BPI-116 Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing (GD&T) - Advance Level
Schedule and Hours
The Advanced Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing (GD&T) course spans five days, immersing participants in an intensive exploration of intricate GD&T principles and their sophisticated applications. Building upon a solid intermediate foundation, this course aims to empower engineers, designers, and quality control professionals with mastery over advanced concepts.
Sessions cover complex feature control frames, in-depth profile tolerancing, advanced datum reference frame strategies, specialized GD&T applications such as circular and total runout tolerances, and advanced positional tolerancing. Participants will delve into the nuances of advanced datum feature simulators and gain expertise in tolerance stack-up analysis for intricate assemblies.
The program also addresses the integration of GD&T into the design process for optimal manufacturability, advanced inspection methodologies, and the application of GD&T principles in the context of 3D modeling and digital manufacturing. Through hands-on exercises, case studies, and a comprehensive group project, participants will apply their knowledge to real-world scenarios, culminating in a final project presentation. This advanced course is tailored for professionals seeking a mastery level in GD&T, equipping them with the skills to navigate complex engineering and manufacturing challenges with precision and efficiency.
At the end of this five-days course, participants will to:
Achieve a high level of proficiency in advanced GD&T principles and applications.
Master the interpretation and creation of complex composite feature control frames.
Develop expertise in the application of profile tolerancing for intricate shapes.
