• ### 1 Variation Analysis - What is a Dimensional Variation Analysis Model?

5,203 views 3 years ago
Part of the 3DCS Training Series: http://www.3dcs.com/getting......

A dimensional variation analysis model is a simulation of an assembly to predict the amount of variation resulting from piece-part tolerances and process sequence.

In addition, a variation analysis simulation helps to determine the key contributors to that variation. 3DCS is a dimensional analysis tool for performing variation analysis simulations. It works by replicating the build process with deviated parts in a virtual environment.

The deviations come from tolerances randomly varied within specified ranges and distributions. 3DCS simulates building thousands of assemblies to generate a statistical output for each measurement. The software analyzes every tolerance’s contribution to variation.

The simulation results provide critical insight to identify strengths and weaknesses of a design. This insight is essential for revisions that drive improvement in your results with greater consistency.
