A methodology to predict part quality was applied to the perpendicularity quality of the bell face and main axis of a transmission case. By modeling the quality of different processing sequences, we were able to show that the quality of the part - perpendicularity of critical features - does not improve significantly by performing two-pass machining process instead of a single-pass. This application of our quality methodology required the modeling of additional system errors which were not developed in the earlier version and which were needed to predict certain types of form errors. In addition to improved part quality, changing the existing line to a single-pass process eliminated a bothersome job-setting procedure and tooling costs at the second-pass and increased productivity of a rebalanced line.
