Based on standards maintained by both ASME and ISO, GD&T has become a critical methodology for any manufacturing company that values reducing waste and increasing production efficiency.
WARRENDALE, Pa. (PRWEB) March 13, 2019
SAE International announces that all Effective Training Inc. (ETI) geometric dimensioning and tolerancing (GD&T) training products now will be sold under the SAE brand.
SAE International acquired ETI five years ago to add deep GD&T training capability to its existing Professional Development portfolio.
GD&T is a standardized system of symbols and definitions used on engineering drawings to describe size, form, orientation, and location tolerances of part features. Such a system is used to ensure that parts are manufactured exactly how engineering intended. Based on standards maintained by both ASME and ISO, GD&T has become a critical methodology for any manufacturing company that values reducing waste and increasing production efficiency.
SAE International’s GD&T program was initially developed by one of the world’s foremost experts on GD&T standards and practice, Alex Krulikowski. ETI’s original founder and owner, Krulikowski, opened the company in 1984 and trained thousands over the next three decades.
SAE International offers GD&T training and products based on ASME Y14 and ISO standards. The courses are designed using adult learning principles and utilize a series of goals and objectives that reinforce concepts and produce measurable results. The program includes instructor-led public and on-site workshops, and many of the courses are available on-demand. The GD&T products include textbooks, workbooks, and charts, all of which are available for purchase online.
Discover why SAE International is the authoritative source for GD&T knowledge, professional development and training, textbooks, job tools, software, and reference guides.
