Whitepaper on Effective Tolerance Management

Any manufactured object differs in shape and dimension from its ideal design. This variation does not necessarily cause problems regarding functionality, but it always contributes to cost.

Find out why more and more companies implement GD&T as an essential element of their design process in this easy to understand whitepaper with examples.

What is covered?

  • The cost of imprecision
  • Introduction to GD&T
  • Dimensioning geometric and tolerancing: Complementary aspects
  • Functional Dimensioning
  • Tolerance stacking
  • 2D and 3D approaches
  • Worst Case Analysis
  • Statistical approach, including sensitivity and statistical contribution analysis
  • CETOL 6σ for tolerance analysis and optimisation

How to reduce cost and increase quality

The whitepaper on effective tolerance management is a comprehensive introduction to the cost of imprecision and how you can minimise it.
The whitepaper covers the application of GD&T, different tolerance analysis approaches, and CETOL 6σ.
