WEBINAR: The Myth of Accuracy
Date: 22 September, 1-2pm
Presenter: Damian Harty
There exists a commonly held, if rarely spoken, belief that the usefulness of any predictive model is directly related to its accuracy as measured against the real world.
In a deliberately contentious manner, this belief is tested and found wanting with several examples of real world processes. There is a time when sufficient accuracy is optimum. An approach is described which encourages discernment of optimum accuracy by all involved in the process.
Although this webinar has been arranged for the EIS Young Engineers Forum we invite all to attend free of charge. To register your attendance please email firstname.lastname@example.org
Damian has a rich history of modelling and discovery through modelling, gained through years of working with a wealth of renowned companies including Ford, Prodrive, Tesla and most recently Byton North America. A published author in multibody modelling, he uses both commercial and classical methods. Areas of expertise include motorcycle stability, handling and durability modelling tool generation along with limit/post-limit control modelling and World Rally Car damper & steering research. Since the start of his early career Damian has strived to be deeply technical and his research allows him to draw conclusions which sometimes counter “prevailing wisdom”. His passion for true all-circumstance autonomous control is infectious and his presentations often leave the audience with a desire to review and question established methodology.

WEBINAR: RLD Collection & Analysis - are you forgetting the basics?
Date: 23 July, 1-2pm
Presenter: David Ensor
This webinar was aimed at those who collect or analyse road load or real life data. It provided a refresher for more experienced engineers or served as an introduction for those new to the field. It can be easy to take the fundamentals for granted and inadvertently make simple mistakes when collecting or analysing data. David addressed the questions you should ask before setting off to collect or analyse hours, or even days, of data, enabling you to produce accurate and valuable results
Several topics were discussed including: Sensor basics - are you using the right sensor to measure what you want? Testing variables – do you understand or even trust the data you have collected? Do you know your data is statistically representative? Do you know why you are collecting or using the data? Are your goals clear, and investigating the right things? Most importantly is your data useable & useful in the test, analysis or development?
David has over 40 years’ experience in the automotive & supplier industry gained in many companies worldwide. He is a specialist in fatigue analysis, instrumentation, durability, data analysis & RLD and has worked in component durability & full vehicle durability development. He has managed a number of development and advanced engineering departments until being asked to be a Senior Consultant at HORIBA-MIRA. David has developed durability schedules for numerous world markets and delivered durability programs alongside numerous trouble-shooting and problems solving exercises for a range of OEMs & Tier 1 & 2 Suppliers. In addition to this he has produced many technical papers advancing fatigue & data analysis processes.
