Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing (GD&T) Workshop

Ensuring the reliability of hi-tech products can only be achieved by design engineering processes that properly consider the products’ geometric and dimensional deviations. This level of detail is vital today to achieve the competitive advantage resulting from reduced re-design cycles, cost-savings at the prototype stage, minimization of non-conformities, more cost-effective manufacturing processes, and reduced time-to-market.

Truly robust design is engineered through the integrated management of tolerances. This involves tolerance propagation analysis along with a geometric and dimensional description that complies with the latest international standards (ISO-GPS and ASME/GD&T). These enable the creation of complete sets of tolerance parameters that can be uniformly interpreted, a key aspect in data digitalization to leverage process automation. Engineers can use these tools during the design phase to identify the tolerances that will have the greatest impact on the product’s functional requirements. This information can be used to make the essential corrections while increasing the other tolerances to accommodate Production’s requirement to limit costs.

This workshop will demonstrate how companies can leverage state-of-the-art GD&T methods and instruments to create more robust hi-tech products while containing production costs.

It will present the best methods and instruments available to identify the ideal compromise between the Designer’s demands to meet the end-product requirements, and Manufacturing’s need to rapidly and cost-effectively produce and assemble the components.
