Instructor-LedDesign & Engineering915Design & Engineering915101 Design for Manufacturability and Assembly (DFM/DFA) DFM is the classic method of creating good product designs that reduce part count, simplify manufacturing techniques, and standardize parts and materials with the ultimate goal of developing a quality product at the lowest cost while saving time. The primary advantage of the design for assembly (DFA) methodology is that it ensures a good design early in the design process before much effort and cost has been expended in pursuing an ineffective design.  English
Instructor-LedDesign & Engineering915Design & Engineering915107 Precision Machine Design A precision machine is an integrated system that relies on the attributes of one component to augment the weakness of another component. In this course, emphasis is placed on the design of mechanical and structural precision machine components and their integration with sensor and control systems to maximize performance. In the discussion of the design of components and assemblies, emphasis is placed on how the design will affect overall accuracy, repeatability, and resolution of the machine.  English
Instructor-LedDesign & Engineering915Design & Engineering915113 Root Cause Failure Analysis Root cause failure analysis (RCFA) addresses a problem that has appeared in a previously stable environment. Although this technique is most often applied to a production environment, the principles also work in any non-manufacturing arena that has a sudden occurrence of a problem. This technique searches for the element of change (perhaps in a constantly changing environment) which allowed the system to go out of control and evidence the problem. RCFA relies on data to analyze the conditions that now allow the problem to be seen against the conditions when the problem was not apparent. Participants will learn when to perform a root cause failure analysis, the root cause failure analysis process and regulatory guidance, and concerns with respect to RCFA. Several root cause failure analysis techniques include stressing the use of change analysis, barrier analysis, and event and causal factor analysis. These techniques are demonstrated through practical exercises.  English

GD&T is a valuable language that communicates the design intent to manufacturing and inspection. It is governed by the technical standard ASME Y14.5-2009. This course covers all aspects of GD&T. In addition to learning the theory, participants will see numerous examples that demonstrate specific applications. Participants are welcome to bring sample prints to the class for discussion or private consultation.  English

While much of a drawing is devoted to the different visual views, there is a great deal of other information to understand. This one-day course covers the basic areas of interpreting mechanical drawings, from the details found in a title block to the meaning of different line types to a proper method for visualizing a part from the two-dimensional images. Participants will also learn how to interpret dimensions and tolerances, and review several sample drawings throughout the day.  English
