CEN Workshop on 'Fracture toughness evaluation methodologies applied to advanced high strength steel sheets'

The sheet metal forming sector faces a major challenge with respect manufacturing of metal sheet parts, represented by the lack of adequate test methods to assess sheet formability and part performance at the product design stage. This is essential to be able to develop high-performance parts at a reduced cost with new high strength materials, such as high strength steel (AHSS). Such high strength makes them processing sensitive, so forming parameters and sheet properties must be assessed to assure a zero-defect production and part quality, avoiding unexpected defects that cannot be predicted at the product design stage using traditional experimental or computational approaches.

Draft CEN Workshop Agreement on 'Quality Assurance Guidelines for Dual Training Systems'

This Workshop will produce a CEN Workshop Agreement (CWA), which will define quality criteria and guidelines for effective dual training (dual systems). The document aims at simplifying the dual training process for every kind of structure and it will include examples of best practices related to the different experiences of the CEN Workshop participants. It will also contain an annex addressing the need for code of conducts between host company and trainee and providing for additional examples, thus addressing another relevant aspect, which is the centrality of the person, seen not only as a resource and part of an economic mechanism.
