If you're flexible with travel, jump ahead by selecting one of the recommended facilities to the right. Otherwise, the form below helps drill down from state to city to a specific training facility for your Tolerance Design Training class.

Recommended States

Pre-enrollment is accepted until the minimum student requirement is met. Once enough students have signed up, then we will reach out to process your payment. If minimum enrollment is not attained, we may ask that you consider an alternate date or location. With that in mind, would any of the 4 states be possible for you? Facilities in these states either have a low minimum student requirement, or already have students signing up:

However, if travel is a limitation for you and none of the states above will work, don't worry. We have several options. And if none of those below suit your needs, feel free to contact us and make a request. We will do everything possible to accomodate. A common request we receive is to do on-site training for companies seeking to get several employees trained at the same time.



About Tolerance Design Training


Who is Tolerance Design Training for?

Tolerance Design is most often used by Product Design Engineers and their management. In our course, students learn:

Tolerance Design Training Course Overview:

How many billions of dollars do you suppose have been lost due to tolerances being either too tight or too loose? If they're too tight, manufacturing cost is unnecessarily high. And often the relationship between Product Engineering and Manufacturing is strained, damaged, and contentious. If tolerances are too loose, warranty cost will be high and relations with external customers will be damaged exposing your organization to market share being stolen by competitors. Who wants to live this way? Certainly, most of the companies we visit do no tolerance design at all relying on arbitrary block tolerances. It is absolutely certain that block tolerances are costing you. Probably a 6-7 digit annual cost depending on the size of your company.

The primary focus of our 1-day Introduction to Tolerance Design is conveying how to improve profit by setting tolerances at the optimal balance between external (warranty) cost and internal manufacturing cost. Sometimes this is attained by tightening tolerances. Sometimes it is attained by loosening them. Through presentation, examples, and hands-on exercises, students will learn through doing the following in a highly interactive and fun setting:

Prioritize. Tolerances based on their ability to impact product functionality / performance through application of Design of Experiments. This introductory course is limited to 2-factor designs; 2 levels of tolerance variation one high and one low. We do offer an Advanced Tolerance Design class to address 3-factor designs.
Analyze. Cost implications associated with changing tolerances through constructing quality loss functions, calculating average quality loss, and conducting cost benefit analysis.
Choose. Which tolerances to tighten or loosen and by how much.


Prerequisites. Basic:
Knowledge of Product Design / Engineering
Math: Algebra, Summations
Excel


Details.
All students receive a binder of slide print-outs.
Students will also be asked to evaluate the class.
Comprehension will be measured with a quiz. Passing grade is 80%. Students scoring less will receive a call from their instructor to review weak points.
Once understanding is confirmed, certificate proofs will be emailed for error-checking.
Certificates will then be printed and delivered by normal mail. Certificates are individually serialized with no expiration date although annual refresher training is recommended.


Schedule. The day is usually 8am-3pm including time for breaks and followed by a quiz. Lunch is between 30-60 minutes depending on client preference.

FMEA training via video conference was excellent with great real world examples. Material and format kept me engaged. The class was more than I expected. I (also) liked Measurement System Analysis training even though I was somewhat familiar with Gage R&R, I learned new techniques that can help me visualize the data quicker / easier. There were also areas where I was able to ask questions more applicable to my new role in this new company. Process Control training was informative and engaging. IATF training was excellent. Instructor was able to answer all of my questions and go above and beyond in assessing my own documentation. I now have not only a better understand of the subject, but I feel confident in the documents we send to our customers
