AIAG Advanced Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing (GD&T)

Apply and interpret the concepts and benefits of specifying and dimensioning products using functional quotation, tolerance of form, and position.

In this two-day training participants will construct a clear understanding of the existing paradox within the industry: "Why is this part characteristic non-conforming to the specification but the part mounts still function well in the product?" or "Why is the part within the specification, but doesn't mount or work properly with the customer?"

Throughout the course, each participant will have conditions to interpret and dimensions to specify using functional quotation and tolerances of form and position.
