One of the biggest challenges for the Product Development Engineers is to have a clear understanding of the Quality Principles and Disciplines they should follow while they are engineering. In general, the current Product Development System guides of the Automakers companies are mostly focused on provide guidance for the Engineers on the following areas: Design Efficiency; Design Rules for Product Robustness; Design Validation; Product Reliability; Testing Procedures. The introduction of a new/advanced technology system alone does not mean low incidence of customer complaints. The only way to get that is plan/execute Consumer Driven Design with excellence. Global Vehicles are more sensitive to Quality since they must satisfy diverse cultural customers without compromise reliability. When a new vehicle is being developed to be sold in many markets around the world – Global Product - this problem is even bigger. Different markets mean different customer expectations.

In automotive manufacturing, MQL (Minimum Quantity Lubricant) machining has been implemented on multi-axis CNC Machining Centers. In MQL machining, since there is no flood coolant, small quantities of coolant through spindle-tool is used at targeted cutting zones. However, a challenge that MQL machining faces is significant thermal growth of machine components (spindle, column, fixture etc) that must be appropriately addressed in order to achieve quality with tight tolerances. A strategy adopted by CNC OEMs is to measure the thermal growth and offset it during machining (machine thermal compensation). A gage bore is mounted in the machine fixture and its position measured using a probe. Required offsets are then calculated and applied for subsequent machining. Different OEMs use different methods for this gage bore-probe based referencing. It is imperative that this compensation be done correctly for it directly impacts quality.

Integration of a new, complex technology which crosses several powertrain subsystem boundaries (and thereby involves multiple organizations), without introducing inadvertent failure modes, can be a difficult task. This paper illustrates an approach to addressing this task at a system level using an example new technology. In product development activities involving primarily reuse of known technologies, perhaps with minor improvements, organizational and subsystem boundaries are generally clear. Interfaces are well established and responsibilities for failure mode avoidance are generally known. Implementation of a new technology which involves multiple parts of the organization, however, presents unique challenges to failure mode avoidance. The example technology primarily impacts the exhaust system, the powertrain cooling system, and the powertrain control system. It can affect engine operation, emissions, and performance.

Abstract In current automotive industry, the necessity of providing quick warm up of the cabin during extreme cold conditions becomes more challenging to the engineers. A Trade-off between development time, cost and desired performance has to be achieved for deciding the right combination of HVAC (Heating ventilating air-conditioning) components to meet the customer satisfaction. In the HVAC, heater system plays a major role during winter condition to provide passenger comforts as well as to clear windshield defogging/deicing. The heater system consists of heater core, engine coolant as inner medium and air as outer medium. The coolant is circulated by engine coolant/water pump carrying heat from engine and flows across the heater core. The HVAC blower provides air to the cabin by taking heat from the heater core through floor duct systems thus warm up the cabin.

The main function of mobile air conditioning system in a vehicle is to provide the thermal comfort to the occupants sitting inside the vehicle at all environmental conditions. Passenger thermal comfort is mainly influenced by the inside cabin temperature and airflow flows through the duct system. The function of ducts is to get the sufficient airflow from the HVAC system and distribute the airflow evenly throughout the cabin. The main focus for all OEMs is to optimize the design of the duct system and satisfy the target requirements such as airflow, velocity and temperature. In this paper, the focus is to optimize the rear passenger floor duct system to meet the target requirements through design for six sigma (DFSS) methodology. Normally floor duct design is evaluated by the target airflow, velocity and temperature achieved at passenger leg locations.

Abstract The implementation of electronic shifters (e-shifter) for automatic transmissions in vehicles has created many new opportunities for the customer facing transmission interface and in-vehicle packaging. E-shifters have become popular in recent years as their smaller physical size leads to packaging advantages, they reduce the mass of the automatic transmission shift system, they are easier to install during vehicle assembly, and act as an enabler for autonomous driving. A button-style e-shifter has the ability to create a unique customer interface to the automatic transmission, as it is very different from the conventional column lever or linear console shifter. In addition to this, a button-style e-shifter can free the center console of valuable package space for other customer-facing functions, such as storage bins and Human-Machine Interface controllers.

Hardness measurements are used as a quality control check of the consistency of formulation and processing of brake linings. Gogan hardness is nondestructive (the penetrator causes shallow surface deformation.). Gogan hardness method alone does not show anything about a lining’s ability to develop friction or to resist fade when used as a friction element in brakes. The hardness and the range of hardness are peculiar to each formulation, thickness, and contour; therefore, the acceptable values and ranges must be established for each formulation and part configuration by the manufacturer.

Specific gravity is a nondestructive test used as a quality control check of the consistency of formulation and processing of brake lining. The specific gravity and the range of specific gravity are peculiar to each formulation and, therefore, the acceptable values or range must be established for each formulation by the manufacturer. Specific gravity alone shows nothing about a materials in use performance. The specific gravity of sintered metal powder friction materials, particularly those which have steel backing members, is usually determined somewhat differently. Reference ASTM B 376. Purpose To establish a uniform procedure for determining the specific gravity of brake friction material.
