Engineering design teams are increasingly required to consider sustainability in the design of products and related manufacturing and assembly processes. In this regard, the economic and ecological sustainability of products as well as their quality and cost is influenced by geometric part deviations, which are inevitably observed on every manufactured artefact. Thus, the management of geometric deviations along the product lifecycle is a key issue for companies to living up to modern innovation requirements. The aim of this paper is to provide an overview of tools for the tolerance analysis in different stages of geometric variations management and to propose a versatile approach for the sensitivity analysis applicable in these different stages. This approach is to support decision making in the geometric variations management during integrated product and process design.

Keywords: Robust Design, Tolerance Representation And Management, Decision Making
