The paper studies the comparison of the group interchangeability method with the full interchangeability method of the technological assembly process in the case of the ladder dimensional circuit complete interchangeability for the assembly components of machines. With the method of group interchangeability, a several times increase of component links dimensions tolerance is achieved as compared with the method of full interchangeability with the introduction of an additional sorting operation. The feasibility study consists of reducing the equipment requirements, the technological machining step and operations number, technological and special accessories, workers’ skills. A significant drawback of the group interchangeability method is the unfinished production occurrence, to reduce which it is necessary to apply different methods of regulation master link sizes. In this regard, it is necessary to conduct a feasibility study of applying the group interchangeability method for each specific case using the methods given in the article. It also provides recurrence equations to formalize the settlements of upper and lower deviations with the tension for ladder dimensional circuit by using the group interchangeability method.
