Advanced Manufacturing Training

Access the SAE International portfolio of timely, relevant, and high quality advanced manufacturing-related training. Taught by practicing professionals in the aerospace and automotive supply chain, courses and training help close the gap on what's missing in your workforce training. You should conduct your own investigation into their offerings, as SAE makes no representations regarding their suitability for any particular business need.

Common Training for DPRV Personnel
February 13-15, 2018 | Cerritos, California
SAE International | Seminar

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.

ARP4761 describes guidelines and methods for performing safety assessments. This recommended practice is associated with showing compliance with certification requirements (14CFR/CS Parts 23 and 25, section 1309) and assisting a company in meeting their own internal safety standards. The safety processes described are primarily associated with civil airborne equipment, but the processes and tools may be applied to many applications.

Design for Manufacture and Assembly (DFM/DFA)
March 5-6, 2018 | Toulouse, France
SAE International | Seminar

This seminar provides a functional understanding of the principles involved in conducting a Design for Manufacture/Design for Assembly study. DFM/DFA can support both manual and automated processes resulting in significant cost savings through simpler designs with fewer components. Related topics include workstation layouts, ergonomic considerations and errorproofing. Actual examples from the automotive industry are used to support the lecture and participants complete actual design efficiency using the DFM/DFA worksheet.

Understanding the FAA Aircraft Certification Process
March 12-13, 2018 | Warrendale, Pennsylvania
SAE International | Seminar

The task of certifying an aircraft or part can be overwhelming given the lengthy process and the many steps that are required. Understanding the process can greatly enhance the outcome and reduce unnecessary delays or frustrations.

SAE International | On Demand Course

Engineers and managers involved with product development are constantly challenged to reduce time to market, minimize warranty costs, and increase product quality. With less and less time for testing, the need for effective accelerated test procedures has never been greater.

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.
