Ensure product quality by understanding the impact of dimensional variation before design release.
Manufacturers spend millions of dollars every year chasing and fixing product quality issues. A large percentage of these issues are due to dimensional variation, which leads to build problems, late-stage engineering changes, scrap and rework or worse: product failure in the field.
As a result, manufacturers have turned to tolerance analysis or some form of tolerance stack-up. The problem is that analyzing the part tolerance stack-up in the assembly does not allow for tooling and manufacturing process variation, which are significant contributors to dimensional variation.
The Tecnomatix dimensional quality solutions enables you to analyze the impact of manufacturing processes on design features and tolerances highlighting the sources and amounts of dimensional variation. It helps you improve design quality and eliminate costly prototypes while reducing labor, tooling and metrology costs on the shop floor.
The Variation Analysis solution (formerly VSA) is a powerful dimensional analysis tool used to simulate manufacturing and assembly processes, in order to predict the amounts and causes of dimensional variation.
