The Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing in 2007 Workbook and Answerbook offers a wide variety of practical examples and worksheets that demonstrate the concepts in the corresponding textbook also written by Mr. Meadows (Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing in 2007).  These two books cover all facets of geometric dimensioning and tolerancing (basic through advanced applications), tolerance stack-up analysis, statistical tolerancing, measurement, and the design, dimensioning and tolerancing of functional gages and fixtures.


This workbook/answerbook includes dimensioning and tolerancing applications problems commonly faced by professionals working in design, manufacturing, inspection and gaging disciplines.  Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing in 2007 Workbook and Answerbook supplies worksheets covering many product types and gives detailed explanations of their answers.  It presents the solutions in an easy-to-understand manner.  This book also includes a section of word problems that would help prepare anyone interested in taking the ASME Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing Professional Certification exam.


It encompasses all aspects of industry and complies with the latest ASME/ANSI/ISO standards.  It explains the proper application and interpretation of geometric tolerancing requirements, their analysis and measurement.
Written by an acknowledged “expert” in the field, Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing in 2007 and the Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing in 2007 Workbook and Answerbook are indispensable guides for design, manufacturing, inspection, quality engineers, project and process engineers and managers.  It also provides important insights for upper-level undergraduate, graduate and continuing-education students in these disciplines.

Included in this Workbook/Answerbook is 1) an Overview of Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing, 2) Applications Problems, 3) Word Problems, 4) an Answerbook and 5) a Reference Section with additional illustrations and explanations.   Just some of the topics covered are:


-Symbols, Rules and Formulas


-Charts that Define and Compare the 14 Geometric Characteristic Symbols


-MMC, LMC, RFS and the Boundaries They Generate


-Datum Feature Selection


-Formulas and Practice in Calculating Geometric Tolerances for Mating Parts
