Metrology and Dimensional Analysis: Close the Loop

Dimensional Variation Analysis Provides Value Across the Entire Product Life Cycle

Manufacturers are continuing to apply dimensional analysis more and more across the product life cycle. 


These days, manufacturers are looking at dimensional variation analysis as a primary tool in gaining competitive advantages for managing manufacturing costs and quality. With profit margins getting smaller, and competition getting bigger, companies use dimensional analysis to support lean manufacturing processes in order to reduce waste, scrap and warranty issues caused by non-conformances, variation and unexpected assembly defects. This is letting companies effectively increase profits by simply improving current processes and reducing costs that have historically been considered sunk.
