Executive Overview
Understanding Business Implications of GD&T—Course Outline

Course Objective

Provide business level insight to all management levels of the technical challenges and business level implications of GD&T and measurement. Provide direct insight to the implications effective GD&T has on improving product development cycles and customer/supplier relationships. Establish a core foundational understanding of the scope of GD&T applicability to all departments/divisions within area the company.

Course Length 4-hours
   
Meeting Content Current Global Industrial Problems
 
  • Incorrect Perceptions of Linear Tolerancing and Negative Impact to Product Development Cycles

  • Incorrect Perceptions of Technical Competencies of Mechanical Engineers and Engineers of other Disciplines

  • Negative Implications to Measurement Capability (GR&R) & Statistical Process Capability (Cpk)

  • Negative Implications to Supply Chain Management and Lead-Time to Market

  Ongoing Technical & Business Challenges
 
  • Business Implications to Product Technology Roadmap

  • Miniaturization and Tolerance Truncation of Components & Features

  • Historical Changes in ASME Standards & Implications of ISO Standards

  • Business Implications of GD&T from a Product Reliability Perspective

  Targeted Industrial Solutions
 
  • Business Value of Standardization & Harmonization of Engineering Practices

  • Technology Training Roadmap by Functional Business Area

  Technical & Business Benefits
 
  • Global Simplification of Dimensioning & Tolerancing Practices

  • Positive Implications of GD&T from a Tolerancing Model Perspective

  • Cost Reductions from Suppliers Influenced by Precision GD&T

  • Internal Cost Reductions Influenced by Increase in Design Specification Tolerances

Targeted Audience All managers and executives with direct or indirect responsibility for product development, manufacturing, quality, customer interaction or supply chain management!
Motivation & Historical Challenges

Most managers at all levels have lacked a core understanding of the business implications these subjects have on product development timelines, product reliability/risk and supplier/customer interactions. The incorrect assumption by most managers is that all of their applicable employees have the necessary skill sets to adequately perform their job tasks at an adequate level. The key question to all managers should be “where and how would their employees have acquired these fundamental skill sets?” GD&T and measurement are not subjects taught at most universities and colleges and are not focus subjects in mechanical engineering (ME) programs. At best the ME is barely introduced to GD&T and even less on measurement. If the ME is not getting adequately trained in these areas then where and how are the remaining disciplines being adequately trained (technicians, tool makers, drafters, designers, quality, statisticians, etc)?

Targeted Audience All managers and executives with direct or indirect responsibility for product development, manufacturing, quality, customer interaction or supply chain management!
Motivation & Historical Challenges

Most managers at all levels have lacked a core understanding of the business implications these subjects have on product development timelines, product reliability/risk and supplier/customer interactions. The incorrect assumption by most managers is that all of their applicable employees have the necessary skill sets to adequately perform their job tasks at an adequate level. The key question to all managers should be “where and how would their employees have acquired these fundamental skill sets?” GD&T and measurement are not subjects taught at most universities and colleges and are not focus subjects in mechanical engineering (ME) programs. At best the ME is barely introduced to GD&T and even less on measurement. If the ME is not getting adequately trained in these areas then where and how are the remaining disciplines being adequately trained (technicians, tool makers, drafters, designers, quality, statisticians, etc)?

Course Content In-Depth Analysis & Implications of Advanced Principles
 
  • MMC, LMC and RFS applied to datum features of size

  • Multiple feature patterns used to define a single datum, and negative implications of using “non-functional” surfaces as datum features

  • 3D analysis of composite position callouts, in relationship to multiple hole patterns defined as a single datum

  • Calculations for determining allowable position tolerance for floating and fixed fastener designs

  • Positioning holes and patterns of holes at “zero tolerance” for optimizing manufacturability and critical cost reductions

  • Positioning coaxial cylinders from independent datum features -vs- to each other and defined as compound datum features

  • Boundary principles used with profile for non-cylindrical shapes

  • Mathematical definitions and implications of ASME Y14.5.1M-1994

  • Surface roughness implications to features of size and form constraints

  Optimization Strategies in Applications & Analysis of Design, Manufacturing and Measurement
 
  • Analysis and discussion of common error implications of dimensioning and tolerancing of tooling and functional gaging, based on product designs

  • Evaluate negative implications of common incorrect measurement procedures on coordinate measuring machines (CMMs) and discuss procedures to resolve / minimize problems

  • Review and analyze “your” engineering drawings and identify areas of negative financial implications, address questions to provide clarification/direction and make recommendations to optimize design intent and achieve maximum ROI

  Advanced Tolerancing Development

 

  • 3D Complex Profile Geometry and Tolerance Boundaries used with & without datums

GD&T Implications to Corporate Six-Sigma Initiatives and Product Reliability
