Ford Online Courses

Ford Motor Company and SAE International have joined forces to provide a series of Ford's online training courses to automotive engineers worldwide. Ford and SAE International are offering six popular online courses on powertrain and problem-solving topics as a way to extend Ford engineering knowledge across the global industry.

While certain Ford proprietary information has been removed from the courses, they contain essentially the same content that engineers from Ford and select suppliers have benefitted from taking. Titles include:

Global 8D (G8D) is a disciplined process developed by Ford Motor Company to help product development and manufacturing engineers identify and solve problems. Solving problems results in efficient, as well as effective, resolution to 'root causes' of customer satisfaction issues, and helps reduce warranty costs. With this 12-hour online course, you will learn the methods and tools used to complete each step in the Ford Global 8D find-and-fix problem-solving process, including steps to define the problem, verify the root cause and escape point, and prevent occurrence.

Powertrain as-installed subsystems have a common fundamental function to perform in harmony, enabling the engine to power the vehicle and/or accessories. There is a need to avoid issues such as idle roughness and to realize these are system interaction issues. For example, modal alignment affects idle roughness, and improving idle roughness can affect fuel economy. This 8-hour Ford online course describes the function and major interfaces of powertrain as-installed driveline subsystems. It also discusses Design Verification System (DVS) metrics/performance requirements for each subsystem and how each subsystem affects other subsystems.

In addition to NVH, Driveability, and Shift Quality, Performance Feel is among the four Powertrain attributes that directly influence customer satisfaction. It is defined in terms of the availability of power to the end customer and is the customer perception of performance that includes the effects of vehicle acceleration, accelerator control characteristics, shift character, and sound quality. This 3.5-hour Ford online course is intended to increase the awareness of vehicle Performance Feel issues, target setting process, and the interactions and controls that affect Performance Feel.
