Errors made during the early stages of design tend to contribute as much as 70% to the cost of production. It is better to consider manufacturing issues as early as possible in the product design process. However, making sound decisions in the early design phase is rather difficult since it involves many unpredictable factors in manufacturability, quality, etc For car and aircraft industries, the management of tolerances has become an important issue in product and process design. • • Designers need to manage the tolerances and to know information that contributed to their determination. Tolerancing process and Design for Manufacturing...
