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 & Quality Improvement: Increases in Material, Variable, and Plant costs are greatly impacting manufacturing companies’ bottom-line. The impact on bottom-line is so much that ‘Cost’ has quickly become the number one competitor for most manufacturers and consequently ‘Cost Reduction’ is one of the most challenging platforms today. Better quality means customer satisfaction which leads to business growth and customer loyalty.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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 web seminar will provide a starting point for participants to gain an overall understanding of AS9100:2009 (Rev. C).

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.

This paper describes the development of a semi-automated end-of-line driveline system balance tester for an automotive assembly plant. The overall objective was to provide final quality assurance for acceptable driveline noise and vibration refinement in a luxury performance vehicle. The problem to be solved was how to measure the driveline system unbalance within assembly plant constraints including cycle time, operator capability, and integration with a pre-existing vehicle roll test machine. Several challenging aspects of the tester design and development are presented and solutions to these challenges are addressed. Major design aspects addressed included non-contacting vibration sensing, data acquisition/processing system and vehicle position feedback . Development challenges addressed included interaction of engine and driveline vibration orders, flexible driveline coupling effects, tachometer positional reference error and vehicle-to-vehicle variation of influence coefficients

Automotive companies are looking into adding extra value to their vehicles by enhancing powertrain sound quality. The objective is to create a brand sound that is unique and preferred by their customers since quietness is not always the most desired characteristic, especially for high-performance products. This paper describes the process of developing a brand powertrain sound for a high-performance vehicle using the DFSS methodology. Initially the customer’s preferred sound was identified and analyzed. This was achieved by subjective evaluations through voice-of-customer clinics using vehicles of similar specifications. Objective data were acquired during several driving conditions. In order for the design process to be effective, it is very important to understand the relationship between subjective results and physical quantities of sound. Several sound quality metrics were calculated during the data analysis process.

Standard
AS9132B
This standard defines uniform quality and technical requirements relative to metallic parts marking performed using "data matrix symbology" within the aviation, space, and defense industry. ISO/IEC 16022 specifies general requirements (e.g., data character encodation, error correction rules, decoding algorithm). In addition to ISO/IEC 16022 specification, part identification with such symbology is subject to the requirements in this standard to ensure electronic reading of the symbol. The marking processes covered by this standard are as follows: - Dot Peening - Laser - Electro-Chemical Etching Further marking processes will be included, if required. Unless specified otherwise in the contractual business relationship, the company responsible for the design of the part shall determine the location of the data matrix marking. Symbol position should allow optimum illumination from all sides for readability. This standard does not specify information to be encoded.
