Manufacturing-based variations though, normally are not considered as a part of the design in the CAD systems, but are a critical part of the overall Product Development Life Cycle (PDLC) process. Companies now realize that a robust design has to address both functional design features and the related manufacturing process capabilities in order to produce a robust product. But the constraint is that all current CAE and CAD geometry systems base all analysis on assuming idealize manufactured and assembled conditions.
As a result, variations in products are introduced as functions of manufacturing processes used to produce parts that devlate from nominal on the surfaces of parts. Manufacturing variation then propagates as a function of the contacting surfaces in the assembly. This results in significant cost and quality effects due to product failures or design inefficiency.
