Course outline:

Tolerancing Optimization

  • Create tolerance stack-up analysis for both plus/minus toleranced dimensions and geometric tolerances
  • Calculating boundaries using MMC, LMC and RFS Material Condition modifiers and apply transformation principles to different tolerancing scenarios to ensure optimal design intent
  • Analysis using single-segment and composite feature control frames using Position 

Intermediate Concepts of Tolerance Analysis

  • Derived inner and outer boundaries using floating and fixed fastener formulas
  • Create number charts for stack-up analysis using a variety of geometric tolerances, basic dimensions, resultant conditions, virtual conditions and plus and minus toleranced dimensions
  • Calculate the effects of angular stack-up contributors
  • Calculate minimum and maximum gaps for assemblies
  • Do stack-up analysis for floating and fixed fastener situations for various applications
  • Analysis and implications of different datum reference frames and implications of form errors in the analysis

Advanced concepts of tolerance analysis

  • Understand Vector-Loop analyses with geometric dimensioning and tolerancing
  • Monty Carlo Simulations

Implications of GD&T for Six-sigma initiatives and product reliability
