HMC Theta BS/OPMWeekly Progress Report

Friday, 23rd July 2004


Hmc theta bs opm weekly progress report

Introduction

This report contains an activity list that is being used to track Engineering activities associated with the HMC BSM gear whine investigation and other general noise improvement actions. It is updated on a daily basis. Open items on the list are included with status comments. Items that are completed remain on the list for 1 day and are then removed, allowing room for new items to be added as required.

The content on each slide is associated with the action item list by the item number in the upper left header.

Where conclusions are available, we have included them in this report.

Item 11 next steps 10 hmc returned modules

Item 11 – Next Steps - 10 HMC Returned Modules

  • 1 of 10 HMC Returned Modules

    • 1 of the 10 samples being returned is module FKP which was in the vehicle we rode in on July 9th that exhibited the “marginally acceptable” whine noise. Please note, that this was a P2 vehicle and was not equipped with the under hood beauty cover or engine noise treatments planned for production. As such, it should be noted that the noise level of this vehicle did not represent that of the current powertrain noise level.

    • Module tested on EOL NVH

    • Results documented in file“EOL whine testing vs engine testing.ppt” sent to HMC with 23 July 2004 weekly report.

    • 9 returned modules discussed in item 15.


Ongoing gear noise improvement item 13 module with custom round connector shafts

Ongoing Gear Noise Improvement Item 13 – Module with custom “round connector” shafts

  • Shafts designed to fit in current production module.

  • Prints submitted for fabrication.

  • Shafts currently being manufactured. Delay caused by material availability.

  • Shaft bearing journals will be ground, polished, and assembled at Fremont facility before EOL testing and engine testing.

  • Results to be analyzed and submitted to HMC on completion.


Item 15 next steps 10 hmc returned modules

Item 15 – Next Steps - 10 HMC Returned Modules

  • 9 of 10 HMC Returned Modules

    • 9 of the 10 modules used by HMC to develop the 0.65g acceptance criteria due at Plymouth week of 20 July 2004

Long term nvh improvement plan status

Long Term NVH Improvement Plan - Status

The following items have been prioritized based on the degree of improvement offered to the BSM, the likelihood of successful development / implementation, the amount of change to the product architecture, and the urgency of current gear whine issue resolution.

  • 1. Polymer gears – Development activity is underway for polymer gears for the transfer gear set. These gears will moulded to a metal hub with tooth geometries also part of the moulding process. Timing is on track to receive test parts mid-September. Successful testing of transfer gears will precede development of input gear mould tooling.

  • Ground transfer gears – Capacity of the gear grinding line has been reviewed and identified as feasible. Ground gears have been produced and testing on the Fremont EOL test machine & Theta engine at Roush. Two samples sent to HMC for validation.


Long term nvh improvement plan status1

Long Term NVH Improvement Plan - Status

  • Remove heat treat from input gears – This activity was initiated and tested with 12.5° gears successfully. High speed durability testing at Metaldyne showed no significant signs of wear. Test modules were supplied to HMC for engine / vehicle testing as well. Next steps include testing of 31° gears with torsionally intensive durability test & cold testing at Metaldyne, and HMC validation testing. Metaldyne testing could be achieved within the HMC validation schedule if HMC agrees.

  • Transfer gear MOB increase – Based on recent measurements of transfer gear backlash levels, we are currently producing modules in the bottom ~25% of the running ranged proposed during our April ’04 meeting. Due to the recent change in helix angle from 12.5° to 31°, the gear supplier is still ramping up their production. Since we are attempting to build a bank to facilitate transferring our line to Korea, we are reluctant to interrupt their ramp-up activity until they reach full production levels.Data from EOL testing shows no significance to whine issue


Long term nvh improvement plan status2

Long Term NVH Improvement Plan - Status

  • Revised helix angle for input gears – This activity is currently on hold pending gear supplier production status. Lessons learned from the 12.5° gear development revealed the need to test production intent manufacturing process as the prototype gears performed differently than gears made with the production process. Due to the recent change in helix angle from 12.5° to 31°, the gear supplier is still ramping up their production. Since we are attempting to build a bank to facilitate transferring our line to Korea, we are reluctant to interrupt their ramp-up activity until they reach full production levels.

  • Polymer gears (with internal damper) – This activity was initiated as part of the initial gear rattle problem investigation. It will continue pending development of item 1 and allocation of resources from other HMC urgent issues.


Long term nvh improvement plan status3

Long Term NVH Improvement Plan - Status

  • Scissors gears – This activity is on hold based on the scope of development required to overcome known power consumption and gear whine issues as seen during initial development and allocation of resources from other HMC urgent issues.

  • Oil pump circuit sizing for increased drag torque – This activity is on hold based on the scope of development required to reconfigure the entire oil pump system allocation of resources from other HMC urgent issues.

  • Switch to World Engine Module – Same as above based on pending results.
