Risk Management Throughout the Automotive Development Process

2019-11-04
Jon Quigley discusses the importance of this seminar. Automotive projects continue to grow in complexity. Studies provide a glimpse into the attributes of product development projects that have a high likelihood of failure. Knowing these attributes, the approach to the project can be structured to reduce the risks. For example, the scope of the project may already place the project at risk. Understanding the risks associated with the scope enables you to either reconsider the scope or work out strategies that will eliminate or at least mitigate the risks.

Application Development of Electric Vehicles and Hybrid Electric Vehicles Balancing Economic Objectives and Technical Requirements

2019-10-29
This course is offered in China only. More and more stringent emission and fuel consumption regulations are pushing the automotive industry towards electrified powertrain and electrified vehicles. This is particularly evident in China, where there is an increased demand for electric (EV) and hybrid electric vehicles (HEV). Infrastructure is being built across the country for convenient charging. It must now be determined how to meet the technical targets for EV/HEV regulations under economic constraints and how to best develop the major ePowertrain components (battery and motor).

Validating Requirements and Improving Specifications with Telematics Data

2019-06-19
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.
