ONE of the biggest problems facing 21st-century engineering companies is managing variability.

The management of tolerance allocation and the management of process capability are crucial in our industry.

Process variability means poor quality components are created that have to be reworked, or - worse - scrapped.

This means products take longer to get off the production line and onto the market. It means delays - and delays cost money.

This is where CapraTechnology's Tolerance Capability Expert software (Tolcap) comes in.

Tolcap allows engineers to deliver consistent, repeatable and applicable tolerance analysis throughout the entire component design and manufacturing process.

This results in greater precision, greater accuracy and - most importantly - fewer rejects and less rework, which means improved performance, greater reliability and reduced costs.
