Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing (GD&T) is a common international engineering language used in today's highly competitive global market. It is the language that designers use to translate design requirements into unambiguous and measurable specifications. Although Singapore is a very small country but it has a huge manufacturing business opportunity, as a result, GD&T is a very important tool that cannot be neglected in local industry. The purpose of this project is to introduce the fundamental principles of GD&T application to Singapore Industry, and to formulate an easy-to-adopt format with lots of graphical diagrams, to build up basic skills for student and future engineers. There will be some quiz associated to the chapter at appendix to test the degree of understanding from the readers. In addition, few commercial engineering drawings from various industries will be presented to provide a more comprehensive understanding of GD&T application.
