product development due to new credible, accurate, quantitative methods. Weibull Analysis is foremost among these new tools. New and advanced Weibull techniques are a significant improvement over the original Weibull approach. This workshop, originally developed by Dr. Bob Abernethy, presents special methods developed for these data problems, such as Weibayes, with actual case studies in addition to the latest techniques in SuperSMITH® Weibull for risk forecasts with renewal and optimal component replacement. Class work is used to reinforce key concepts, lectures are based on actual case studies, and personal computers and hands-on experiments are used to analyze dozens of Weibull & Log Normal problems. Students will be fully capable of performing basic and advanced RMS Engineering analysis with their own software on completion of the workshop. Attendees will receive the entire SuperSMITH® package - a complete self-study course and combined software package containing: SuperSMITH® Weibull, SuperSMITH® Visual, The New Weibull Handbook® - 5th Edition and the PlayTIMETM Tutorial Booklet.

One of the main advantages of the precision forging process is the reduction in material consumption due to the achievement of close tolerances and the reduction of machining requirements to meet final component specifications. However, to achieve these results comes at a cost. One of the primary issues with precision forgingis the reduction in life of the tools used in the forming process. Manufacturers can mitigate some of these concerns by better understanding how tools can be designed specifically for the precision forging process and how personnel can effectively apply precision forging techniques. This two day seminar will introduce participants to tooling design practices that can be successfully applied to precision forging methods. The instructor will guide participants through critical die design requirements to optimize die life. Participants will be provided detailed information related to inspection and calibration techniques and requirements. The instructor will then provide participants the requirements of an effective quality control system, including the rigorous requirements for aerospace and medical parts manufacturing.

Through the years there has been a significant and increasing volume of fraudulent and counterfeit electronic parts entering the aerospace supply chain. Left undetected, these parts can pose significant performance, reliability, and safety risks. In response to these threats, the SAE AS6081 Counterfeit Electronic Parts Avoidance – Distributors standard was developed to provide uniform requirements, practices, and methods to mitigate the risk of electronics distributors purchasing and supplying these counterfeit electronic parts throughout the aerospace supply chain. This two-day seminar will begin with background information on the proliferation of counterfeit electronics and the development of a consensus standard for the procurement, detection, reporting, and disposition of these parts. The instructor will then guide participants through a comprehensive overview of the requirements of AS6081, including detailed information on the certification scheme and implementation strategies. The information presented in this seminar will assist participants and their organizations in establishing and maintaining a counterfeit electronic parts avoidance program that is in conformance with the requirements of the standard and also serves as an integral component of a comprehensive quality management system.

Counterfeit electronic parts have been found in almost every sector of the electronics industry and continue to be an increasing threat to electronic hardware. This threat poses significant performance, reliability and safety risks. Aerospace industry organizations, in particular, must produce and continually improve safe and reliable products that meet or exceed customer and regulatory authority requirements. The SAE AS5553 standard was created in response to the significant and increasing volume of counterfeit electronic parts entering the aerospace supply chain and standardizes requirements, practices and methods for counterfeit parts risk mitigation. The resulting document presents solutions to address counterfeit electronic parts issues across a large cross-section of the electronics industry. This comprehensive one-day seminar introduces participants to AS5553 Rev A and specifically addresses counterfeit part risk mitigation methods in electronic design and parts management, supplier management, procurement, part verification, material control, and response strategies when suspect or confirmed counterfeit parts are discovered.

In a global economy, aviation, space and defense organizations are presented the challenge of producing and delivering safe and reliable products across a wide range of customer requirements and expectations. In an effort to address diverse quality requirements and expectations while also reducing costs throughout the supply chain, the AS9100 family of standards was developed by international aerospace industry representatives to standardize international aerospace quality management system requirements. This three-hour webinar will provide a starting point for participants to gain an overall understanding of AS9100:2009 (Rev. C). The instructor will provide AS9100 background, management principles, overview, and value-added implementation strategies.

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. This proven 8-step approach to problem solving will help improve operational and financial performance by identifying causes and implementing solutions to significant or recurring problems. This approach to problem solving is used by many major automotive manufacturers.

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 webinar 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.
