Vector Loop Analysis and Stream of Variation Analysis - SOVA

What are Some Methods of Variation Analysis?

There are a number of different methods developed to both describe variation on models and drawings, as well as analyze and control the impact of that variation. 

In a typical assembly process, dimensional variation is affected by tolerances (including component and operationinduced tolerances) and operations. Tolerance Analysis is focused on tolerances and assumes operations are known. Dimensional Variation Analysis analyzes both tolerances and operations. For example, operation sequence or operation type is an analysis topic for Dimensional Variation Analysis.
