Seminars

SAE seminars are one to three-day short courses on a broad range of topics that address relevant technologies, engineering tools, and management techniques. All seminars are applications-oriented and emphasize an interactive, hands-on style to provide direct job-relevance.

Engineers teaching engineers is another key attribute of SAE Seminars. Whether they're practicing engineers, retired engineers, or university faculty, all instructors come to the classroom with content expertise, industry experience, and on-the-job know how.

You will also network with peers from leading companies in the United States and in many cases, from around the world. All courses include an extensive learning manual of slide reprints and course notes

All seminars are approved for IACET Continuing Education Units (CEUs) and for the professional engineer, Professional Development Hours (PDHs). Certain seminars are approved for Accreditation Commission for Traffic Accident Reconstruction (ACTAR) Continuing Education Units (CEUs).

The vehicle-terrain interaction in an off-road environment creates unique challenges for designers of both wheeled and tracked off-road vehicles. Not only should vehicle designers have a working knowledge of the fundamentals of on-road vehicle dynamics, they should also have the specialized knowledge of the vehicle dynamic characteristics found in construction, agriculture, and military off-road vehicles. This one-day seminar concentrates on the basics of off-highway trucks and the differences with their on-highway counterparts.

EDR’s are not new, but are becoming more prevalent in part due to a new federal regulation. 49 CFR, Part 563, which affects vehicles produced after September 30, 2012, will result in a standardized and publicly available EDR in 90% of new vehicles. Accident Reconstructionists frequently have trouble reconciling EDR data with other data sources, and improvements in ABS technology result in fewer tire marks visible at the scene of crashes to allow calculation of pre-crash speeds without an EDR.

A cheaper material really performs satisfactorily? What confidence do you have in the final decision that you make? This seminar will help individuals responsible for product or process development and testing to statistically assess the variation of the product or process performance and make effective decisions with confidence.

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. This course provides a practical introduction to ECMs, including the uses for the various sensors.

The key to a vehicle's overall operation is the superior, quality design of its major moving subsystems. Automotive gasoline and diesel fuel delivery systems in particular must be virtually malfunction free for all components for the entire vehicle prescribed service life. Fuel systems must be robust and precise enough to store and deliver the appropriate amount of fuel to power the engine. These stringent requirements necessitate a basic understanding of the subsystem working principles, functionalities and interrelated components.

Quality Function Deployment (QFD) is a cross functional, team based methodology recognized as a key technique in improving new product/service design and development. It is especially useful to translate both spoken and unspoken customer needs into a prioritized set of customer product or service characteristics in a language understandable to an organization’s engineering design group. And, by using a cascading approach, it ensures that the design intent is maintained throughout the production planning process and that the design intent is traceable both up and down the product/process planning effort.

Design of Experiments is a statistically based, structured approach to product or process improvement that will quickly yield significant increases in product quality and subsequent decreases in cost. Products and processes can be designed to function with less variation and with less sensitivity to environmental factors or customer usage. While still maintaining high quality from a customer's viewpoint, products and processes can utilize lower cost materials and methods. Specifications can be opened-up with wider tolerances while still maintaining high quality for customers.
