Today, the key to commercial success in manufacturing is the timely development of new products that are not only functionally fit for purpose but offer high performance
and quality throughout their entire lifecycle. In principle, this demands the introduction of a fully developed and optimised product from the outset. To
accomplish this, manufacturing companies must leverage existing knowledge in their current technical, manufacturing and service capabilities. This is especially true in the field of tolerance selection and application, the subject area of this research. Tolerance knowledge must be readily available and deployed as an integral part of the product development process. This paper describes a methodology and framework,currently under development in a UK manufacturer, to achieve this objective.
