Presently, most of the companies have combination of process and product layout. Cellular manufacturing is a place where company has established one or more manufacturing cells. Due to competition, Automobile industries are changing existing plant layout to “Cellular Layout” in which manufacturing process is carried out by proper arrangement of machines. This research paper aims at the optimization of cellular manufacturing layout using: cell formation stage, cell layout stage. In the first stage, a heuristic based upon the material flow is developed, which allows the machines to be clustered more naturally. In the second stage, a genetic algorithm is used to optimize the machine layout within each cell, in which a previously defined material handling system is provided. This representation allows the design of the layout and aisle-structure simultaneously, and can be converted into a string representation adaptable by a genetic algorithm for optimization. The number of aisles in the optimized aisle-structure is also minimized.

This handbook is designed to assist program management and/or systems engineering management in managing the transition to lead-free (Pb-free) electronics to assure product reliability and performance.

Programs may inadvertently introduce Pb-free elements (including piece part finish, printed wiring board finish, or assembly solder) if careful coordination between buyer and supplier is not exercised. For example, piece part manufacturers may not always change part numbers to identify Pb-free finishes, especially if the previous tin-lead (Sn/Pb)-finished piece part has been discontinued. Detailed examination of piece parts and documents at receiving inspection while crucial, may not be sufficient to identify Pb-free piece parts.

Note: Pb-free technology can impact any program regardless of whether the program itself is exempt or bound by environmental regulations. The industry conversion to Pb-free solder technology may affect an aerospace program in one or both of the following ways: 1.

The new Supplying PSA Peugeot Citroën analyses the ways in which PSA Peugeot Citroën is moving forward in terms of models and technology, including what issues are affecting the OEM in terms of supply and manufacturing. The report is based on interviews with key purchasing executives. Although PSA is being negatively affected by the economic situation in Europe, the carmaker is set to kick off an aggressive period of growth in China, still the largest and strongest new car market in the world. This is backed by joint-ventures with local partners Dongfeng and Chang An, both in terms of production and also in R&D. Advanced build and powertrain solutions will serve as the basis of a series of new vehicles, the development of which will be supported by the EUR3 billion of liquidity generated by direct company investment and new share offerings. How this plays out over the remainder of the decade and into the 2020s will be critical to the future of PSA. Should these strategies deliver success, then the OEM is virtually guaranteed a continued place at the top table of global car manufacturers.

The increasingly stringent emissions regulations faced by vehicle manufacturers have been driving the growth of more fuel-efficient conventionally powered vehicles. The ability of stop-start systems to improve vehicle carbon emissions by between 5% and 15% at very low additional cost has seen a dramatic increase in the proportion of vehicles being fitted with such systems. And this growth in demand for stop-start systems is set to increase substantially, especially in Europe, North America, China and Japan. The exclusive new report from ABOUT Automotive reviews the key market drivers for stop-start engine technology for the ‘micro hybrid’ segment and conventional internal combustion engine (ICE) vehicle applications. It sets out the market drivers and forecasts for the global stop-start systems market through to 2020 and reviews the technical advances made in stop-start technology, including the competing technologies, and the latest developments. It also profiles a number of major suppliers of stop-start systems.

Abstract Tubular stabilizer bar for commercial vehicle is developed using advanced high strength steel material. Tubular section is proposed to replace the existing solid section. The tubular design is validated by component simulation using ANSYS Software. The tubes are then manufactured of the required size. The bend tool is designed to suit the size of the profile stabilizer bar and the prototypes are made using the tube bending machine. The strength of the tubular stabilizer is increased by using robotic induction hardening system. The tubular stabilizer bar is tested for fatigue load using Instron actuators. Higher weight reduction is achieved by replacing the existing solid stabilizer bar with the tubular stabilizer bar.

Today’s designers seek to integrate sensor technology, electronic and mechatronic systems in progressively introducing Electric Power Steering (EPS) systems. However, from a customer perspective on the one hand steering is one of the most visible or tangible aspects of vehicle quality in driving when quality is compromised (through NVH issues), while on the other hand, when executed well, a steering system is all but transparent to the driver. To a number of commentators and OEMs ‘steering feel’ has become termed as contributing to the essential ‘DNA” of the vehicle, and it is therefore an essential aspect of competitive advantage or position. This report examines steering feel and the increasing effect of vehicle electrification, and looks at steering and chassis performance. It also considers the key drivers including fuel efficiency and CO2 emissions, steering design, materials considerations and the packaging dilemma. Furthermore the report looks at the latest steering system trends, in particular electrically power assisted steering (EPAS), electro-hydraulic power steering (EHPS), electric power steering (EPS), active front steering (AFS), four-wheel steering, steer-by-wire, automated parking and NVH reduction.
