    Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing Fundamentals

    Who should attend: All those who use GD&T to design, produce and inspect parts: mechanical engineers, designers, managers, production planners, inspectors, machinists, supplier quality personnel, etc. The Need: A concurrent engineering team equipped with the proper tools has the ability to shorten time to market, reduce engineering changes and create a robust quality design. Design decisions should be optimized for quality cost and delivery at the sketch phase when an engineering change costs a few cents rather than hundreds or thousands of dollars months later. The drawing is the common thread of the concurrent engineering team. Course description: (3 days) You'll discover the major pitfalls of traditional coordinate tolerancing - and how they may be overcome by using Geometric Tolerancing. Then, starting with your basic blueprint knowledge, you'll learn the symbols, terminology and rules of Geometric Tolerancing as prescribed in the current standard (ASME Y14.5-2009)

    Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing Applications

    (16 hours) Who should attend: This seminar is intended for those who have already taken a fundamentals course in geometric dimensioning and tolerancing in accordance with the ASME Y14.5M-1994 standard. When representatives from design, quality, production and suppliers can attend, this course is most effective. Course description: You will learn how to apply GD&T to a variety of situations including your own parts. Sharpen your Geometric Tolerancing skills, fill in gaps, get your questions answered, make GD&T more useable, reduce product cost, improve datum selection and create robust designs. Learn how to use the GD&T Hierarchy. Advanced concepts on the application of profile and position as well as fixed and floating features will be discussed. Learn how to properly select datum features and allocate tolerances. Expand your knowledge of simultaneous requirements, composite tolerancing, profile tolerancing, robust design and boundary calculations.

    Tolerance Stack-Up (TSU) Training

    2 Day Class Who should attend: Designers and Design Engineers and those trouble shooting production problems who have already taken a fundamentals course in geometric dimensioning and tolerancing in accordance with the ASME Y14.5M-1994 standard. Additionally, a GD&T Applications course is recommended. The Need: Designers and Design Engineers must be able to determine how robust a design is at the sketch phase. Fit of parts is relatively easy to predict. Shift of parts within an assembly requires an understanding of advanced tolerancing concepts. This knowledge is required to perform manual 2-D and computer assisted 3-D analysis. Course Description: This advanced training teaches you how to study the cumulative effect of part tolerances in order to reduce product costs. You'll learn how to establish part tolerances, perform 2-D analyses of designs, use geometric tolerances in stack ups, and much more. Numerous assemblies will be studied.

    Design For Assembly (DFA) Training

    16 Hours The design of a part is the first step in its manufacture and it is then that the cost of manufacturing is committed. To remain competitive as a world class manufacturer, the design of a product must incorporate assembly methods, materials, tooling and the capabilities of the site(s) of manufacture at the conceptual phase. DFA is a tool for evaluating product designs to improve quality, cost and delivery at the earliest phase of design. It will primarily drive to reduce part count within and around the assembly and/or combine parts. DFA stresses the use of simple designs, modular assemblies, multi-functional parts, self-locating features, parts standardization and elimination of adjustments.

    Process Capable Tolerancing® (PCT) Training

    1 Day Who should attend: Designers, Design Engineers and those involved with supplier selection. The statistical concepts behind the process capability index Cpk and its importance to the engineers and designers will be explained in layman's terms. After presenting an introduction to tolerance stack up using the vector method, the Process Capable Tolerancing™ (PCT) methodology for creating components and products that are robust to process variation is presented. The Tolerance Capability Expert™ (TCE) software which facilitates the application of this methodology is demonstrated. The methodology is illustrated through industrial case studies
