Abstract


Imprecise manufacturing processes lead to products which differ in their dimensions and shape. As a consequence, the product developer has to specify appropriate tolerances to limit these deviations and thus to ensure the adequate functional and aesthetic quality of the final products. These tolerances, however, affect several departments of a company, such as manufacturing, technical procurement, metrology or quality control. Hence, insights gained during tolerance analysis and tolerance synthesis must be documented and visualized in a clear and comprehensive manner toward all departments involved.

This paper presents an academic recommendation on a comprehensive visualization and documentation of the results of statistical tolerance simulations, focusing on systems in motion which underlie different kinds of deviations. These so-called mechanisms demand a more detailed result visualization than common static (non-moving) systems. The implemented academic tool called “Tol/Mech–insight” provides a comprehensive result visualization and documentation for tolerance simulations of mechanisms and may serve as a sufficient basis for decision-making among experts in various departments.
