Preparing Engineers for Success In a fast paced environment

 

The competitive marketplace pushes engineering and manufacturing organizations to keep on top of the latest technological trends and engineering best-practices. Many companies are facing significant gaps between the in-house competencies of their engineers and the company's technological needs to grow their business.

 Advanced Training Program for certified Mechanical Engineers

Based on its extended experience working and advising some of the leading companies in various industry sectors,  NOVA has created a comprehensive Engineering skill-set update training program aimed the needs of engineering and manufacturing organizations who are looking to upgrade/enhance the competencies of their mechanical engineers and designers.

 

The training program is tailored  around the specific technical needs of the organization and covers key topic areas  of mechanical Engineering best practices

As every skilled designer knows, any design project that starts from the scratch needs a layout concept as a preliminary activity. This happens in every field of industrial design, such as machine design, automotive design (powertrain or chassis) and aerospace. Once the specifications of a project have been transposed to the designer the very first steps that have to be kept into account are:

  • Interface respect to external environment/adjacent assemblies (e.g. engine positioning in the chassis); interface respect to adjacent components in the whole assembly (e.g. crankshaft/crankcase)
  • Functionality of mechanisms (verification of specified movements/kinematics)
  • Prediction of the shape of the different components of the assembly as a result of the layout (e.g. bodywork shape as a result of the suspension and steering envelope kinematics)

Advanced techniques like “top-down design approach” enables to keep under control the above mentioned requirements and easily develop assembly design in modern parametric 3D CAD systems.

This training program is designed in order to put in condition of managing this kind of assembly design problems starting from the younger designer (who needs typically methodological support) up to the skilled and experienced designer (who needs to synthesize his ideas into a 3D CAD file)

Often, both skilled designers and junior designers need a support in using virtual design and simulation tools. What we can offer is a hands on, pilot project based, customized training in order to enable project engineers and CAE analysts to face up to the following situations:

  • passage from 2D to 3D environment
  • new CAD/CAE system introduced in the company
  •  underused CAD/CAE system in the company: effectiveness maximization of a software tool

Our customized trainings are based on the following software tools where NOVA has a wide knowledge and experience in real industrial projects and day by day usage.

 

NOVA has experienced during the development of a lot of design projects, from simple objects where it’s critical to manage standardization, commonality of components and variety (such as industrial components), to the most complex projects (full vehicle design management, large aerospace assemblies), that industrial companies need support in harmonizing and systematizing information (legacy) of already developed projects into a consolidated, valuable, usable heritage of knowledge for dealing with next projects.

NOVA has consolidated experience in supporting large and small companies in the following areas:

  • 2D drawing for cost effective manufacturing (tolerances analyses, treatment choice, material choice)
  • Design procedure development and dissemination within the technical area of the company
  • Variety Reduction Programs (VRP)
  • Design automatization (effective CAD assemblies configurators) and product versioning
  • Upfront simulation approach in product development
  • Cost effective and rapid CAE product simulation
