This session covers subjective testing and analysis related to automotive noise and vibration, usually referred to as sound quality and vibration quality. The focus is on both subjective and objective tools and methods that can be used either to design sound or vibration quality into the automotive product, or to characterize and eliminate undesired sounds or vibrations.

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.

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.

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 two-hour live online course will provide insights into the ISO 9001 and AS9100 significant changes as they adopt the common management system structure.

One of the most important aspects of meeting emission standards is catalyst robustness. Emissions must be met at high mileage, termed “full useful life”, which is 150,000 mi for light and medium duty vehicles under Tier3/LEV3. Catalyst durability is application and system specific. Full useful life aging and correlations to accelerated aging schemes typically include both hydrothermal exposure and chemical poisoning. Robustness tests are designed to exceed the limits of a particular catalyst or filter material and test to failure. New aging schemes and robustness tests are needed when new technologies such as cold start traps for HC and NOx, gasoline particle filters, and SCR coated filters are incorporated into conventional three-way and diesel exhaust systems. This presentation will include a summary of recent emission certifications and publications by various vehicle manufacturers, aging and robustness testing of conventional exhaust systems, as well as a look into the durability of future emission control technologies.

Accelerated aging of automotive gasoline emissions catalysts has been performed on bench engines for decades. The EPA regulations include an accelerated aging cycle called the Standard Bench Cycle (SBC) that is modeled on the RAT-A cycle developed by GM Corp. and published in 1988. However, this cycle cannot be used for diesel aftertreatment components because it is based on stoichiometric operation, whereas diesel engines typically operate under excess air (lean) conditions. The necessity for accelerated aging cycles for diesel emissions systems can be illustrated by considering that the full useful life requirement in the United States for heavy-duty on-highway trucks is 435,000 miles, and off-road applications may be 8,000 hours. Aging under normal operating conditions is excessively time-consuming and expensive. This need was recognized, and the DAAAC Protocol™ developed to provide accelerated aging cycles for the vast majority of diesel emissions system applications. Although the DAAAC Protocol™ was developed for heavy-duty applications, there are no reasons not to utilize it for light-duty applications as well.

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. This three-day internal auditor training program is designed to provide potential and existing internal auditors with the knowledge necessary to understand and successfully audit an organization against AS9100 Rev C: Quality Management Systems - Requirements for Aviation, Space and Defense Organizations.

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.

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.

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 session is intended to include papers that will discuss and promote the recent advances in the modeling, analysis, and validation of commercial vehicle chassis, suspension, and tire modeling and simulation. Topics include, but are not limited to: commercial vehicle dynamics; chassis control devices such as ABS, traction control, yaw/roll stability control, and potentially the interplay with suspension control; chassis modeling and simulation to study and resolve issues pertaining to ride comfort, crash/deformation, and safety structure; suspension modeling and simulation studies covering passive and active control methodologies; and tires which would cover new and/or improved modeling techniques. Authors are also encouraged to submit papers that specifically discuss new and recent advances in the validation of their modeling and simulation activities.
