The paper reviews the literature on the computer modelling of dimensions and tolerances. The success of manufacturing industries is becoming more dependent on the efficient management of large amounts of product data. Included in this data is information that defines the nominal shape of a product and its dimensions and tolerances. Although representation schemes for nominal geometry are now relatively mature, there is no universally recognized representation scheme for a product's dimensions and tolerances. The paper examines recent approaches to tolerance representation, and highlights the advantages and disadvantages of each.
