This course builds on the module Robust design with tolerance analysis 1. We continue to work with tolerance ranges, but at an earlier stage in the development process. The goal of this course is to enable you to analyze a mechanical design in a systematic way to achieve a measure of the complexity of the design. The course is based on a series of practical exercises, in which a mechanical design is analyzed and optimized to achieve simpler tolerance chains and a more robust design against variation.
You will also be able to use Tolerance Chain calculations when approving tools in a continuous production.
This course is intended primarily for employees and specialists working in R&D, product development and design – with a primary focus on mechanical products.
What will you learn?
After participation in this course, you have learned to
- calculate degrees of freedom for a mechanical design
- set tolerance ranges for a mechanical problem
- optimize a mechanical design
Content in bullets
- Degrees of freedom
- Outlining tolerance chains
- Establishing of tolerance chains
- Evaluation of design robustness
- Reduction of ambiguities in a mechanical design
Do you want a stronger methodological understanding you may want to take one or more of the courses, Design for Six Sigma, DfSS, Quality Function Deployment, QFD and Risk Management in Development Projects.
