Case Studies in Downstream Consumption of 3D Models

This session will highlight a key aspect of 3D Model Based Enterprises - downstream consumption of 3D models. 3D models have been developed and used by design and engineering organizations for years. The supplier presenters, both MBE team members, will share the results of their projects to adapt their internal processes to pull information directly from 3D models rather than drawings. They will highlight some of the pitfalls to be avoided, and some of the benefits they are now realizing.

Automotive Standard Update

In this session, IATF representatives will explain the recently announced changes to the structure of the new international automotive QMS standard, IATF16949:2016. They will highlight the new and revised "shall" requirements in each clause and share the IATF's rationale for revising the requirements. This session will also provide an overview of the IATF's two-year project to develop the new standard.

Certification Rules Update

In this session, representatives from the IATF will explain the revisions to the "Rules for achieving and maintaining IATF recognition". The 5th Edition of the Rules will be applicable to the new QMS standard IATF16949:2016. Changes to the Rules include those that impact the CB auditors and those that impact the sites wanting to become certified.

State of 3D MBE in the Automotive Industry

This session will identify the current depth of 3D Model Based Enterprise (3D MBE) within the automotive industry. AIAG recently partnered with other global organizations, JAMA and GALIA, to conduct a 3D MBE survey of automotive OEMs and suppliers. The purpose of this survey was to develop a better understanding of current 3D MBE status in North America, Japan, and Europe. This presentation will highlight the findings of that survey.

Transition Timing Update

As announced previously by the IATF, all sites currently certified to ISO/TS16949:2009 must transition to the new standard by September 14, 2018. As just announced, any audits taking place after October 1, 2017 must be to the new standard. Other requirements and constraints on the transition process will be shared with the attendees.

The Brilliant Factory: Optimize, Predict, and Prevent

The Internet of Things concepts are driving the monitoring and capture of an ever increasing volume of data. How can that data be leveraged for product quality? How can the volume of data be managed efficiently and effectively to optimize product quality in a distributed environment. Predictive analytics is being used by all manufacturers of all sizes to address product quality through data mining, including supervised and unsupervised machine learning applied to a multitude of data sources. Multiple use cases in a variety of industries will be discussed.

Strategic Error Proofing - The Success Every Time Method

The foundation approach to quality planning is centered in Failure Mode Effects Analysis (FMEA). FMEA's are logical and measurable and that is the strength of the FMEA methodology. The shortcoming of FMEA's is they are chasing the infinite number of problem possibilities. Since all companies are in the pursuit of ZERO DEFECTS, FMEA thinking will not take us to Zero Defects. People do not have enough time, money or imagination to list all possible Failure Modes. The Success Every Time (SET) is focused on doing things right and helping operators confirm that they did the job correctly. SET is a measurable and teachable method to help engineers drive error proofing that is simple and effective. The presentation will show many devices created using the SET method.

It's Time To Get Serious About Process Innovation

It's time to get serious about process innovation. While today's hyper-competitive world demands innovation in nearly every aspect of the business, process innovation offers some compelling advantages over product innovation and accordingly makes it a great place to start developing your innovation capability. First and foremost, the probability of success is much greater because the only person or organization that has to buy into your innovation is you. With customer facing product and process innovation, even the best ideas still require the buy-in of your customers. With process innovation, that's not so. And if you developed the innovation internally, you've probably already done 75% of the work necessary to get the buy-in from the rest of the organization. The return on investment in process innovation is also easier to estimate beforehand and measure afterwards. When innovation is used to take elevate an existing process to the next level (jumping to the next S-curve), you know what it was costing you before, and after. With product innovation, you can never be quite sure unless you are introducing entirely new products. And estimating the potential for new product or service innovation is really a crap shoot. Process innovation generally delivers results faster than product or service innovation, too. And finally, all of the new skills the organization will develop by focusing on process innovation will translate into product and service innovation. They're really two birds of the same feather-one is just easier to get started with, than the other.

Analyzing Data for Systems Vs. Components

We address a widespread problem in analyzing repairs & maintenance data in the automotive sector: To rapidly identify the causes of system-level failures due to unexpected interactions among components that form a system (rather than just the component-level issues). Our approach automates analysis or "mining" of maintenance datasets generated by technicians who perform repairs. Data may show the problems are not in specific components (which may perform according to specifications); instead, the system-level problems may lead to failures - sometimes catastrophic and tragic. Not every issue can be foreseen at design & development stages, both due to cost factors and the multiplicity of interactions in a system; recourse must be taken to manage problems seen after the fact of design & manufacture, and by way of corrective actions. The faster a problem and its root cause(s) are identified, the sooner a fix can be placed to avoid more malfunctioning units and associated costs. Our analyses may lead to root cause identification and solutions which ultimately result in engineering design modifications.

Problem Solving Panel Discussion

In AIAG's 2014 industry survey, Problem Solving was identified as the number one concern for both OEM's and suppliers. Based on this, AIAG launched an initiative to dig deeper into the underlying issues causing lack of problem solving effectiveness across the industry. A panel of industry professionals will discuss the technical and cultural issues and what can be done, and what should be done, to address the performance gap on this critical skill set.

Reducing Product Lifecycle Management System Reaction Time

A common goal for many automotive companies is to implement a product lifecycle management (PLM) system to link the design process to the manufacture of a product. The resulting business structure leads to better collaboration and connectivity between support groups and ultimately allows the company to reduce new product launch times. Paccar Engine Company implemented a PLM system when it opened in 2007. Through numerous product launches, limitations with the PLM system were identified that made it difficult to react quickly to process change needs. A manufacturing process change as simple as relocating a bolt rundown to another station could take as long as 4 weeks to implement because it was subjected to the entire PLM cycle. This reaction time severely limited the ability to adapt to customer desires or product improvements. A design for six sigma project was initiated to redesign the way the IT business systems interacted with the assembly line to better suit the needs of a more flexible manufacturing facility. This case study reviews the challenges discovered, obstacles removed, and improvements implemented in the product lifecycle management system to achieve a sub 24 hour reaction time for a manufacturing process change.
