Our comprehensive Variation Analysis Courses focus on Dimensional Control Systems software solutions, and cover the fundamentals of tolerance analysis and data management. They’re designed to introduce users to the techniques and functions of each software solution.
The emphasis of this course is on 3-D variation analysis principles and techniques; and takes a hands on approach to learning, and illustrating, all of the concepts involved in variation analysis. Approximately 20 hours of software operation and 20 hours of real life software application on participants’ products.
By the end of this course, participants will be able to demonstrate the import functionality for retrieving CAD and data files; create QDM measurement templates; and learn techniques for populating quality templates for creating custom and automated reports.
Working on 2D drawings and designs? This 20-Hour course is a comprehensive GD&T course focused on review of the ASME-Y14.5M-1994 standard. It can help develop and strengthen your skills for dimensioning and tolerancing, as well as improve your current designs by letting you go through them with an ASME certified expert.
As a continuation of the previous GD&T course, this 20-Hour course is focused on practical applications of GD&T for real world experience.
Prerequisites: Basic GD&T, or equivalent experience.
This 20-Hour course is a comprehensive course focused on Dimensional Control Systems 8-step Dimensional Engineering Process. This course has been designed to provide a basic understanding of Dimensional Control as a science, and how it may be applied in both engineering and manufacturing environments to enhance quality and productivity.
Convey the theory behind the Dimensional Engineering Process combined with practical applications for each component of the process
Acquire the ability to define and recommend strategies based on pertinent design parameters
It is the intention of this course to demonstrate that Dimensional Control Procedures, when carefully adapted to an engineering environment, will result in improved quality, cost savings and timing. In addition, it teaches the foundation of Dimensional Management, the tools available within the Dimensional Management field and problem solving relating to Dimensional Management.
Prerequisites: Knowledge and understanding of GD&T and design/manufacturing principles.
Classes are available on demand at customer location or at DCS's Headquarters in Troy, Michigan, USA.
