FrederickTolmie. Draftsman,Designer, Mechanical Engineer. [email protected] ExecutiveSummary: My employment as a senior draftsman and product designerwith such luminaries as Shakespeare Marine Electronics, McDonnellDouglas Astronautics and the Harris Corporation led to joiningRockwell Collins (then, Rockwell International) as a senior designer,and for extraordinary performance promoted to senior engineer. Afterappointment as Rockwellâ€™s Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing(GDT) leader, membership in the American Society of MechanicalEngineers (ASME) and during my work for the ASME Y14.41 committee, myexperience-based capabilities expanded to include fabricationpractices, producibility studies and first article inspectionmethods. This spanning of the domains provisioned me to be anexceptionally practical-minded and highly appreciated GDT educatorwhile I created and contributed to company, national andinternational standards for design engineering practices. Teachingfabrication and quality assurance persons how best to comprehend andact upon the product definition of the design activity has taught memuch about their domainsâ€™ activities in return. Today my work as aprofessional draftsman, aerospace designer and design engineer iswell informed by these mutual studies. The results are design modelconstructs and digital engineering drawings that improve everyoneâ€™scapability for confident right action upon such complex sets ofinformation. 25+ years of fast and accurate 3D design model construction and engineering drawing creation using AutoDesk AutoCad, Dassault Systems SolidWorks and Siemens PLM NX Computer-Aided Design (CAD) systems. 20+ years an expert in both using and teaching GDT, including the current ASME Y14.5-2009 standard. 20+ years abiding knowledge about fabrication tools and processes for aluminum casting and plastic injection molding, complex sheet metal punching and forming, machined and turned workpieces. This includes practice with open setup and coordinate measuring machine (CMM) methods of inspection and validation for finished articles. 20+ years an informative and engaging public speaker teaching design fundamentals and GDT to thousands of college students, designers, mechanical engineers, machinists, part programmers and article inspectors. 15+ years performing assembly tolerance analyses, and conducting producibility studies of fabrication articles.
