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, Dallas 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.

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

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.



Excellent choice! Dallas is home to 21 Fortune 500 companies including Exxon Mobil, JC Penney, AT&T, Texas Instruments, and others. With the construction of multiple railroads, Dallas became a booming trading center especially for cotton attracting workers from neighboring states. Skyscrapers emerged early. Petroleum was discovered around Dallas establishing the city as a market hub. Communications, Engineering and manufacturing evolved from WWII. City inventions include the Superbowl, and frozen margarita machine. Local foods include BBQ, Mexican, Tex-Mex, and margaritas. Have fun and take time to enjoy the city after your MBBC Tolerance Design Training class.

I had extremely limited knowledge of GD&T before this course. I learned a lot in a strong course that allowed room for questions, example, and provided the space to learn the course material to the best of my ability.
