GD&T For MBD Courses

Course Overview 

2D drawings are evolving to 3D models, essential to any company adopting digital manufacturing and MBD. Invest in your design team’s GD&T skills, critical to the MBD implementation process. GD&T and MBD experts guide registrants through the What, Why, and How to apply GD&T for MBD. 


Who Should Attend 

Recommended for engineering professionals in any industry segment presently working in or interested in learning more about the role of Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing in: 

  • Digital Manufacturing
  • Digital Twin
  • Model-Based Definition
  • Model-Based Enterprise
  • Digital Product Definition
  • Technical Data Packages

Jennifer Herron, CEO of Action Engineering, and Scott Neumann, Senior Partner and Chief Project Engineer at TCI, are MBD and GD&T experts, respectively. This will be their third year of collaboration, combining their areas of expertise and capitalizing on their exemplary teaching skills. They help write the ASME standards for product definition and GD&T and provide additional MBD / MBE and GD&T training and implementation services.     

Reflecting on comments and feedback provided by recent course attendees, both Jennifer and Scott agree: “The need is great for this type of hands-on learning to further technical proficiency in both MBD and GD&T applications. These live, hands-on classroom formats advance conversations and capabilities before the conclusion of the three-day course. At the start of the course, we always have at least one person who struggles with the benefits of Geometric Tolerancing for MBD; by the end of the week it all becomes clear.”
