Description

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 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.

Audience

This course provides an introduction to the benefits and challenges of GD&T. Upper level management, manufacturing management, and potential users in design and manufacturing will benefit.
