Advanced Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing Seminar


Advanced Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing goes beyond the basic program, placing emphasis on a more in-depth treatment of the fundamental principles of geometric dimensioning and tolerancing.

Benefits of Training

At the end of the session you will have the skills to successfully convey design intent, improve quality and reduce costs in the design to manufacturing process.

How the Program Works

You will learn unique applications of true position and extended datum principles. Through lectures, discussions and workshops, you will better understand and interpret the effects of RFS (regardless of feature size) and MMC(maximum material condition), as well as learn its impact on functional gage principles.

Program Outline

You will learn about

  • Review of basic geometrics
  • Position extended principles
  • Extended datum principles
  • Position with non-cylindrical features
  • Application of least material condition
  • Practical applications through workshops


Training sessions are comprised of lecture, hands-on workshops using actual products, written exercises, large group discussions, and PowerPoint presentation. Attendees receive a copy of Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing by AL Neumann, which covers the 1994 standard reaffirmed in 1999.

Who Should Attend

Draftspersons, tool designers, technical inspectors, machine shop and tool room supervisors, manufacturing and project engineers and others seeking to gain more in-depth knowledge of GD&T principles.
