Tolerance Stacks Self-Study
Proficiency in tolerance accumulation studies (also called stacks)
separates the exceptional engineers from the rest. More than
simply the study of dimensional relationships within assemblies,
tolerance stacks are the key to creating robust, efficient,
and successful designs. Stacks skills separate the exceptional
engineers from the rest.
For the first time, these skills are
available in a self-study format. If you’re a designer--or a
product or process engineer--this course will enhance your career. The course
includes 39 performance objectives to be mastered and more than 50 practice
stacks to calculate.
- Solve stack
- Work examples
- Take quizzes
- Chart your
Applications Workbook contains 25 practice stacks that will enhance
your skills in optimizing part designs by choosing design goals.
The detailed help section reveals hints, partial answers, and total
solutions as needed. It also contains a personal progress chart
and complete solutions for all tests, problems, and quizzes. The
Drawing Package details two complete product designs to analyze.
This package is a resource that will pay dividends for years to
Program Goal: Calculate stacks in drawings using coordinate
dimensioning and geometric tolerancing controls. Use stacks to create
designs that maximize fit, function, and return on investment. Optimize
part tolerances for design function and manufacturing processes.
This product is a valuable tool for: Intended as a course
in geometric tolerancing, this is primarily for engineers, designers,
inspectors, process engineers, machine builders, and anyone with
an engineering-oriented quality function. Stacks are taught from
a mathematical basis, so that all tolerances can be accounted for.
Skill level needed: Students should have basic blueprint
reading skills and have completed courses in GD&T fundamentals and
Product highlights: Stresses applications that are found
on the job in real-life industrial situations. The practice stacks
are from actual drawings that are provided in a separate Drawing
Package. It includes a skills assessment tool and exercises at the
end of each chapter to practice the concepts.
