Business Planning for 2013 to
Aggressively Enhance Technical Training
Precision GD&T

University IconUnderstanding the proper interpretation or intent of GD&T is not equally shared in all disciplines of the process chain. This starts at management and moves down through design, engineering, manufacturing to inspection. We all assume we know GD&T, but the doors of knowledge are closed through non-participation and assumptions.

Today our education system fails to address this important aspect of the full system. Many engineers come out of school knowing how to use the latest software and tools, but not the fundamental knowledge GD&T addresses.

IIGDT has developed a training program to address weak points in the process chain.

  • Empower your technical employees with precision engineering skill-sets that enable them to achieve current & future technology challenges. Advancing skill-sets in "Precision-GD&T" will support this empowerment.
  • Precision GD&T is the core foundational engineering language to enable technical disciplines.
  • Nothing is more important than giving every employee the skillsets necessary to optimally porform their jobs.

Education in manufacturing no longer addresses GD&T period: Inspectors often take a quick one-day course and they are expected to be masters of the GD&T universe: Very disheartening.

When the entire process incorporates a full understanding of GD&T your engineering design group specs products that can be manufactured, assembled and inspected as intended. There will be no ambiguity only true clarity.

The benefit is increased quality, reduced manufacturing costs and most important, providing the customer a product to be proud of.
