Abstract

Synthesizing dimensional tolerances of mechanical systems involves finding the values of the allowable variation of the functional dimensions. According to Axiomatic Design, the synthesis of mechanical tolerances can be described as a redundant decoupled design. This is why experienced engineers are proficient in solving this kind of problems, even if they never heard about Axiomatic Design and about the independence axiom. This paper presents an Axiomatic Design interpretation for the synthesis of dimensional tolerances. This interpretation shows that the traditional method for solving this class of problems implicitly obeys the independence and the minimum information axioms. (C) 2016 The Authors.
