Title A new approach to tolerance analysis
Date 1994
Description Tolerance analysis is seen as part of a more general problem, namely handling data with uncertainty. Uncertain geometric data arises when interpreting measured data, but also in solid modeling where floating point approximations are common, when representing design tolerances, or when dealing with limited manufacturing precision. The common question is whether parts with uncertain shape fulfill certain functional specification. The question is expressed as geometrical relationship between toleranced objects. Unfortunately, tolerance based relations are often inconsistent, unlike relations between exactly represented objects. In this paper we survey current tolerance representation and analysis methods. We then derive our method of intuitionistic tolerance handling from a method developed for robust solid modeling. A new representational framework is proposed, which serves as the basis for robust geometric modeling and tolerance analysis. We illustrate the framework with examples of assembly design.
