GD&T: Application and Interpretation, based on the ASME Y14.5-2009 standard, is targeted to programs that require a study of geometric dimensioning and tolerancing as related to design, manufacturing, or inspection. Revised with readability in mind, this highly illustrated text contains topics ranging from the fundamentals of dimensioning to the extended principles of tolerance application and interpretation. The author is certified by ASME as a Senior Level Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing Professional and has participated in the development of national and international standards since 1986.
Thorough explanations of requirements in the ASME Y14.5-2009 standard are presented.
Extensive use of color in illustrations reinforces and clarifies information.
Review questions and application problems, found at the end of each chapter, test comprehension and reinforce learning.

Bruce A. Wilson - has an international reputation as a leader in Dimensional Management and Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing (GD&T). He is certified by the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) as a Senior Level Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing Professional. He has more than 20 years participation in ASME subcommittee Y14.5 standards development, and for more than 14 years served as the leader of the positional tolerances section of the standard.
His consulting experience includes teaching GD&T in Europe and the United States. He has industrial and academic experiences that provide the expertise and practical knowledge necessary to write a dimensioning and tolerancing text that is technically correct and applicable to today's industrial needs.
Industrial experience includes responsibilities ranging from design engineer to program manager and industrial consultant. He is recognized as a Technical Fellow in The Boeing Company. Design engineering experience includes mechanical, precision mechanisms, electromechanical, optics packaging, electronics packaging, pneumatics, and aircraft structures. Experience has taken place in companies ranging from 20 to 150,000 employees.
Extensive design experience has provided a thorough exposure to dimensioning and tolerancing requirements as they apply to various applications. He is an industrial leader in the discipline of dimensional management. He has led teams to establish product requirements, complete three dimensional variation analysis, apply tolerances to detail parts and assemblies, communicate requirements to production, and implement quality assurance measures related to dimensional variation. His variation analyses and assembly concepts have resulted in product cost savings greater than 50% and elimination of assembly tooling costs for major aircraft structure. The processes he explored are now implemented widely. Mr. Wilson is an industrial leader and has multiple United States patents for calculation methods used to assess variation effects.
Mr. Wilson has contributed to the development of national and international standards since 1986 through his participation and membership on the ASME Y14.5 subcommittee. He has served as a member of the ASME Y14, Y14.1, Y14.2, Y14.3, and Y14.5 subcommittees. He has participated in United States technical advisory groups for ISO dimensioning standards.
Training and consulting experience includes curriculum development, teaching, management of training programs and instructor development. Areas of concentration include Dimensioning and Tolerancing for engineering and manufacturing, Computer-Aided Design, Dimensional Management, and New Designer Training. Training programs have been taught to design engineers, manufacturing engineers, industrial engineers, machinists, inspectors, supplier quality managers, and managers.
