Duration 60 Mins
Level Intermediate
Webinar ID IQW20H0874

  • What is GD&T
  • What is the value of GD&T
  • How does the value increase in early phases
  • GD&T as a vehicle of communication
  • Bad in, bad out – the importance of optimizing GD&T
  • Use Case Example

Overview of the webinar

Why is GD&T – Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing – important to incorporate into your design process?

This session will discuss the value of GD&T as part of your design team and early design process, showing the value of utilizing proper GD&T language throughout PLM in order to drive quality through the organization.

Who should attend?

  • Designer
  • Manufacturing Engineer
  • Quality Engineer
  • Mechanical Engineer
  • Dimensional Engineer
  • Production Engineer

Why should you attend?

Considering investing into GD&T? Is your organization already going in that direction?This event provides valuable insight into the reasons why GD&T is adopted, and the pitfalls that need to be avoided when doing so in order to actually realize the value promised by GD&T trainers and ASME.

Join to learn about the value of GD&T and why your organization should be using it earlier in the design phase. Use this information internally to help communicate the need for proper GD&T training and application. See how current software tools make it easier for designers to begin optimizing and applying GD&T during early design phases.Find out how GD&T becomes a bridge to manufacturing, creating clear communication across the organization.
