GD&T and Tolerance Stack-Up Analysis – PUBLIC WORKSHOPS
December 5-9, 2011
Bevill Conference Center, Huntsville, AL.
Courses are 2 ½ days each—–take one or both.
GD&T [per the ASME Y14.5-2009 and 1994 standards and the differences between them] and TOLERANCE STACK-UP ANALYSIS. Both courses presented by GDT ‘expert’ James D. Meadows. Discounts available for govt. employees and contractors and multiple registrations.

1) Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing (per ASME Y14.5-2009 and 1994 and the differences between them)
December 5-7, 2011
An introductory, but comprehensive, applications-based training program for all technical personnel who interpret and apply geometric dimensioning and tolerancing. This course covers GDT principles, rules and applications, as well as the new Y14,5-2009 symbology. Participants will gain a comprehensive knowledge of GD&T techniques but also, through the use of lectures, discussion, case histories and application problems, the ability to apply these techniques to their product line.

2) Tolerance Stack-Up Analysis.
December 7-9, 2011
Participants will be trained to apply tolerance stack-up analysis techniques, from the very simple to more complex situations. Both plus and minus and geometrically toleranced assemblies will be examined and stack-up analysis taught and practiced on each. Some concepts taught: loop analysis, number charting, virtual condition, resultant condition, inner/outer boundaries, minimum airspace, maximum wall thickness, maximum interference, minimum and maximum overall dimensions, fixed and floating fastener assembly conditions, projected tolerance zones, the logic of stack-up analysis, statistical tolerancing, etc. Learn a system of logic and mathematics to analyze tolerances; Calculate statistical tolerance using a variety of methods and learn how to re-integrate these tolerances back into the assembly’s details, etc.
