This one hour overview will show the quality, cost and delivery benefits of making Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing (GD&T) an integral part of the Product Development/Delivery Process. GD&T is not new, but there is a ‘newness’ about it. Developments in CAD and CMM technology, ISO Standards and Statistical Process Control have brought GD&T once again to the forefront of manufacturing. Participants will see that GD&T is a common language that may be used to improve communication between design, quality, manufacturing, suppliers and customers. When used properly, GD&T will get the right questions asked early in the program, simplify the engineering drawing and directly relate customer requirements to product specifications and process control. Through down-to-earth examples, humor and uncommon sense, an overview of this powerful tool will be presented. Outline of the presentation: (60 minutes)  GD&T definition  GD&T’s role in Concurrent Manufacturing  How GD&T fits current and future technology  GD&T used to:  Relate Design, Manufacturing and Quality  Define Cp and Cpk  Reduce o Scrap o Rework o Engineering changes o “Use as is” decisions o Cycle time o Time to market  Robust Designs  The Role of GD&T in Six Sigma Design  Examples  Summary
