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.

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.

Quiet comfort and smooth operation are must-have standard features on today’s vehicles, regardless of brand, size or price. Less noise, vibration and harshness are critical design attributes that impact perceived quality and, ultimately, owner loyalty. The most effective NVH control strategies address both tactile and audible qualities, starting with the vehicle overall and including the sum of its parts. Both dry-film and paste-like noise-damping lubricants work well for stifling even the smallest squeaks, faintest rattles and near-imperceptible buzzing vibrations. Silicone adhesives and sealants strengthen assemblies. Silicone and fluorosilicone engineered elastomers dampen and isolate vibrations from engine mounts to exhaust hangers. Effective NVH control is challenging.

Abstract A modern definition of quality control and improvement is the reduction of variability in processes and products. The reduced variability can be directly translated into lower costs, better functions and fewer repairs. However, the final quality of processes and products is sometimes derived from other measured variables through some implicit or explicit functional relationships. Sometimes, a tiny uncertainty in a variable can produce a huge uncertainty in a derived quantity. Therefore, the propagation of uncertainty needs to be understood and the individual variables need to be well controlled. More importantly, the critical factors that affect quality the most should be identified and thoroughly investigated. Design of experiments and statistical control plays central roles in finding root cause of failure, reduction of variability and quality improvement. In this paper, the theories on quality control and improvement are reviewed first with the emphasis on statistical data analysis and uncertainty propagation.

In this paper a design methodology for automotive heat exchangers has been applied which brings robustness into the design process and helps to optimize the design goals: as to maintain an optimal coolant temperature and to limit the vehicle underhood air temperature within a tolerable limit. The most influential design factors for the heat exchangers which affect the goals have been identified with that process. The paper summarizes the optimization steps necessary to meet the optimal functional goals for the vehicle as mentioned above. Taguchi's [1] Design for Six Sigma (DFSS) methods have been employed to conduct this analysis in a robust way.

This document will primarily address intrinsic reliability of electronic components for use in automotive electronics. Where practical, methods of extrinsic reliability detection and prevention will also be addressed. The current handbook primarily focuses on integrated circuit subjects, but can easily be adapted for use in discrete or passive device qualification with the generation of a list of failure mechanisms relevant to those components. Semiconductor device qualification is the main scope of the current handbook. Other procedures addressing extrinsic defects are particularly mentioned in the monitoring chapter. Striving for the target of Zero Defects in component manufacturing and product use it is strongly recommended to apply this handbook. If it gets adopted as a standard, the term “shall” will represent a binding requirement. This document does not relieve the supplier of the responsibility to assure that a product meets the complete set of its requirements.

Supply Chain Risk Management (SCRM), defined in this guideline, can be applied proactively for the protection of all procured products and services; both flying and non-flying through all levels of the supply chain. The guideline focuses on Quality as a key risk assessment factor taking into account elements from all aspects of the business having a direct link to global quality management. This concept/model is shown in Figure 1. While traditional "small q " Quality is a key element to be assessed, from a company business point of view, other elements play an important part in minimizing risk. This guideline defines such risk factors for consideration. SCRM as a business protection tool will be most effective when used to identify, and reduce risks when generating new business with new and existing suppliers. However, the tools and techniques described hereafter can also be applied to evaluate the existing supply chain network and determine the level of control required. The SCRM can be applied by merging identified risk factors associated with procured products or services and the supplier itself with the target for overall supplier quality risk management (see Section 6).
