Design of a new artifact begins with incomplete knowledge about the final product and the design evolves as it progresses from the conceptual design stage to a more detailed design. In this paper, an effort has been made to give a structural framework, through a set of generic definitions, to product specification, functional representation, artifact(More)
Tolerances impose restrictions on the possible deviations of features from their nominal sizes/shapes. These variations of size/shape could be thought of as deviations of a set of generalized coordinates defined at some convenient point on a feature. Any tolerance specification for a feature imposes some kind of restrictions or constraints on its deviation(More)
In this paper, a generic model for the synthesis of tolerances for manufactured parts is presented. The model uses a method of transforming traditional tolerance specifications (as defined in ASME Y14.5M) to a generalized coordinate system (hereinafter referred to as deviation space). Small displacement torsors (SDTs) have been used for representing the(More)
