Addendum to Course Description
GD&T I is presents a subset of GD&T that will be of use to beginning machinists.
Students interested in continuing into Metrology or Engineering should also complete GD&T II
A Practical Guide to Geometric Tolerancing per ASME Y14.5-2009 by Scott Neumann and Al Neumann. ISBN 087263865-0
Intended Outcomes for the course
Upon completion of the course students should be able to:
Read and understand basic GDT symbols on a print.
Explain basic GDT concepts.
Identify minimum and maximum material conditions.
Measure and verify position tolerances with applied material conditions.
Set up and use basic rectangular datum reference frames.
This course is intended to provide a basic introduction aimed at beginning machinists
Course Activities and Design
MCH 115A will be presented by means of audio visual presentations, demonstrations, and research activities. The course activities and design emphasize the development of skills and knowledge outcomes prescribed by established industry standards. The identified outcomes will be achieved by means of individual and team activities.
Outcome Assessment Strategies
The final grade will be based on the average of a mid-term and a final exam and one lab exercise. The exams present problems related to tolerances similar to those presented in the textbook exercises. The lab exercise will give the student the opportunity to practice techniques covered in the class.
