Leadership and Management - Worldwide

Le principe de la personnalisation de l’offre amène l’industrie de l’automobile à proposer, pour chaque modèle vendu, un nombre important d’options, telles que le toit ouvrant, l’air climatisé ou les freins ABS. Cette diversité d’options nous oblige à accorder une grande attention au problème de la détermination de la séquence de voitures à assembler car l’équilibrage de la ligne d’assemblage en dépend. Pour définir une bonne séquence pour une journée de travail, nous proposons d’utiliser des heuristiques pour générer une séquence initiale puis d’utiliser des procédures pour en améliorer la ...

In this paper, a distributed driver-in-the-Ioop and hardware-in-the-Ioop simulator is described with a driver on a motion simulator at the U.S. Army TARDEC Ground Vehicle Simulation Laboratory (GVSL). Realistic power system response is achieved by linking the driver in the GVSL with a full-sized hybrid electric power system located 2,450 miles away at the TARDEC Power and Energy Systems Integration Laboratory (P&E SIL), which is developed and maintained by Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC). The goal is to close the loop between the GVSL and P&E SIL over the Internet to provide a realistic driving experience ...


Automobiles And Auto Manufacturing, John Alfred Heitmann Jan 2005

Automobiles And Auto Manufacturing, John Alfred Heitmann

History Faculty Publications

In several important respects the automobile and automobile manufacturing proved to be at the heart of North American life during the 1950s. The decade was one characterized as the age of tail fins and chrome, and the automobile was recognized as something far more than ordinary transportation.
