Companies involved with making salable products rely on their products being acceptable to their customers, and this acceptance starts with a well-defined product. Drawings are used to define the product. Drawings have dimensions that define boundary conditions for individual features. Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing (GD&T) provides a common language for all areas involved in product realization. Proper dimensioning allows dimensional analysis before part production and verification of finished parts.

This course provides a high-level overview of the contents of the ASME Y14.5 - 2018 Dimensioning and Tolerancing Standard. The information in this Standard shows standardized methods for applying dimensions and tolerances through a language of letters, numbers, and special symbols. The Standard is adopted by the U.S. Department of Defense, all branches of the U.S. military, and thousands of companies in many countries. The course covers the twelve sections and five appendices of the ASME Y14.5 Standard.

By participating in the class, you will learn how to successfully:

  • Recognize the role that drawings play in product realization
  • Identify product realization areas that require knowledge of the ASME Y14.5 Standard
  • Describe the major topics covered in the twelve sections of the ASME Y14.5 Standard
  • Discuss topics covered in the five appendices

Who Should Attend?
This course is designed for personnel involved in engineering, design, drafting, quality assurance, procurement, tooling, production, purchasing, inspection, and anyone who wants to learn more about geometric dimensioning and tolerancing (GD&T) and the Y14.5 Standard.

Course participants are expected to have:

  • Access to computer equipment and a reliable internet connection
  • Software to display PDF files (such as Adobe Reader)
