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 ...

GD&T

To better define a product, geometric dimensioning and tolerancing (GD&T) is often used as a symbolic way of showing specific tolerances on drawings. GD&T is a valuable language that communicates the design intent to manufacturing and inspection. It is governed ...

Print Reading

Engineering drawings (often still called blueprints) are the means of communicating the necessary requirements of a product or assembly. While much of a drawing is devoted to the different visual views, there is a great deal of other information to ...

GD&T Overview

Geometric dimensioning and tolerancing (GD&T) is a three-dimensional international engineering language used by design, production, and engineering staff. Proper interpretation and application of the language may mean the difference between quality products with excellent cycle time or defective products and ...

GD&T for DFM

This course will show how a product's functional requirements are converted into designs which have the highest level of functionality, manufacturability, and assembly, but at the lowest cost. This will be accomplished by integrating many different support tools, the most ...

Instructor-LedDesign & Engineering915Design & Engineering915100 Concurrent Engineering The purpose of this course is to practice the techniques of concurrent engineering, and to improve and promote a unique type of communication between departments during the initial and all succeeding stages of a product introduction. This course will demonstrate how functional departments can reduce time and money spent in scrap and rework by uncovering and resolving potential product problems before they occur.  English
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-LedFoundational800Shop Essentials (Applied Mathematics)915103 GD&T To better define a product, geometric dimensioning and tolerancing (GD&T) is often used as a symbolic way of showing specific tolerances on drawings. 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
Instructor-LedFoundational800Shop Essentials (Applied Mathematics)915108 Print Reading Engineering drawings (often still called blueprints) are the means of communicating the necessary requirements of a product or assembly. 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

Proper interpretation and application of the language may mean the difference between quality products with excellent cycle time or defective products and extended time to market. This course will provide an overview on the general concepts of GD&T, the benefits of its use, and the cost of implementation.  English
Instructor-LedFoundational800Shop Essentials (Applied Mathematics)915102 GD&T for DFM This course will show how a product's functional requirements are converted into designs which have the highest level of functionality, manufacturability, and assembly, but at the lowest cost. This will be accomplished by integrating many different support tools, the most important of which is geometric dimensioning and tolerancing (GD&T). GD&T will be demonstrated as the only tool which has the versatility to convey functionality, design intent, fixturing requirements, and verification techniques, making it the only common language uniting designers, manufacturing engineers, and quality control personnel.  English
