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.

Electric drives are found in hybrid, plug-in hybrid, and hydrogen fuel cell vehicles, as well as battery electric vehicles. More than two million hybrid vehicles worldwide utilize electric drive components, and battery technology has matured enough to enable major manufacturers to develop light-duty and commercial electric vehicles for mass production and sale beginning in 2010-2012. It is also likely that many conventional vehicles will incorporate some form of idle-stop or stop-start system comprised of a low-output electric drive, as an integral part of efforts to meet U.S. CAFE fuel economy standards and EU CO2 emission requirements.

The engine control module (ECM, or on-board computer) is the tool used to control the fuel injection rate, fuel injection timing, ignition timing, rate of exhaust gas recirculation (EGR), and other functions. The task of "programming" the ECM is much easier for a race engine than for a production engine because the calibration engineer does not need to be concerned about emissions: EGR, keeping the exhaust catalyst "happy", etc. In this e-Seminar, Professor Ron Matthews provides a practical introduction to ECMs, including the uses for the various sensors.

Tough times require searching for things that we can change and making them better. But so often problems are solved with 'band-aids' and not root cause solutions. This approach is getting too expensive and at best only helps companies tread water. To combat these issues and adopt a fresh approach, teams can use the methods and tools of Root Cause Problem Solving to first view problems as opportunities for improvement, identify root causes and implement solutions to prevent recurrence. Benefits include improved quality and customer satisfaction, reduced operation costs, and greater employee knowledge of work processes.

Turbocharging is already a key part of heavy duty diesel engine technology. However, the need to meet emissions regulations is rapidly driving the use of turbo diesel and turbo gasoline engines for passenger vehicles. Turbocharged diesel engines improve the fuel economy of baseline gasoline engine powered passenger vehicles by 30-50%. Turbocharging is critical for diesel engine performance and for emissions control through a well designed exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) system. In gasoline engines, turbocharging enables downsizing which improves fuel economy by 5-20%.

Stopping Distance is one of the most common metrics of a vehicle's braking performance and one of the most critical attributes of accident prevention and minimization. The measurements are used within the development of the vehicle and are a critical aspect of accident prevention, accident reconstruction, and overall occupant and pedestrian safety management. While the results of this metric are published in a variety of sources, the factors that differentiate vehicle performance, vehicle dynamics, and calculation of the braking performance required to achieve desired performance are not widely available.

Finite Element Analysis (FEA) has been used by engineers as a design tool in new product development since the early 1990's. Until recently, most FEA applications have been limited to static analysis due to the cost and complexity of advanced types of analyses. Progress in the commercial FEA software and in computing hardware has now made it practical to use advanced types as an everyday design tool of design engineers. In addition, competitive pressures and quality requirements demand a more in-depth understanding of product behavior under real life loading conditions.
