This fully interactive course explains how to correctly interpret engineering drawings. It will improve a participant’s understanding of print reading and result in more effective communication on the job.

This course helps participants learn about the creation, interpretation and use of Engineering drawings, codes and standards, including manual and computer-aided design practices.

All over the years the industry has accumulated its experience in standards and codes which stipulates the minimum requirements to have a safe and economic products serving to the benefit of the project stakeholders. Every company should select from industry standards and codes and develop its standard which is its internal law responding to the minimum requirements normally set by the regulations and laws in the country where the company operates. The industry and company standards are interrelated in a way to build on the accumulated experience and mutual benefit for each party.

Course Objectives

Upon successful completion of this course, the delegates will be able to:

  • Define and use techniques of engineering drawings
  • Identify the types of engineering drawings
  • Use the appropriate standards and documents specified on engineering drawings
  • Acquire the basic part definition required on engineering drawings
  • Understand the ASME standards and common industry practices.
  • Practice, create and interpret the principles of engineering drawings, codes and standards.
  • Apply best practice manufacturing and assembly guidelines to their designs
  • Understand the capabilities and limitations of the main production processing groups.
  • Problem-solve and work in teams on design projects.
  • Apply process selection, component costing, manufacturing planning and design strategies to their projects.
  • Provide trainees with the basic knowledge of industry standards and standardization bodies as well as the concept of standards, codes and specifications.
  • Explain how to read and understand the articles and language of standards and codes. At the end of this practical workshop, participants would have Practical hands-on experience creating and reading engineering drawings.
