Unformatted text preview: esents a generic constraint between KCs which are defined at the same level. To demonstrate the efficiency of the proposed approach, a prototype with Ozone (Object Oriented Data Base) has been realized (Figure 8). And the GRT example has been used. Figure 8: examples of interface and workflow. 5 CONCLUSION To manage tolerances during the product and process design, we propose an approach which includes: • • an information representation by graph, an information model which stores data related to Product model, Process plan, Manufacturing resources and on the Key Characteristics approach. The extension of the KC approach allows to integrate the quantitative aspect of the tolerances management. This quantitative aspect is based the mathematical models of tolerance, and the mathematical tools for tolerance analysis and tolerance synthesis and it allows to evaluate the impacts of manufacturing tolerance on functional characteristics during product and process design.
