Applications-Based GD&T DVD Training Series I

(per ASME Y14.5M-1994)

James D. Meadows

Complete Set:  $2,495.00


• Work with the course participants as they are taught the logic and analytical reasoning behind choosing the best controls, the best datums and the correct geometric tolerances.

• Course participants are encouraged to reason out the optimal approach for each assembly situation presented.
• Part after part, assemblies are actually toleranced from beginning to end with the course participants displaying the logic and knowledge they develop as the tapes progress.
• Every principle and concept is applied to actual complex assembly conditions.
• Uses a logical, focused methodology that reinforces your grasp of GD&T.

• Covers all the basic and advanced GD&T principles, concepts and symbology.
•James D. Meadows will lead you through a logical, step-by-step progression of geometric part definition, assembly analysis and the procedural requirements for manufacturing and inspection.
• Can be used for classroom instruction or individual study. You can learn at your own pace, at your work site or at home, and replay any portion of the DVDs at your leisure. A ‘must have’ reference tool for design, manufacturing or quality personnel.

Your Introduction to GD&T on multimedia Computer-Based Training.


We can send you a 30 minute Introductory DVD which will provide an overview of, and introduction to,  the complex design discipline of GD&T.  


The Introductory material also introduces your instructor, Jim Meadows (a nationally/internationally recognized "expert" on the topic and an ASME Y14.5.2 Certified Senior Level GD&T Professional),  the workshop materials, the Y14 and B89 standards to be discussed, and the logic behind the applications-based approach that is used in the training sessions.   It includes actual excerpts from several of the 12 sessions.


This is an excellent introduction to GD&T for upper management.


One should experience no difficulty when playing DVDs on Windows Media Player, a free download from the Microsoft web site.
