In the aerospace industry, delegated product release is a process whereby a supplier has been provided the authority to act on behalf of a delegating organization to verify and release products without additional oversight from that delegating organization. Currently, each of these delegating organizations manages and conducts a unique training program for individuals responsible for their product release overcheck process. For suppliers producing products for multiple delegating organizations, each must then manage the multiple training requirements. The delegating organizations, recognizing there is commonality among the various training programs, have come together to consolidate their training into a single, common training standard.

CMU NextManufacturing Center | On Demand Course

An introductory review of the electron beam metal process and the Arcam S12 equipment will be provided. The basic principles of materials selection, powder spreading and process control will be discussed. The course includes eight hours of on-site instruction scheduled as four hours on each of two consecutive days as well as the production of three standard parts using a design chosen by CMU.

CMU NextManufacturing Center | On Demand Course

An introductory review of the laser sintering process and the EOS M290 equipment will be provided. The basic principles of materials selection, powder spreading and process control will be discussed. The course includes eight hours of on-site instruction scheduled as four hours on each of two consecutive days as well as the production of standard parts using a design chosen by CMU.

CMU NextManufacturing Center | On Demand Course

An understanding of the Arcam electron beam melting (EBM) metal process sufficient to allow the submission of a buildable part design to CMU is assumed. The participant-specified part design must be submitted in advance for review. Checking of the provided part design for its ability to be built will be done by CMU in preparation for the on-site sessions. The course includes 8 hours of on-site instruction scheduled as 4 hours on each of two consecutive days as well as the production of one participant-specified part using the participant-specified design.

Design for Manufacturing and Assembly (DFM+A), pioneered by Boothroyd and Dewhurst, has been used by many companies around the world to develop creative product designs that use optimal manufacturing and assembly processes. Correctly applied, DFM+A analysis leads to significant reductions in production cost, without compromising product time-to-market goals, functionality, quality, serviceability, or other attributes. In this two-day seminar, you will not only learn the Boothroyd Dewhurst Method, you will actually apply it to your own product design!

Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) is an enabling technology that has been widely adopted in the retail industry. The powers of RFID are acknowledged by many, but a lack of understanding of the technology, its limitations, and how to select the right plan for its target installation has slowed efforts to migrate the technology into the aerospace, space, and transportation industries. While RFID is not a new technology, the rate at which it has been integrated into the aerospace industry has been slow due to unique considerations regarding qualification, regulations, and safety.

Additive manufacturing (AM), with origins in the 1980s, has only more recently emerged as a manufacturing process of choice for functional part production, adding to the suite of choices a designer has available when designing a part for manufacturing. Like other traditional processes like casting and machining, AM has its set of constraints. An added layer of complexity comes from the fact that there are several different AM processes, and some of the design constraints are process-specific. On the other hand, AM offers a range of opportunities in design freedom and mass customization as well as in cost and lead time reduction in some cases. Today, it is essential for designers to embrace AM as a possible manufacturing method to ensure their products are competitive and to unlock the design innovation that AM enables.

Many companies are starting to recognize the benefits additive manufacturing (AM) offers in terms of speed, simplicity, reliability, and cost. Additive manufacturing is a process in which a three-dimensional computer model design is built into a physical object by joining thin layers of material. AM is a versatile field that encompasses a variety of methods, materials, and applications.
