About this book


This book focuses in particular on Geometrical Product Specification and Verification which is an integrated tolerancing view and metrology proposed for ISO/TC213. Common geometrical bases for a language allowing to describe both functional specification and inspection procedures are provided. An extended view of the uncertainty concept is also given.

Geometric Product Specification and Verification: Functionality Integration is an excellent resource to anyone interested in computer aided tolerancing, as well as CAD/CAM/CAQ. It can also be used as a good starting point for advanced research activity and is a good reference for industrial issues. A global view of geometrical product specification, models for tolerance representation, tolerance analysis, tolerance synthesis, tolerance in manufacturing, tolerance management, tolerance inspection, tolerancing standards, industrial applications and CAT systems are also included.
