Covers methods used to determine the quality of manufactured components. Topics include quality concepts, inspection planning, measurement error, repeatability and reproducibility studies, computer-aided inspection technology, coordinate metrology systems, and geometric dimensioning and tolerancing.
Mandatory six-hour Saturday plant tour. Note: BCIT reserves the right to cancel courses. In the event of a part-time studies course cancellation, you will be notified at least two business days prior to the course start. Please ensure that your contact information is current.
Upon successful completion of the course, the student will be able to:
Analyze a given product and customer requirements and derive a framework for detailed characteristics and specifications.
Apply a step-by-step procedure for planning for quality.
Plan inspection in terms of characteristics, amount of inspection, methods, personnel, locations, decisions, errors and documentation.
Review control plan examples from industry and understand the information contained in them.
Understand the basic purpose and procedures for a gage variation study.
Perform calculations for gage repeatability and reproducibility.
Explain gage analysis concepts including repeatability, reproducibility, stability, capability, accuracy, deflection, shifts, drifts, and intervals.
Explain the forces driving the development of advanced technology in the quality industry and the challenges that are present.
List the categories of quality costs and classify company activities into those categories.
List various dimensioning and tolerancing approaches and their advantages and disadvantages
Describe the main advantages of the Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing (GD&T) system over coordinate tolerancing.
Decode symbols used in drawings following the ASME Y14.5-1994 dimensioning and tolerancing standard
Perform calculations using basic GD&T concepts including Rule #1, material condition, bonus tolerance, virtual condition, position tolerancing, and conversion of coordinate values.
Explain the impact of GD&T implementation on inspection in terms of terminology and symbology, personnel requirements, equipment and methods, and communication requirements.
