Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerance Analysis

  • Sammy G. Shina


This chapter is divided into two parts: the first discusses the subject of geometric dimensioning and tolerancing and its relevance in design for manufacturability. The second part deals with the why’s, how’s, and the need for tolerance analysis in taking a product from design to manufacture.
