Hotel & Travel Information

Providing you have an understanding of GD&T fundamentals, this course teaches an introduction to geometric dimensioning and tolerancing and its impact on the manufacturing process. Utilizing the expertise of world-renowned GD&T expert Alex Krulikowski, the course focuses on the basic requirements of engineering drawings, size dimensions, form tolerances, and the datum system, as well as the impact of tolerancing requirements on production. Newly acquired learning is reinforced with numerous practice problems. Each attendee receives a robust collection of learning resources including:

  • A copy of GD&T for Manufacturing course book, by Alex Krulikowski
  • A GD&T Ultimate Pocket Guide (’09)
  • Class handouts
  • ETI’s Digital Design Dictionary software ($79 value)
  • 30-day access to "Engineering Drawing Requirements"based on ASME Y14.100-2004 and ASME Y14.24-1999, (a $51 value) to practice and reinforce what was learned in the classroom
Thousands of students have learned GD&T through Alex Krulikowski’s textbooks, self-study courses, computer-based training, and online learning center. Students who attend courses like this one walk away with more than knowledge. They gain on-the-job skills because the learning materials are performance-based.

Learning Objectives
By attending this class, you will be able to:

  • Understand the basic facts about engineering drawings
  • Recognize the types of dimensions and tolerances used on engineering drawings
  • Explain the basic concepts and requirements of size dimensions
  • Answer five basic questions for interpreting form tolerances
  • Describe the basic concepts of the datum system and planar datums
  • Describe the basic concepts of datum targets and size datums
  • Answer five basic questions for interpreting orientation, position, runout, and profile of a surface tolerances
  • Explain the purpose and limitations of in-process inspection methods
  • Assess the GD&T on a typical drawing and determine the impact to manufacturing

Who Should Attend
This course is designed for product engineers, designers, checkers, and engineering managers, and supplier quality engineers.

Prerequisites
Students should have completed ETI's Engineering Drawing Requirements course or equivalent.
