Geometric measurements - Company Course in Geometric Tolerances - GPS
2 days totalling 16 hours of instruction.
Max. 15 participants
The course is designed both for companies that seek to improve their knowledge of GPS tolerances, or as an introduction to the area. The course is based on your company's own drawings as well as your specific concerns and challenges. There will be a series of minor tasks where the participants themselves will set targets for the drawings. Participants are part of an entire chain of people who have contact with the drawings, encompassing sales / purchasing / design / production preparation / quality / installers / production and finally control. They must all have the same understanding of the drawing.
The company course ensures that all parts of the company are aware of GPS tolerances so that the drawings are utilized optimally. The course also provides an opportunity for designers, production and quality personnel to discuss and analyse the objective of new drawings and to modify existing ones.
