# Advanced Concepts of GD&T ASME Y14.5M 1994 - Foundational Level ET2411

Topics: Quality, Safety & Maintenance

This 2-day foundational-level course teaches advanced geometric dimensioning and tolerancing topics as prescribed in the ASME Y14.5M-1994 Standard.

The class offers an in-depth explanation of advanced GD&T topics including:
• Product design and functional dimensioning
• Feature and feature of size
• Dimensioning standards on drawings
• Rigid and flexible (non-rigid) parts
• Requirements for parts measured in the restrained state
• Datum usage on restrained (non-rigid) parts
• Calculating advanced applications of form controls
• Uses, advantages, misconceptions, and common errors of the datum system
• Nine common datum feature types
• Modifier usage in tolerance of position applications
• The effects of simultaneous and separate requirements with tolerance of position
• Composite and multiple single-segment position and profile tolerancing
• Profile applications

Each participant receives: An Advanced Concepts of GD&T (ASME Y14.5M-1994) textbook,  A GD&T Ultimate Pocket Guide (1994), and A Fundamentals of GD&T Exercise Workbook.

Newly acquired learning is reinforced throughout the class with approximately 200 practice problems. For additional advanced GD&T topics, including a discussion of the fundamentals of drawing interpretation, how to handle substandard drawings, how to specify/interpret specialized datum feature applications, interpreting tolerance of position applications with a conical tolerance zone, and 50 additional practice exercises, see our Advanced Concepts of GD&T 3-day advanced-level course.

##### Learning Objectives

After completing this course, you will be able to:

• Explain the importance of product design and functional dimensioning
• Define the terms “feature” and “feature of size”
• Recognize which dimensioning standards apply to an engineering drawing
• Recognize the difference between a rigid and a flexible (non-rigid) part
• State the requirements for tolerancing parts measured in the restrained state
• Identify the two special considerations for datum usage on restrained (non-rigid parts
• Calculate advanced applications of form controls
• Describe advanced datum target concepts
• Describe modifier usage in tolerance of position applications
• Describe the effects of simultaneous and separate requirements with tolerance of position
• Explain composite position tolerancing and multiple single-segment position tolerancing
• Explain composite profile tolerancing and multiple single-segment profile tolerancing
• Describe profile applications

##### Who Should Attend

This course is valuable for individuals who create or interpret engineering drawings: product and gage designers; process, product, and manufacturing engineers; supplier quality engineers/professionals; CMM operators; buyers/purchasers; checkers; inspectors; technicians; and sales engineers/professionals.

##### Prerequisites

Please be aware that this is not an introductory course. In order to understand the course content, participants should have completed the Fundamentals of GD&T course or equivalent.

You must complete all course contact hours and successfully pass the learning assessment to obtain CEUs.
