An Adaptive Tolerance Model For Collaborative Design
To ensure the robustness of geometric tolerance in collaborative design, a multi-view tolerance data representation is needed as well as a multi-level representation. The goal of multi-level representation is to detail tolerances as knowledge of the product evolves during its development.
After a brief discussion, IPPOP product model and GeoSpelling tolerance model are chosen as basis of definition and implementation of an adaptive tolerance model. In this model, the multi-level and multi-view capabilities are permitted by level and view adaptations. Level and view adaptations consist of an evolution of the viewable tolerance data according to the step of design and to the actors.
These adaptations are presented and applied on a part of an automated cutting machine for fabrics.
