Customized Print Reading for Professionals

Production workers are often trained using Blueprint reading programs. In the summer of 2007, the MASCPA conducted a similar program requested by two local manufacturers for their customer service and purchasing personnel. These individuals were in constant telephone contact with personnel in other companies using product drawings during the conversation. Reviews from the program participants were excellent.
We are now offering a customized program to interested manufacturers for professionals that have no or minimal experience in reading blueprints. Course Parameters: This basic twenty hour course, conducted in two hour sessions once a week, includes orthographic projection, types of lines, features, dimensioning, sections, views, formats, math calculations, and other aspects necessary to ‘read’ a typical manufacturing drawing, and to communicate that information to another person over the telephone. Abundant “In-class” exercises are used to re-enforce the various aspects of drawing interpretation. An assessment will be conducted in the last session for the participants to evaluate their grasp of the presented materials. The course participants are encouraged to bring some company drawings to the education sessions to share and learn from others in the group. This aspect of the course is particularly beneficial to participants whose companies produce products to a variety of customer requirements. Note: This customized program does include the basics of geometric dimensioning and tolerancing.
Who Should Attend: Purchasing, engineering and customer service professionals.
