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.

In order to reduce emissions, size and manufacturing cost, integrated exhaust manifold become popular in gasoline engine, especially in three-cylinder engine. Moreover, due to shorter length, lighter weight, and less component connections, the exhaust manifold and hot end durability will improve apparently. In this work, an advanced cylinder head with integrated exhaust manifold is in adopted in one three-cylinder turbo engine. Because of this integration characteristic, the gas retain in cylinder head longer and the temperature reach higher level than normal cylinder head, which will cause thermal fatigue failure more easily. To validate the exhaust manifold and hot end durability, series simulation and test validation work have been done. Firstly, overall steady state and transient temperature simulation was done for global model. The global model include cylinder head, block, turbocharger, and catalyst components.

The avionics hardware industry world-wide is now commonly required to follow DO-254 Design Assurance Guidance for Airborne Electronic Hardware for literally all phases of development: Safety, Requirements, Design, Logic Implementation, V&V, Quality Assurance, etc. The DO-254 standard is a companion to the software DO-178B standard; however, there are many differences between hardware and software which must be understood. This basic course introduces the intent of the DO-254 standard for commercial avionics hardware development.

Internal audits (a requirement of the AS9100 Rev D Standard) are intended to verify the compliance and effectiveness of the organization's quality management system. Internal auditors must be knowledgeable of these requirements and the expectations as identified in the standard. In addition, the audit requirements outlined in the AS9101 Standard have significantly changed the way auditors are expected to conduct audits in the aviation, space and defense industries.

The purpose of this paper is to demonstrate how advanced QMS systems, once the purview of large aerospace OEM’s, are now accessible to the small and medium supplier market through the Cloud. This is important, as these systems have proven track records of improving visibility in manufacturing and decreasing non-conformance errors that cause expensive defects. This, in turn, creates cost reductions that can be passed up the supply chain. Utilizing effective quality systems to manage manufacturing processes is a large feat. It often includes expensive IT costs for setting up servers, configuring systems, creating internal processes and then managing the enormous amounts of data that are fed into it. Historically, these systems are cost prohibitive for aerospace suppliers and small to medium sized businesses. Now, with the rise of Cloud-Based Software, QMS systems are available at a fraction of the cost.

With the increasing number of engines utilizing direct fuel injection and the upcoming more stringent emission legislation, regulating not only particulate mass (PM) but particulate number (PN), emissions of Direct Injection Spark Ignition Engines (DISI) are becoming of increasing concern. Gasoline Particle Filters (GPF) represent a novel potential measure to reduce particle number emissions from DISI engines and are particularly effective in view of the tight particle number limits requirements at cold start and over RDE. Even if some learning from the development and application of particulate filters to diesel engines can be transferred to gasoline engines, the particulate consistence, the mass to number ratio and the temperature as well as the gas composition of gasoline engines are significant different to diesel engines. Therefore, there is the need to study the application of particulate filters to gasoline engines carefully.

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.

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.

The landing gear system is a major and safety critical airframe system that needs to be integrated efficiently to meet the overall aircraft program goals of minimizing the penalties of weight, cost, dispatch reliability and maintenance. As the landing gear system business develops and large-scale teaming arrangements and acquisitions become increasingly common, it may be desirable in some instances to procure an Integrated Landing Gear System. This document provides guidelines and useful references for developing an integrated landing gear system for an aircraft. The document structure is divided into four sections: • Landing Gear System Configuration Requirements (Section 3) • Landing Gear System Functional Requirements (Section 4) • Landing Gear System Integrity Requirements (Section 5) • Landing Gear System Program Requirements (Section 6) The landing gear system encompasses all landing gear structural and subsystem elements.

Abstract Indian Automobile Industry has started using Six Sigma for Vehicle Design and process improvement to compete with Global competition. This Paper describes how the Tools of Six Sigma shall be used as an Effective Tool for both redefining the Design and the Process Improvement. This Paper talks on the evolution of DMADV approach in Indian Automobile Industry compared to the related Trends in Other Manufacturing Sectors. The Author describes how the warranty failures in Commercial Segment Vehicle Category which was the selling talk for the Competition was addressed in Leading Indian Automobile OEM. As this Failure was adversely impacting customer satisfaction and no solution seemed forthcoming, top Management indicated to use a radically different approach to solve the problem within a years’ time.
