Thanks for support of my "stirring the pot". But really it is not so much to "stir the pot" as my intent is to simply recognize that tolerance analysis contiues to be over looked. What I hope to accomplish is that some of the higher level management and executives that have the obvious objectives to reduce cogs, get to market faster with the best quality and want to reduce physical prototypes to reduce R&D cost and time; go right into production tooling, etc. begin to realize that colorful spreadsheets do nothing to "produce" product. They make colorful design reviews of information and can be very effective in collecting information. But if the information collected is not valid then its garbage in and garbage out. For example, if a CTQ (an ever popular term for Six Sigma) is directly cascaded (another popular term) to a specific measurement (transfer function) between to features of a part or two parts of an assembly and the toerance analysis is invalid or doesn't exist; "What value is the answer on the CTQ scorecard?" What value is there to the design review? The bottom line is margin/profit. Ultimately when product is produced at a cost and sold for what the market will bear, the truth comes out and the scramble is on in a corrective action mode instead of continous improvement.
