With the corporations
of the world becoming so diverse in ownership, many are searching for guidance
as to which standards to use. Are ISO and ASME standards equal...or is one
better than the other?
This book compares
the most important differences and similarities between the ASME Y14.5M-1994
dimensioning and tolerancing standard and ISO standards and technical reports on
dimensioning and tolerancing practices. Unlike other products similar to this
on the market, all references in this book from ISO and ASME standards are
absolutely up to date as of October 2006. Since many of the most important ISO
documents used in the writing of this text were issued in 2004 or later, dont
make the mistake of purchasing out-of-date booklets on this topic.
Included within this book are references from 16 different ISO and ASME
standards and technical reports and two texts written by James D. Meadows that
relate to dimensioning and tolerancing symbology, terms, definitions and
Every section lists the appropriate ISO and ASME
standards from which the information was drawn. Readers will not only have
an immediate knowledge of the technical comparison between practices of ISO and
ASME but also where to go (standard or technical report number) to seek further
information. The comparisons are easy to follow and fully explained
through written text and pictorial illustrations.
