Dr. Greg HetlandDr. Greg Hetland has 30+ years' experience in the Aerospace, Defense and Commercial industries with extensive expertise in the Mechanical and Precision Engineering fields as an Engineer, Manager, Consultant, Educator and Author.

Dr. Hetland is a recognized leader in the dimensional tolerancing and physical metrology fields. He has extensive success in visionary transformation and establishing and achieving corporate technology goals, with a proven track record of influencing external development initiatives achieved through collaborations with companies, universities and national laboratories throughout the world.

Dr. Hetland has extensive technical society affiliations. He is recognized worldwide as chairman and member of U.S. committees as well as U.S. representative on international standards' development in the areas of physical metrology, dimensional tolerancing and uncertainty analysis, with emphasis in the sub-micrometer regime.

Given the state of global technology and growing technological constraints, such as miniaturization and tolerance truncation, the world requires higher precision in the engineering modeling and analytical tools and the critical need to expand current knowledge and principles within all engineering disciplines. Based on this critical and global need, Dr. Hetland consults in the areas of corporate technology forecasting, advanced measurement development, advanced mechanical design and modeling techniques, physical measurement strategies, uncertainty analysis, employee development planning, external technology development collaborations, analysis, and recommendations based on technology trends.

Dr. Hetland is an active, contributing member of several national and international standards' development committees and working groups. For a listing, click here.
