Solid Model Tolerancing
(Based on ASME Y14.41)

Providing you have a basic understanding of Y14.5 Dimensioning and Tolerancing practices, this course explains the fundamental definitions, concepts, and methods from the ASME Y14.41 Standard on Digital Product Definition Data Practices. Utilizing the expertise of world-renowned GD&T expert and former Chairman of the Y14.41 Committee, Alex Krulikowski, the course focuses on understanding the benefits of a math-based product development process. Newly acquired learning is reinforced throughout the class with numerous practice problems.

  • What You Receive
  • Learning Objectives
  • Who Should Attend
  • Topical Outline

Each attendee receives a robust collection of learning resources including:

  • A Digital Product Definition Workbook, by Alex Krulikowski
  • An official certificate of completion

Thousands of students have learned GD&T through Alex Krulikowski’s textbooks, self-study courses, computer-based training, and online learning center. Students who attend courses like this one walk away with more than knowledge. They gain on-the-job skills because the learning materials are performance-based.

By attending this class, you will be able to:

  • Explain the benefits of a math-based product development process (PDP)
  • Describe the history, basic information, and definitions from the Y14.41 standard
  • Explain how to create product definition data sets
  • Describe data set requirements
  • List drawing model data set requirements
  • Explain various requirements that apply to annotated model data sets
  • List the requirements when using the annotated model method
  • Recognize the gaps, issues, and challenges of implementing a math-based PDP

Who Should Attend
This course is valuable for designers, engineers, and managers who are considering implementation of a math-based product development process.

In order to understand the course content, students should have a basic understanding of Y14.5 Dimensioning and Tolerancing practices.

The Product Development Process

  • The characteristics of current PDP’s

Requirements for the Annotated Model Method

  • The data requirements that apply to annotated model data sets
  • The design model requirements for the annotated model method
  • The requirements for views, annotation, query, and notes on annotated models

Tolerancing Using the Annotated Model Method

  • The requirements for plus-minus tolerances
  • The requirements for datum applications
  • The requirements for displaying geometric tolerances

Gaps, Issues, and Challenges of Implementing a Math-Based Development Process

  • The benefits of the Y14.41 standard
  • The major questions that companies need to answer to implement a math-based development process
  • The gaps and issues when trying to achieve a math-based product development process
