heal.abstract This paper presents a new method and a prototype system for cost optimal tolerance design in mechanical assemblies. The system overcomes inefficiencies and/or handicaps met in current methods and tools that require expert cost-tolerance input referenced to the participating in the assembly chain dimensions or the availability of case-driven experimental cost-tolerance data. This is accomplished by introducing the concept of the Tolerance Element (TE), a machining process related geometric entity with attributes associated with the accuracy cost and identifiable in conformance with the standard industrial understanding. It becomes thus possible to assign cost optimum and rational component tolerances through an algorithmic mode that can be directly integrated in a CAD environment. Within this-based on the TE approach-frame, machining capability and cost per TE-class of a particular machine shop are appropriately recorded and processed and cost-tolerance functions automatically established and stored in the system database to be used for tolerance optimization. The latter once created, needs then updating only when changes take place in the machine shop resources and/or expertise. Tolerance allocation can be thus achieved with minimum manufacturing cost within the machine shop accuracy getting capability in an effort and time efficient way through realistic and machine shop focused cost-tolerance data. An application example demonstrates the method and its positive evaluation in comparison with alternative problem solutions. en
