March 2011 Newsletter Title
GATRAD and IIGDT

Today demanding designs push the envelope of understanding the tolerance allowance on complex parts. Tolerancing Optimization & Analysis is designed to apply tolerancing optimization techniques using multiple analytical methods to a wide variety of components and sub-assemblies, from the very simple to the more complex analysis.

IIGDT has identified tolerance optimization as an important, and often overlooked, step in the design, manuafacturing and conformance evaluation of production.

Join us in this informative course designed for all involved in the design and manufacturing process. While we provide training to our internal manufacturing systems, we must also task vendors that are assigned the responsibility to manufacture components with the same knowledge. Quality is best served during the process not as a by-product through inspections. Bring your vendors up-to-date by inviting them to join you in this informative seminar.

March, June and September
GD&T Tolerance Optimization & Analysis is held in Plymouth, Minnesota. See our schedule.


Tolerance Optimization & Analysis is just one course offered in the suite of GD&T Seminar Series offered by IIGDT. To fully appreciate the impact of GD&T on your process, we suggest making the seminar series a regular tool to train everyone involved in the process.

Visit our uniquely taylored program called Eight Tracks to GD&T Expertise to appreciate the importance of embracing GD&T as a corporate culture. These courses are the foundation to understanding and implementing GD&T throughout the job function starting with design through acceptance in inspection. Add to that the importance of manufacturing being a new global presence and you can understand the importance of speaking the same GD&T language.
