Article Abstract

This exposition deals with techniques of statistical tolernace analysis. The intent of the methodology is to allow the engineer to evaluate the effect of manufacturing tolerances and uncertainties in functional parameters on the performance or dimensions of a manufactured product. It provides information on the probability distribution of the output or dimension so that the analyst can make decisions on the quality of the product prior to actual manufacture. The technique provides a general tool which can be used in the analysis of systems of a general nature.
