What isn't readily apparent, is how this applies to so many other things in our lives. Perfect plans rarely come out perfectly, but as long as they are within given tolerances, everything is fine. It is when they are outside tolerances that plans get scrapped, or require significant rework. Regardless of the outcome, it is always expensive in time and money.
This is where Tolerance Analysis comes in. It gives you an understanding ahead of time of which parts are going to be troublesome and how. Now if only we had something like this for the rest of our lives, which brings us to today's article.
DCS hosted three webinar series in 2016:

CAD models are now ubiquitous with manufacturing. However, once the model is done, and converted to 2D prints, it is often forgotten. Why? It is hard to correlate plant data with the CAD model and continue to use it. This is why, when design is done, the model is often shelfed until needed for a future design product. With 3DCS Inspection Planner, creating inspection plans to correlate the data makes it easy to bring inspection and measurement data back into your CAD model to solve design problems and build issues.
