CETOL 6σ Software Training – Contents Below
CETOL 6σ Software Training is a 3-day* class covering the CETOL 6σ Basics such as interface, variation inputs, best practices for assembly analysis modeling, functional dimensioning including GD&T, validation of analysis, interpreting results and reporting.
Students are encouraged to bring an assembly model to class. The model is used to construct a real, live analysis while learning CETOL 6σ modeling techniques that are inherent to a given product. Upon completion of the class, students will return to the workplace with analysis available for review. Class size for the instructor-led programs is a maximum of eight students. Sigmetrix training facility is located in McKinney, Texas just north of Dallas.
Course Description: Sigmetrix offers CETOL 6σ Tolerance Analysis Training for individual students. Topics covered include an overview of worst-case and statistical analysis concepts, the CETOL 6σ user interface, fundamental statistics, variation inputs, best practices for assembly analysis modeling, functional dimensioning including GD&T, the complete tolerance analysis modeling process, modeling validation, results interpretation, and reporting. Lectures, demonstrations, student exercises, and modeling on customer assemblies are included in the agenda.
Course Objectives: This course will teach students fundamental software and assembly knowledge required to create accurate variation models using CETOL functionality. Additionally, we encourage students to analyze their own assembly during class time, so that “real work” is also accomplished! For the optimal learning experience, students should bring an assembly model to class and begin constructing a real, live analysis while learning CETOL 6σ modeling techniques that are inherent to the customer’s product.
