Introduction to the Automotive Ecosystem 

Screen Shot 2021-02-25 at 11.10.37 am

Corporations today are on-boarding new employees critical to their mission in supporting various industries. The ramp up of these individuals is necessary to quickly contribute to the core expertise of the

business. The challenge to corporations is¿ to introduce these individuals into a far more complex world, both external and internal to the enterprise.

The purpose of this course is to provide an overview of the Automotive Industry? Ecosystem,? describing its global dimension, impact on society, business dynamics, organizational structure, future trends, and the importance of the technical staffs inside automotive companies.

Recognizing the breadth of this industry, the course endeavors to provide the participant with a broad understanding of the workings of an automotive enterprise. It is designed to enable new employees to perform their job functions more successfully by knowing how their responsibilities fit into, contribute to, influence, and are influenced by all the elements in automobile ecosystem

Introduction to Design of Experiments (DOE) for Engineers

Design of Experiments (DOE) is a methodology that can be effective for general problem solving, as well as for improving or optimizing product design and manufacturing processes. Specific applications of DOE include, but are not limited to, identifying root causes to quality or production problems, identifying optimized design and process settings, achieving robust designs, and generating predictive math models that describe physical system behavior.

This introductory on-demand course provides an example scenario to give learners the opportunity to discover situations that may warrant a designed experiment. As the scenario is developed, the audience learns the DOE process steps and the definition of relevant terms. The topics covered include the benefits of conducting a DOE, DOE history, and the goals of different types of DOEs. Finally, examples of several success stories are provided to demonstrate the broad range of situations that have benefited from experimentation.

Introduction to FMEA: What, Why, When and How

Failure Mode and Effects Analysis (FMEA) is an essential part of any product design or redesign activity. FMEA is a proactive, quantitative, qualitative, step-by-step approach for identifying and analyzing all potential points of failure in any product or service. This team-based activity can dramatically improve product performance. It can also reduce manufacturing issues at the component, system, and processing level.

This module gives a high-level overview of FMEA facts: WHAT an FMEA is, WHY they are used, WHEN an FMEA is created, WHO is on the FMEA development team, and HOW the FMEA form is completed. The history of FMEAs, standards, and team responsibilities are also discussed.

All material is in conjunction with current industry standards, such as SAE J1739.

Introduction to Finite Element Analysis

Finite Element Analysis (FEA) is a computer-aided engineering (CAE) tool used to analyze how a design reacts under real-world conditions. Useful in structural, vibration, and thermal analysis, FEA has been widely implemented by automotive companies and is used by design engineers as a tool during the product development process. Design engineers analyze their own designs while they are still in the form of easily modifiable CAD models to allow for quick turnaround times and to ensure prompt implementation of analysis results in the design process. While FEA software is readily available, successful use of FEA as a design tool still requires an understanding of FEA basics.

This introduction to FEA will expose you to key concepts in FEA and give an overview of the FEA process, including the steps needed to conduct FEA, finite element types and orders, common assumptions that lead to serious errors in results, and areas you should be concerned with when discretizing a model. This SAE-produced course also includes an introduction to discretization error and convergence analysis and explains how they impact results in FEA projects.

Standardization in a Competitive Environment

Standards aren?t considered competitive tools by definition. However, through well-managed participation, standards can become significant competitive enablers as the role of standardization becomes more substantial within a company.

This on-demand course begins by providing a high-level review of how the standards world functions, including the definition of a standard, key participants in the development of a standard, and the typical standards development process. The course introduces the who, what, why, and how of standardization and explores how standards can be better utilized within organizations. The presentation also examines standards in the global marketplace, looks at the role of competition, competitiveness, and differentiation, and identifies strategic priorities related to standardization and standards, specifically related to supply chain and international trade agreements.

After introducing principles of standardization and discovering how they operate within a fictional company, this course will present a strategic approach for the management and utilization of standards within an organization. Techniques to effectively approach a standardization exercise, or to better understand standardization activities within a company will be offered.
