Tolerance Stack-Up Analysis
This course is designed for engineers and others who need to understand stack calculations for piece parts and/or assemblies. Participants will learn a methodical approach to performing stacks that avoids many common mistakes. The course focuses on the main steps involved in calculating a stack: identify the problem, determine the stack path, transfer the dimensions to a spreadsheet, and calculate the answer. While the first several examples exclusively use traditional plus/minus examples, most of the course shows stacks using GD&T on prints. Many practice exercises using the worst-case approach will be done to reinforce the concepts. The course concludes with an overview of several statistical approaches to stacks.
