Tolerances are assigned to a mechanical engineering design either on the basis of functional and/or manufacturing requirements (toleranced dimensions, geometrical tolerances) or on the basis of the general categories-fine, medium, coarse-of the international standards or the designer's knowledge and experience (untoleranced dimensions). Conventional dimensions of the currently applicable dimensioning rules and implicit dimensions, including those attributed to geometrical tolerances, thus create four groups of tolerances which may or may not be compatible. In addition, any tolerance compromise, however tedious and difficult, not achieved systematically may well lead to accuracies which cannot be produced by the available machine tools. In the paper, a systematic approach to the above problems is presented. A methodology is demonstrated for the verification of the tolerance compatibility and for the assignment of compatible, producible and cost optimum tolerances. © 1993 Springer-Verlag. (EN)
