A few weeks ago we hosted a workshop on the fundamentals of tolerance analysis. In the workshop, we walked a group of engineers through the basic steps of a simple tolerance analysis, to help them gain experience around how to complete a tolerance analysis for higher quantity manufacturing processes.

In the workshop we reviewed:

  • Important keyword definitions
  • How to determine tolerance across difference fabrication processes
  • How to define a tolerance in an engineering drawing
  • A few practical examples of tolerance analysis and drawing creation including Worst Case Analysis (WC), Root Sum Square (RSS) – statistical, and Monte Carlo Simulation (MC) – statistical.
