Complexity of products is rapidly increasing. To ensure improved time to market, interchangeability of parts across variants is a critical factor. Tolerance Stackup Analysis helps ensure that assembly problems related to dimensional issues can be avoided. This methodology has rapidly become a regular and integral part of the product design phase. It can be used, both as a predictive and a problem-solving tool during design for assembly. Hence, it is a vital activity used to address mechanical fit and mechanical performance requirements in the basic mechanical design process.
Design engineers can perform Tolerance Stackup Analysis to save money and time without the need of a prototype assembly. Though it is no longer a luxury for small and medium-size companies and has become a necessity, companies struggle to implement it smoothly in their design process. Many organizations rely on old fashioned excel based calculations to perform the analysis. Though some organizations do have specialists to perform analysis with advanced tools, it is important that design engineers have some way in which they can look at the stackup analysis problem in a simplified way but which goes beyond excel. Designers are used to working in a visual manner with CAD so they need a tool which provides the same kind of visual interaction combined with the simplicity of a one-dimensional excel based calculation.
Join the webinar to learn or refresh some basic as well as critical aspects of Tolerance Stackup Analysis.
Attend the webinar to understand the:
• Importance of early Tolerance Stackup Analysis
• A simplified approach to Tolerance Stackup Analysis
• Case studies and Best Practices
