To foster the use of corresponding databases and to stimulate further research, this paper gives an overview about the scope of potential applications for a PCDB in product development. Furthermore, the expected manufacturing accuracy of specific product characteristics/features is discussed. For the generalization of measurement data, a DOE (Design of Experiments)-based approach is proposed to identify influencing factors related to the production accuracy of each geometric feature, using the example of metal shear forming processes.

Keywords: robust design, tolerance management
