Unformatted text preview: . The subject of this book, Models for Computer Aided Tolerancing in Design and Manufacturing, focuses on mathematical and computer models and their application to the design and manufacture of machinery and other products. Current CAT systems work for simple problems in which the geometry is not very elaborate. However, for many practical applications, consistent results can be obtained only by those who are expert in both solid modeling and tolerance standards, and sometimes also expert in the computational methods and machinery for quality control measurements. The software for these three fields are not well integrated, and the standards for each were derived from different communities and different premises. Some time ago ISO experts around the world realized how important the integration of these three fields is. Each new standard in these fields improves the integration. The ultimate goal, and the motivation for much of the work described in this book, is to provide CAT systems which are comprehensive enough that ordinary designers can achieve acceptable and consistent results when assigning tolerances to dimensions and features...
