The major part of production cost of a manufacturing product is set during the design stage and especially by the tolerancing choice. Therefore, a lot of work involves trying to simulate the impact of these choices and provide an automatic optimization. For integrating this modeling in computer aided design (cad) software, the tolerancing must be modeled by a mathematical tool. Numerous models have been developed but few of them are really efficient. Two advanced models are “T-map” model developed by Joseph K. Davidson and “deviation domain” developed by Max Giordano. Despite the graphical representation of these two models seems to be similar, they have significant differences in their construction and their resolution method. These similarities and differences highlight the needs of tolerancing modeling tool in each kind of problems, especially in case of assembly with parallel links.
