This two-day foundational-level course teaches the thought processes involved in assigning GD&T to components, and it changes the way many engineers think about part tolerancing. The course focuses on what constitutes good and poor drawing practices, common dimensioning methods used in industry, using GD&T to communicate system functions on component dimensions, and the logic of how to apply GD&T to components. You’ll also learn how to select datum features and how to fully define component surfaces using GD&T. Establishing tolerance values is not covered.
You’ll reinforce what you’ve learned by performing a design functional analysis on a part assembly provided by your company, then specifying GD&T on assembly components. (This is optional in case of concerns over drawing privacy.)Each attendee receives:
Small groups (8-12) are most effective in this hands-on workshop. Those attending will work in teams and actually create GD&T tolerance markups of their company parts.
After completing this class, you’ll be able to:
This course is designed for product engineers, designers, checkers, and engineering managers, and supplier quality engineers.
Students should have complete 16 hours of formalized classroom training in GD&T or the SAE Fundamentals of GD&T course. You should also have experience interpreting or applying GD&T in an industrial setting and working knowledge of the ASME Y14.5-2009 Standard.
You must complete all course contact hours and successfully pass the learning assessment to obtain CEUs.
All SAE GD&T instructors are industry professionals with years of experience applying geometric dimensioning and tolerancing on the job.
SAE instructors use identical training materials and lesson plans, so you receive the same class presentation from every trainer.
