Here is the Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing pocket guide you have been waiting for. All illustrations are in full color. By using solid models of real parts, 3-D illustrations of datums and geometric tolerance zones and extensive use of color it was possible to create a handy guide that clearly explains the meaning of GD&T. This is the biggest little pocket guide there is. There are over 130 pages of GD&T that will fit in your pocket. Everything is in accordance with the ASME Y14.5 standard (both 1994 and 2009 revisions). Where a concept is referencing the 2009 revision of the standard, the text is shaded in green.

Fundamentals of GD&T personal training software based on Don Day's The GD&T Hierarchy textbook collection. ASME Y14.5-2009 version with coverage of former practices in ASME Y14.5M-1994.
Gwen says, "I absolutely love this course…I can go as slow as I want and go back and review slides if I need to…. This is the way to go. I don’t interrupt others learning, yet I get to fully understand before I move on."
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.
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)
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.
In this class you will learn the major changes that have been made to the ASME Y14.5-2009 standard. Discover why and when you will want to move to this latest revision.
This course is presented live via the Internet and telephone using the WebEx training portal. In this Webinar you will learn the major changes that have been made to the ASME Y14.5-2009 standard. Discover why and when you will want to move to this latest revision.
Equipment Requirements: A computer with a high-speed Internet connection and a phone preferably with a headset.
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.
2 Day Class
Who should attend: Those who have already taken a fundamentals course in geometric dimensioning and tolerancing in accordance with the ASME Y14.5M-1994 standard. Production and inspection will learn the best ways to inspect geometric tolerances using available resources. Designers and engineers will gain a deeper understanding of GD&T principles and the consequences of their application.
The Need: This advanced course sharpens your Geometric Tolerancing skills and makes the tool even more useful.
"You can't make what you can't measure because You don't know when you've got it made."
Course Description: This intensive workshop will provide you with guidelines for selecting the most appropriate inspection methods for inspecting a part feature, low cost functional gage design principles, criteria for selecting company/division gaging policy and an overview of inspection equipment capabilities.
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.
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
