Engine Failure Investigation and Analysis

2020-07-29
Engine failures can occur in a variety of equipment, vehicles, and applications. On occasion, a single vehicle type or equipment family will even experience multiple engine failures leading to the inevitable need to determine what the most likely cause of one or all of those failures was. This comprehensive seminar introduces participants to the methods and techniques used to understand the types of variables and inputs that can affect engine reliability and then determine the most likely cause of an individual engine or group of engine failures in the field.

FEA Beyond Basics Nonlinear Analysis

2020-06-10
Finite Element Analysis (FEA) has been an indispensable tool for design simulation for several decades but this wide spread use has been limited to simple types of analyses. Relatively recently, more advanced analyses have given easy to use interfaces enabling design engineers to simulate problems formerly reserved for analysts. This three-session web seminar targets the FEA users who wish to explore those advanced analysis capabilities.

AS13004 Process Failure Mode and Effects Analysis (PFMEA) and Control Plans

2020-05-06
In the Aerospace Industry there is a growing focus on Defect Prevention to ensure that quality goals are met. Process Failure Mode & Effects Analysis (PFMEA) and Control Plan activities described in AS13004 are recognized as being one of the most effective, on the journey to Zero Defects. This two-day course is designed to explain the core tools of Process Flow Diagrams, Process Failure Mode & Effects Analysis (PFMEA) and Control Plans as described in AS13004. It will show the links to other quality tools such as Design FMEA, Characteristics Matrix and Measurement Systems Analysis (MSA).

Design and Process Failure Modes and Effects Analysis (FMEA)

2020-04-29
This seminar covers the five types of FMEAs with emphasis on constructing Design and Process FMEAs. Each column of the FMEA document will be clearly explained using an actual FMEA example. The course covers various methods for identifying failure modes, effects and causes with special attention given to severity, occurrence, and detection tables and how to develop effective recommended actions strategies. Throughout the class, participants will be involved in exercises/actual projects that demonstrate and incorporate direct application of learned principles.

Fundamentals and Applications of Electric Motors for Automotive Industries

2020-04-18
As the electrification of automobiles is on the rise, it is imperative that the capabilities and limits of the associated devices and systems be understood at a higher level than previously considered adequate. For example, the Tesla Model S has 62 electric motors while the Model X has 70! They propel the vehicle and provide comfort too. Their design must reflect the worst case operating scenarios, duty cycles, environment, country of use and its standards, etc.

Validating Requirements and Improving Specifications with Telematics Data

2020-04-07
Field failures cause high warranty expenses, perhaps the highest quality cost. Failures occur when new designs are introduced, existing products are sold in new markets, and product specifications don’t reflect actual product usage. Any mistake in product specifications affects the entire product development process and cascades through the supply chain. New product requirements are developed using prior requirements, rely on customer surveys, use “expert” opinion, or are the result of compromises to meet timing or management direction. The resulting requirements may be excessive or insufficient.
