This Recommended Practice (RP) document will provide guidance on performing a non-handbook reliability prediction for automotive electronic products by utilizing field return data. It will include a description of what kind of data is required, possible sources of data, how to collect it, and the methodology of how to process these data to obtain failure rates. This document will also include the existing failure rate data Delphi Electronics & Safety is currently using for reliability prediction and the Excel-based tool for these types of calculations.

Abstract In recent past, the two stroke vehicle manufacturers are continuously motivated to develop extreme low emission vehicle for meeting the requirements of emissions regulations. To achieve this emission compliance, manufacturers have developed engines with better induction system, improved ignition timings, increased compression ratio (C.R) and larger after-treatment devices. As an effect of above changes, engine operating temperatures are quite high which reduces the block-piston life. Even though, typical two stroke engines are forced cooled engines, there is a lot of potential for optimizing block cooling to reduce maximum liner temperature and block gradient for enhancing block-piston durability. This paper presents an experimental study of various measures to reduce liner temperature for a two stroke, single cylinder 70 c.c. engine used for two wheeler application.

The following subjects reflect the automotive environment and are based on good engineering practices and past ("lessons learned") experiences. Since it is impossible to be all inclusive and cover every aspect of quality and reliability, this document should be used as a basis for preparation of a more comprehensive and detailed checklist that reflects the accumulated "lessons learned" at a particular Company. It is not the intent of this document to give a lot of detail, only to point out the type of subjects that need to be investigated and acted upon.

The aviation, space, and defense industries rely on the development and manufacture of complex products comprised of multiple systems, subsystems, and components each designed by individual designers (design activities) at various levels within the supply chain. Each design activity controls various aspects of the configuration and specifications related to the product. When a change to design information is requested or required, the change has to be evaluated against the impacts to the higher-level system. Proposed changes to design information that the design activity identifies to be minor and have no effect on their product requirements or specifications have the potential to be concurrently implemented and approved, where authorized to do so. Changes that affect customer mandated requirements or specifications shall be approved prior to implementation.

The new Bosch Automotive Handbook , now in its 9th English edition, has been completely revised and enhanced to include the most recent developments in automotive technology. About 200 specialist authors contributed to this new version of every engineer’s must-have reference. The book's format has been revised: it is now 20 percent longer and wider, as this allows for a larger font size. This makes the texts and graphics easier to read. The index has been strongly expanded to make looking up technical terms easier. The Bosch Automotive Handbook is a best-seller, with a broad global readership. Students of engineering programs consult it, as do researchers and engineers in the automotive industry. Mechanics who are studying to become master craftsmen also use it as a reference work. Experts trust the well-founded and extensive expertise that can be found in the classic. The Bosch Automotive Handbook is widely regarded around the world as a standard work for automotive technology.

Abstract Advances in engine controls and sensor technology are making advanced, direct, high-speed control of engine combustion more feasible. Control of combustion rate and phasing in low-temperature combustion regimes and active control of cyclic variability in dilute SI combustion are being pursued in laboratory environments with high-quality data acquisition systems, using metrics calculated from in-cylinder pressure. In order to implement these advanced combustion controls in production, lower-quality data will need to be tolerated even if indicated pressure sensors become available. This paper examines the effects of several data quality issues, including phase shifting (incorrect TDC location), reduced data resolution, pressure pegging errors, and random noise on calculated combustion metrics that are used for control feedback.

The objective of this course is to provide an in-depth understanding of the concepts and principles involved in the Review and Configuration Audit process. It is intended for an individual who has completed a basic introductory course in CM and who requires the deeper knowledge of a CM practitioner rather than a superficial overview. Technical review and product audit practices described in this text are based on Government requirements. This emphasis is made because the Department of Defense DOD) represents a major customer of goods and services and because the referenced specifications and standards reflect good business practices refined over many years of usage. For commercial companies producing items for other companies or the public, many of these reviews and audits may not be formally implemented. They are, however, an integral and essential part of the systems engineering process.
