Dimensional Management - Setting Static and Dynamic Dimensional Goals Concurrently 2002-01-2004

The main element of dimensional management is specification cascading where customer requirements are translated into dimensional targets. It also includes GD&T, datum strategy, and tolerance optimization. These elements can only be effective if all of the work is done concurrently among various disciplines of an organization that have a stake in the fit, finish, and performance of the final product. When setting static dimensional goals during product development, vehicle performance targets and dynamic goals have to be defined simultaneously. One example is of the final door appearance for gaps and flushness on an automotive body from static standpoint. The wind-noise and door flutter are examples of dynamic performance goals. It becomes very costly to fix static fit and finish issues caused by the dynamic state of the vehicle late into the product development cycle or at the customer locations.
