GEIASTD0006A
This standard defines the requirements for fully replacing undesirable surface finishes using solder dip. Requirements for qualifying and testing the refinished piece parts are also included. This standard covers the replacement of pure tin and Pb-free tin alloy finishes with SnPb finishes. This dipping is different from dipping to within some distance of the body for the purposes of solderability; solder dipping for purposes other than full replacement of pure tin and other Pb-free tin alloy finishes are beyond the scope of this document. It covers process and testing requirements for robotic and semi-automatic dipping process but does not cover purely manual dipping processes, due to the lack of understanding of the appropriate requirements for hand-dipping for tin whisker mitigation at this time. This standard does not apply to piece-part manufacturers who build piece parts with a hot solder dip finish.

The terms included in the Glossary are general in nature and may not apply to all manufacturers’ systems. All terms in Section 3 apply to automotive inflatable restraint systems in general which are initiated by an electric or mechanical stimulus upon receipt of a signal from a sensor. These terms are intended to reflect existing designs and the Glossary will be updated as information on other types of systems becomes available. Appendix A is included to identify terminology that is no longer in common use or specifically applicable to inflatable restraint systems, but was published in the December 2001 version of SAE J1538.

GEIAHB859A
The federal government and industry have moved to concurrent acquisition and development processes using integrated process teams (IPTs). These processes are supported by timely, accurate, cross functional access to data within an integrated data environment (IDE) enabled by advances in information technology (IT). Since the advent of acquisition reform in 1994, Data Management (DM) practices have evolved from being directed by a prescriptive set of standards and procedures to use of the guidance in a principles-based standard -- ANSI/EIA 859.

GEIA Handbook 859 provides implementation guidance for ANSI/EIA 859, with discussions of applications of the standard's principles, tools, examples, and case studies. Handbook 859 is organized according to the lifecycle of data management and covers activities from the pre-RFP stage through records disposition.

Abstract The vehicle pass-by noise regulation will change in the near future and noise limits will be lowered significantly. This evolution will require improvement of engine's sound radiation. On the other hand, under the current pressure for fuel economy, future engines will be more and more lightened, and this will have negative impact on engine's sound emission. Therefore, the requirements related to the new pass-by noise regulation should be taken into account in the design of new powertrains, and in some cases, innovative solutions must be developed in order to improve the level of noise of the engine while reducing the masse of the engine. One effective way is to optimize the design of some key engine parts, such as crankshaft and engine bottom structure.

This document describes an evaluation method which measures the effectiveness of a specified test plan used to screen for counterfeit parts. The method includes the determination of the types of defects detected using a specified test plan along with the related counterfeit type coverage. The output of this evaluation will produce the counterfeit defect coverage (CDC), the not-covered defects (NCD), the under-covered defects (UCD), and the counterfeit type coverage (CTC). This information will be supplied to the test laboratory’s customer in both the test report and the Certificate of Quality Conformance. This evaluation method does not address the effectiveness of detecting tampered type devices.

This Bulletin is initially intended to be used to convey a combination of information to CM practitioners, both new and already skilled personnel alike. It provides the "what" of CM products and activities; with the "when" of CM correlated to DoD acquisition phases and milestones – thereby giving a time-phased depiction. The document spreadsheet should be read from top to bottom. It shows both the CM activities and products that should be performed and accomplished on a program or project. Next it provides a brief description of the CM activity or product and a column providing a reference(s) to other sources of information to learn even more about how the activity or product should be accomplished. Also included is a column for suggested level of CM control to be applied to the activity/product, from an Industry perspective. Future iterations will include a more complete dataset covering columns for entry criteria, exit criteria and related products from other skillcodes/disciplines.

RETRACTED: ABSTRACT 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.

GEIAHB0005_1A
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 flanges covered by this document are designated type A and type S. The type A flanges are equivalent to type A ISO 7646. The type S flanges are equivalent to the type S ISO 7647. Type A is an external (male) pilot construction and type S is an internal (female) pilot construction. These flanges are not interchangeable. Dimensions not specified are left to the discretion of the component manufacturer.

This SAE Recommended Practice outlines the qualification testing and performance related criteria of elastomeric boot seals used in constant velocity joint applications. These applications are referred to as front- wheel-drive halfshafts or axles, but can also be utilized in rear-wheel-drive halfshaft applications. For additional information regarding CV joint systems and their applications refer to SAE AE-7 "Universal Joint and Driveshaft Design Manual." The grease type and grease quantities, clamps and clamping mechanisms of an assembly are critical and considered to be the same as OEM, service, or aftermarket designation. Although joint lubricating grease and clamping mechanism are not addressed in this document, they are critical to a total system performance.
