OftenMoreA complete treatise on the subject of dimensional management, this book is designed to provide the reader with a comprehensive systems approach to all facets of dimension and tolerance development, analysis, inspection and documentation. Often referred to as “Dimensional Management,” this systems approach focuses on optimizing the interchangeability of multi-component manufactured products. And it demonstrates that through the detailed description of known manual and computer-aided tolerance analysis techniques, an understanding of manufacturing variation and the mitigation of its undesirable effects can be achieved. College-level engineering and technology students and working professionals involved in the design and manufacture of precision parts and assemblies will come to rely on Dimensional Management as an invaluable resource.Provides a complete treatment of all aspects of dimensioning and tolerancing as it relates to the design and manufacturing.Contains more than 125 detailed illustrations and tables.Features an entire chapter devoted to state-of-the-art computer-aided tolerance techniques.Includes a CD-ROM that demonstrates a family of Sigmund software products through a detailed user-friendly Power Point presentation. These proprietary computer-aided tolerancing products were developed and are sold by Varatech Engineering Consultants, and are quite possibly the most refined and powerful software of their type available on the market today.Includes a comprehensive chapter on GD&T as specified in the national dimensioning and tolerancing standard, ASME Y14.5M 1994.
