Precision Learning
Precision Learning In The Classroom
PTC University uses the Precision Learning methodology to develop effective, comprehensive class
material that will improve the productivity of both individuals and organizations. PTC then teaches
using the proven instructional design principal of Tell Me, Show Me, Let Me Do:

nl

Topics are introduced through a short presentation, highlighting the key concepts.
These key concepts are then reinforced by seeing them applied in the software application.
You then apply the concepts through structured exercises.

After the course, a Pro/FICIENCY assessment is provided in order for you to assess your
understanding of the materials. The assessment results will also identify the class topics that
require further review.

Precision Learning After the Class

se

At the end of the class, you will either take a Pro/FICIENCY assessment via your PTC University
eLearning account, or your instructor will provide training on how to do this after the class.

Each student that enrolls in a PTC class has a PTC University eLearning account. This account will
be automatically created if you do not already have one.

al

As part of the class, you receive additional content in your account:

te

rn

A Pro/FICIENCY assessment from the course content that generates a Recommended Learning
Report based on your results.
A Web-based training version of the course, based on the same instructional approach of lecture,
demonstration and exercise. The Recommended Learning Report will link directly to sections
of this training that you may want to review.

You need to configure an operation that involves specifying a machine tool by selecting a
pre-configured fadal workcell. You also assemble a fixture that represents the fadal machine tool.
You configure the machine zero coordinate system for the operation. This involves creating a
new coordinate system in the manufacturing model. This coordinate system references model
geometry from the fixture assembly. Finally, you specify the retract plane relative to the machine
coordinate system.
