Course Description: (4 Hours)

This class shows the quality, cost and delivery benefits of making Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing an integral part of the Product Development/Delivery Process. GD&T is not new, but there is a newness about it. Recent developments in CAD and CMM technology, ISO standards and Statistical Process Control have brought GD&T once again to the forefront of manufacturing. Participants will see that GD&T is a common language that may be used to improve communication between design, quality, manufacturing, suppliers and customers. When used properly, GD&T will get the right questions asked early in the program, simplify the engineering drawing, and directly relate customer requirements to product specifications and process control. Through down-to-earth examples, humor and uncommon sense, an overview of this powerful tool will be presented.
