    8 D – Problem Solving

    • For a program launched in June 2020 we are facing an issue, the H Point of the Seat is not as per the OEM given value. The issue is observed in 56 car Seats set out of total production of 3250 cars.
    • The issue is observed in Foam. The Foam Hardness is not as per Specs.
    • Use 5 M, Pugh, and other technical logical reasoning ways to solve the issue.

     

    1 – A seat needs to be designed for which track peel out strength need to be calculated. The hand calculation needs to be done for which following details are provided :
    H – Point: X – 1175.4 mm, Y – 337.5 mm, Z – 390 mm
    Weight of the seat: - 18 Kg
    CG – same as H – Point
    Alpha Angle : 3 Degree
    Beta Angle: 3.7 Degree
    Mounting Point : 
    Point 1 : 
    X - 1093 mm
    Y – 290 mm
    Z – 298 mm
    Point 2 : 
    X - 1169 mm
    Y – 390 mm
    Z – 307 mm


    Calculate the strength of the Track (Peel Out Strength) required.


    * Assume data that are not provided in the above and make hand calculation with formula so that can be updated with the change in any value.

     

     

    Project 3

    Highlights

    • Remaster the solids using the best practice as given below:
