Publisher: Effective Training Inc. Edition Desc: 2nd

Advanced Concepts of Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing is more than a textbook. It’s a reference tool that stresses the application of GD&T in today’s industrial workplace, and it’s the perfect resource to expand and deepen your understanding of GD&T.

Program goal: The goal of the Advanced Concepts of GD&T textbook is to build on your existing fundamental geometric dimensioning and tolerance skills. The book covers GD&T topics in a manner that relates closely to how GD&T is used in industry. The examples are more complex and include explanations of tolerancing concepts that are often problematic in the workplace. The text explains items that are not explicitly documented in Y14.5, but are needed and used in industry.

This book is a valuable tool for: Designers; product, manufacturing, and quality engineers; CMM operators; checkers

Skill level needed: Advanced Concepts of GD&T has been completely updated to reflect the changes in the ASME Y14.5M-1994 standard. It is intended for those who have mastered the fundamental concepts of GD&T and are ready to take this knowledge into a more applications-oriented setting.

Product highlights: The text features 26 chapters that cover a broad range of tolerancing practices that are common in industry, but not well documented in national standards. Three chapters are devoted to tolerancing non-rigid parts. Position, profile, and datums are covered in detail. Other topics include:
· Functional dimensioning
· Drawing interpretation
· Advantages and misconceptions of the datum system
· Relating tolerance applications to a loss function curve
· Tolerancing of threaded holes
· Composite position
· Profile applications . . . and much much more.

Package includes: There are numerous tips, suggestions, and practical applications relating to the common usage of GD&T. The text also includes 50 exercises, with over 250 problems designed to help reinforce the material.

Format: The goals and objectives of each chapter are clearly described to keep you focused on the material. At the end of each chapter you will find a number of exercises to reinforce the material once you have learned it.

Estimated length: One semester course at the college level; 24-30 hour industrial course.
