Run Tolerance Analysis Stacks Two, Three, Four Times Faster!

Two New Features Coming to 3DCS that Vastly Increase Analysis Speed

DCS is adding two new features to 3DCS that will greatly decrease your analysis time, getting you the answers you need faster than ever before. 

  • Shared Memory - Single Machine Multi-Core Processing - Enhanced speed on standard 3DCS software
  • Distributed Parallelization - Cloud Computing - Pay per use high performance processing 

Monte Carlo Analysis, especially in complex models and models using FEA (Finite Element Analysis) data can take a long time to finish running and provide outputs. These two new features help you reduce these run times significantly.

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.
