Song et al. where IT (Fi ) is feasible IT for the ith feature; Tol SIM is the stack up simulation results; Tol REQ is the design tolerance requirement.
5.1. Cost model The cost model in this study consists of machine level, part level, and feature level formulations. At the feature level, the cost depends on material machinability, feature type, size, and IT grade. With material, feature type and size as known factors retrieved from design information, the IT grade is the only variable at this level. C (Fi ) = α ⋅ β ⋅ f1 (Fi ) ⋅ V (Fi ) ⋅ exp(a ⋅ ITi ) i = 1,2,..., n where C (Fi ) is the manufacturing cost of the ith feature; α...
