2001 Conference Presentations
|CAD-Based Tolerancing - An Overview
Ken Chase, Brigham Young University
Tolerance analysis of assemblies promotes concurrent
engineering by bringing engineering requirements and manufacturing
capabilities together in a common model.
By further integrating the engineering modeling and analysis with a
CAD system, a practical tool for product and process development is
created. It provides a
quantitative design tool for predicting the effects of manufacturing
variation on performance and cost in a CAD-based design environment.
This presentation will be an overview of the contributions made by
about 35 graduate students and many undergrads to the CATS technology for
CAD-based variation analysis.
