Creating and Managing a Product Compliance Program

Around the world, and more often than not, government bodies require formal certification of products. As product developers expand into new markets, they will be confronted with new standards, regulations, and customer expectations that may require new compliance processes. A properly run compliance program improves your product"s quality and safety, broadens your product"s market, ensures compliance with regulations and laws, and helps provide protection from future product liability issues. This two-day seminar presents a process development methodology that can be used repeatedly as new compliance requirements emerge.

Automated Systems for Aerospace and Space Applications

The rapidly evolving demand for cost reductions and shrinking budgets makes the application and use of automated processes within the aerospace and space industries a necessity. While some view aerospace automation as the solution to reducing costs, others view automation technologies and processes as something that should be avoided when possible. Misunderstandings and assumptions about these complex systems can result in the improper selection and application of these systems, often leading to undesirable interactions with other elements of the assembly process and potentially, project failure.

Patent Litigation Risk Management Toolkit

In recent years, total annual United States patent grants have increased to over 300,000, while patent infringement lawsuit filings have exceeded 6,000 per year. Only a small fraction of granted patents ever end up in litigation. Of the many causes for the disparity is the growing awareness and sensitivity of companies to patent infringement risk management practices. This course addresses a number of those practices (and tools for implementing the practices), placing them into context, and providing a practical overview for how to implement them to help reduce the prospect of patent infringement litigation.

Patent Litigation in the U.S. What You Need to Know

In today's economic environment, patents have become an increasingly important asset for both individuals and corporations. More and more, individuals and corporations, including those in the automotive and aerospace industries, are recognizing the economic importance of patent rights, whether those rights consist of a single patent, a family of patents or an entire portfolio. Indeed, some companies do not make or sell products; their entire revenue is derived from the licensing of their patents. Suffice it to say, licensing revenue has become a significant source of value in the global intellectual property economy.

Quality Function Deployment - A Tool for Generating Customer Excitement

Quality Function Deployment (QFD) is a cross functional, team based methodology recognized as a key technique in improving new product/service design and development. It is especially useful to translate both spoken and unspoken customer needs into a prioritized set of customer product or service characteristics in a language understandable to an organization"s engineering design group. And, by using a cascading approach, it ensures that the design intent is maintained throughout the production planning process and that the design intent is traceable both up and down the product/process planning effort.

Keys to Creating a Cybersecurity Process from the J3061 Process Framework

Connected vehicles are increasingly seen as a potential target for cybersecurity attacks. A key differentiator for the automotive industry is the use of cyber-physical systems, where a successful cybersecurity attack could affect physical entities. Often involving embedded electronics and real time control, these systems require different solutions in addition to established IT security principles and reactive responses to threats. Cybersecurity needs to be designed and built into cyber-physical systems throughout the development lifecycle to provide defense in depth.

Performing a Cybersecurity Threat Analysis and Risk Assessment

2018-12-17
SAE J3061 sets out a recommended cybersecurity engineering process framework for organizations developing cyber physical systems. One of the recommendations of this framework is to carry out a threat analysis and risk assessment early in the product development. A threat analysis identifies and models the relevant threats against assets, and a risk assessment classifies the impact and likelihood associated with each threat. The approach enables the prioritization of risks and appropriate risk treatment measures to be determined in subsequent development phases.

Principled Negotiation

2018-12-13
This highly interactive workshop focuses training on negotiation strategy and skills. This is not the manipulative, win-lose negotiation approach frequently taught today, where the winner eventually spends time and effort protecting his negotiated advantage against erosion, while the loser continually exploits loopholes and shortcuts to recover lost ground. Traditional negotiation is a wary dance based on mistrust, the true cost of which is lost in quality and brain fatigue - usually for someone other than the negotiator - over the life of the agreement.
