New ISO Geometric Product Specifications (GPS) Basic Course Now Available From Sigmetrix
Capture, transfer and retain essential product and process knowledge with a new computerized course
MCKINNEY, Texas, December 9, 2021 / PRNewswire-PRWeb / – Sigmetrix, experts in mechanical variation management, today announced the availability of its new computer-based training course (CBT) on ISO Geometric Product Specifications (GPS).
“Our goal is to help companies capture, transfer and retain essential knowledge about products and processes,” said Stephen werst, Director of Customer Success and Product Development at Sigmetrix. âOrganizations generally have a hard time training their employees to properly deal with the realities of handling mechanical variations. Finding a comprehensive and consistent approach to this training can be difficult. We recognize this challenge and have spent the past 20 years developing software and training to do just this. “
As businesses go global, the manufacturing of a product line may move from one country to another or expand to another country. While there is information about a product from the original production line, if you take the product elsewhere, you may lose valuable data or why a product was made that way. Correct application of GPS to ISO standards, or GD&T to ASME standards, can help clarify the manufacturing process and provide the âwhyâ of your tolerances. By using Sigmatrix solutions, you can:
Reduce the impact of workforce attrition and loss of ‘tribal knowledge’
Democratize the depth and breadth of understanding
Make data and information easily accessible to everyone
Allow a coherent / common language and approach
GPS contains several rules, concepts, tools, and techniques that, without proper implementation guidance, can be overwhelming and confusing. This new course aims to provide an in-depth examination of GPS from several perspectives, including design, inspection, and engineering.
Introduction to functional sizing and tolerancing
Understand the gaps in sizing and +/- tolerancing, and how GPS eliminates these gaps
Detailed explanations of references and reference systems
Implicit and explicit characteristics, size characteristics, geometric tolerances and tolerance zones
Separate sections for detailed explanations of controls for shape, orientation, location, runout and profile tolerance symbols
Examination of the material requirements and their impact on the associated tolerance zones
Coverage of general tolerances, part edge specifications, surface texture and finish, and pattern tolerancing
The course consists of a total of 16 modules accompanied by course videos and interactive quizzes, allowing students to assess their understanding of the material.
