Abstract

Tolerancing is commonly performed in late design stages, in which the
product geometry is fully defined. However, this often leads to high
manufacturing costs or expensive design changes. Therefore, motivated by
the idea of frontloading, a new approach for first tolerance
evaluations in conceptual design stages is developed, which enables a
first tolerance specification and analysis based on the few geometry
data available. Together with semantic information of the interface
notations of adjacent parts, graphs including relevant geometry elements
and tolerance information are generated. These graphs support designers
with a first assessment of tolerance situations before the geometry is
finally defined.
