Level 4 – Tolerance Analysis Seminar

Level 4 - Tolerance Analysis Seminar

GD&T Seminar (1)

Advanced Dimensional Management LLC's Level 4 Tolerance Analysis Seminar. Our seminars are open to the general public and available on a first-come-first-served basis.

This seminar presents the Advanced Dimensional Management Tolerance Analysis method in detail.  Worst-case and statistical techniques are covered and compared, and how to perform Stackups with +\- and GD&T.  Progressive exercises and problem-solving, including demonstration of and use of the Tolerance Stackup Software Toolset.  Many Tolerance Stackup problems are solved, addressing issues such as assemblability, maintaining clearance and comparing alternate Dimensioning and Tolerancing and design strategies. General tolerance stackups on parts and assembles, assembly shift, additional tolerance (bonus tolerance), datum feature shift, and the effect of many different geometric effects and GD&T issues are covered in great detail.  This seminar and the techniques we cover can help you to determine if you product geometry, assembly processes, and the specified dimensioning and tolerancing and GD&T schemes will lead to acceptable geometry.  Many examples dealing with fit, clearance, angular relationships, interference (intentional and unintentional), alignment and other functional implications are addressed in detail.  Ensuring interchangeability and properly aligned and properly functioning parts lie at the core of this workshop. We also address alternate assembly methods, using slots and similar features to address tolerance accumulation in assemblies, and the effect of forces during the assembly process. Like all our seminars, this is a very practical and useful seminar, and is well-liked by our students. We teach you what you need to know to be successful. Get it Right!™

About the Instructor:

Bryan R. Fischer is President of Advanced Dimensional Management LLC in Sherwood, Oregon, offering leading-edge training and consulting in Dimensioning and Tolerancing, GD&T, Tolerance Stackup and Analysis, Dimensional Management, Design, Standards and Quality.

Bryan and our other trainers are ASME Certified Senior Level GD&T Professionals.  Bryan and others are members of several ASME sub-committees. Bryan a member of the ASME Y14.5 Sub-committee Support Group, the US TAG to ISO TC213 which develops ISO GPS (GD&T, etc. standards, and directly involved in developing the ASME Y14.5 standard and ISO 1101 and 5459 standards. He is recognized as a leading authority in the theory and application of Dimensioning and Tolerancing, GD&T, Tolerance Analysis and Stackups and Dimensional Management.

He is a published author, having written several books on Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing, Tolerance Stackups and Tolerance Analysis. His books “The Journeyman’s Guide to Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing: GD&T for the New Millennium” now in its 12th revision, the GD&T Update Guide: ASME Y14.5-2009: Changes, Improvements, and Clarifications, and the GD&T Visual Glossary will be used as the basis for the seminar. His book “Mechanical Tolerance Stackup and Analysis,” now in its second edition (CRC Press 2011) is the preeminent title on Tolerance Stackups and Tolerance Analysis available.

In 2008 Bryan revised the 11th Edition of The IHS Global Drawing Requirements Manual (the DRM), and wrote an extensive new chapter on using Digital Data as Design Deliverables and Annotating Solid Models.  This is a book in itself, and is based on the ASME Y14.41-2003 and ISO 16792-2006 standards, and includes material not found in either of those standards.  We are leaders in 3D Model-Based Product Definition (3D MBD) and 3D Model-Based Enterprise (3D MBE) Implementation techniques training and consulting.  Check out our Books and Materials section and our 3D PMI, MBD, and Advanced Applications of Solid Modeling Seminar and other 3D MBD and 3D MBE courses for more information.
