Pressure Relief Valve Section View. They get influenced by the drawing, its correctness, completeness and alignment with the quality objectives of the company. Add to it the requirement that ideas need to be translated to product and brought to market faster, the situation looks untenable.

If we look at the Plunger that is housing the spring and located inside the housing Bodythe sequence of assembly is evident. All of the above criteria are equally important.

Error (Forbidden)

In our example, since the Cylindrical and Conical features are located concentric to Datum A, they are at Zero Basic Dimension and hence not shown. There is increasing pressure on design to address all these challenges.


First Time Right is becoming mandatory for the manufacturing industry to save costs and increase profitability.

This drawing creates more confusion regarding the setup for Manufacturing and Inspection since it does not clarify how the designer intended to control.

5 Steps to creating GD&T Drawings for Superior Quality

The choice and order of Datums Selection need to be in alignment with the Quality objectives we intend to protect. This step requires knowledge of process capability existing with the organization or suppliers.

Ttorials there are errors on the drawings, assumptions made due to the incompleteness of the drawing representation, then the organization bleeds in terms of re-work, rejections, recalls and delays that cost money.

Specify Tolerance Zone Boundaries for Part Features in terms of shape and size along with specific rules for compliance. This step of identifying the Datums is critical to avoid downstream Quality issues.

5 Steps to GD&T Enabled Drawings for Higher Product Quality and Lower Cost

Drawing is incomplete without this step. Latest posts by EGS India see all. Plunger used in Pressure Relief Valve. Define Part features that would serve as origin with specific directions for measurement. Additionally the dimensioning schema should have the least number of dimensions between the datum reference and features that form a rutorials of the measurable Design for Quality Objective.


This process of identifying the assembly process and sequence enables the selection and prioritization of the Datums. Every department in a manufacturing organization has to deal with drawings either directly or indirectly.

Let us look at the example of a Pressure Relief Valve shown in Figure below: This step ensures that management is provided with alternatives in terms of costs, choice of suppliers and investment in machinery and dg&t lines to achieve desired levels of quality in an objective manner.
