Unformatted text preview: r CAD and CAT software. Current design practice does not make a clear distinction between creation of a competent nominal design (that is, one that is as close as practical to properly constrained or one in which the designer deliberately inserts desired over-constraint and takes it into account) and performance of a variation analysis (too often called tolerance analysis). Existing CAD systems do not support this distinction or yet provide sufficiently adequate tools for addressing each kind of design. Since the content of his address was taken from the references on page 2, only the abstract of it appears in this book. This book focuses in particular on the Models for Computer Aided Tolerancing in Design and Manufacturing since accurate and comprehensive models are the basis of the algorithms in software for CAT. Also included are other developments in the field and present applications. Models for Computer Aided Tolerancing in Design and Manufacturing provides an excellent resource to anyone interested in compu...
