Proficiency in tolerance accumulation studies (also called stacks) separates the exceptional engineers from the rest. More than simply the study of dimensional relationships within assemblies, tolerance stacks are the key to creating robust, efficient, and successful designs. Stacks skills separate the exceptional engineers from the rest. If you’re a designer―or a product or process engineer―this textbook is a must.

The textbook includes 39 performance objectives to be mastered and more than 50 practice stacks to calculate.

  • Solve stack problems
  • Work examples
  • Take quizzes and tests
  • Analyze illustrations
  • Receive instant feedback
  • Chart your progress

This package is a resource that will pay dividends for years to come.

Program Goal: Calculate stacks in drawings using coordinate dimensioning and geometric tolerancing controls. Use stacks to create designs that maximize fit, function, and return on investment. Optimize part tolerances for design function and manufacturing processes.

This product is a valuable tool for: Intended as a course in geometric tolerancing, this is primarily for engineers, designers, inspectors, process engineers, machine builders, and anyone with an engineering-oriented quality function. Stacks are taught from a mathematical basis, so that all tolerances can be accounted for.

Skill level needed: Students should have basic blueprint reading skills and have completed courses in GD&T fundamentals and advanced concepts.

Product Highlights: Stresses applications that are found on the job in real-life industrial situations. The practice stacks are from actual drawings that are provided in a separate Drawing Package. It includes a skills assessment tool and exercises at the end of each chapter to practice the concepts.

Package includes:

  • Tolerance Stacks Textbook
  • Drawing Package—A spiral-bound booklet containing two complete product designs to analyze.

Format: Includes 39 performance objectives to be mastered and over 50 practice stacks to calculate.

Estimated Length: One semester course at the college level; a 24-30 hour industrial course
