Paper Abstract

The process of assigning tolerances to optical designs is intrinsically statistical, regardless of volume. Papers covering the statistics of tolerancing, however, have been infrequent. This paper will discuss the statistical nature of tolerancing including ramifications that all optical designers and engineers should understand.
