I guess you could say not enough "mass" or material at the edge. I want the rib to even out with the edge of the cylinder. How do i do so? Thx
Unfortunately, this can't be done. For this to be possible, the upper surface of the rib would have to be non-planar. There's a mistake on your drawing. There is no contact edge (red arrow) between the upper surfaces of the rib and the sleeve. This edge is always visible. Except when the upper surfaces are one plane (they have the same height and do not intersect at an angle)
What you want to achieve is only possible by modeling the upper surface "by hand" but then it is not planar. See below black faces are planar. As you can see the upper rib has a curvature on the upper surface.
Hera you have solution for minimize not necessary effect.
And (if necessary) fillets
ahh I see. Thanks for the awesome visualization!! What I want can not be achieved because such thing is physically impossible in real life. No wonder I had a hard time trying to imagine something that doesn't even exist.
Shawn, look allow - I have updated my answer.
You have a lot of unnecessary workplanes.
I use only the Origin planes as much as possible and practical.
Here's how I usually handle that. I put a little tail on the rib sketch to make it extend from the face of the round boss.
That is maybe a little exaggerated here to make it obvious. It is maybe still not what you want, but it is at least geometrically correct, and manufacturable.

One of my most vivid memories comes from about 35 yrs ago when I was working as a machinist out on the shop floor and I cut a top of boss on a casting like this to size and it cut into the rib - changing from the view on the print (hand drawn on the drawing board at that time).
At first I thought I had just scrapped a large expensive (military) casting.
Then after studying the drawing a bit - I realized that the geometry was fudged on the drawing and could not possible result after machining the same as on the drawing.
