Written by one of the foremost authorities in the field, Mechanical Tolerance Stackup and Analysis presents proven and easy-to-use methods for determining whether selected dimensioning and tolerancing schemes will yield functional parts and assemblies and the most practical procedure to communicate the results. Using a variety of examples and real-world design challenges that stress the importance of a standardized approach to tolerance stackups, the book helps readers develop effective problem-solving and analytical skills.

Demonstrates how to perform "what-if" scenarios to evaluate the effects of changing tolerancing schemes, tolerance values, and assembly sequences.

Mechanical Tolerance Stackup and Analysis is an outstanding and must-have reference for all mechanical, manufacturing, design, quality control, project, process, industrial, automation, and assembly engineers and managers; and upper-level undergraduate, graduate, and continuing-education students in these disciplines.
