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, Austin students learn:

Tolerance Design Training Course Overview:

In an interactive and fun setting. learn how to calculate the intersection point between internal manufacturing cost and external warranty cost. 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.

Knowledge of Product Design / Engineering

Austin

Silicon Hills - Keep Austin Weird

Excellent choice! Austin was recommended to serve as the capital due to the area's pleasant hills, waterways, and convenience as a crossroads between Galveston, Santa Fe, Mexico, and the Red River. A capital building and granite dam were built to power a street car line. Parks were established. The Texas Oil Boom happened. High-tech semiconductor manufacturing and higher education evolved. Music become prominent. And, Austin has flourished becoming America's 11th, and Texas' 4th largest city by population, and one of America's fastest-growing large cities. As such, many fun after-class options exist including the 6th Street bar scene, music festivals, ballet, museums, the LBJ Presidential Library, shopping, a massive bat colony, and Lake Travis.

Six sigma training experience exceeded my expectations. The course was easy to understand, and the Material was written for a novice, with practice example from our office. I had some problems with MiniTab, however, the help I received from our Master Black Belts was great and helped me a lot. This has been a great and valuable experience that helped me understand all topics related with this methodology. He showed lot of tools, templates and information that you will definitely use lots.
