DRF 128 - Geometric TolerancingCredits: 2
Instructional Contact Hours: 3
Explains the principles and methods of geometric dimensioning and tolerancing using the current ASME/ANSI 14.5 standard. Introduces the science of precision measurement, focusing on accuracy and application as well as problem solving as it relates to dimensional metrology. Includes topics of measurement processes and feasibility, industry standards, and operation of measurement equipment including the Coordinate Measuring Machine. Credit may be earned in either DRF 128 or SKDR 128 but not both.
Prerequisite(s): DRF 121 (or SKDR 101 ) or permission of instructor
