Paper Abstract

The large variety of the technologies and physical, chemical or biochemical effects united in micro systems requires a new generation of quality assurance. An appropriate quality management should check all conceivable influences on the product and perform a complete tolerance synthesis based on its function and with regard to manufacturing and cost optimization. In the following, a new approach to function-oriented tolerance analysis and synthesis is presented. The Institutes for Engineering Design and Micro Technology in Braunschweig, Germany, have developed a computer program, which assists Design Engineers in tolerance analysis and synthesis in micro technology. This contribution presents the theoretical background of this software. For a better understanding two short MEMS examples are shown.
