Philosophy

Generally, there are trade-offs between part feature requirements and assembly tolerancing requirements. If these trade-offs are made incorrectly, product cycle time and cost will increase.

Our philosophy is that mechanical product design cost can be optimized.


  • By establishing design rules and understanding design and manufacturing constraints, we define a single set of feature variation (and GD&T) controls that optimize the features’ manufacturability while meeting design performance requirements.


  • Using a rule-based process (which we call the MechPro™), we can predict both design and manufacturing quality before building hardware.


  • By automating MechPro™ with our MechTol™ software, we can further reduce design cycle time and cost.
