RD&T (Robust Design & Tolerancing) is a tool for statistical variation simulation that allows the effect of manufacturing and assembly deviations to be simulated and visualized long before any physical prototypes are being made. Different design concepts can thereby be analyzed and compared and the quality of the decisions made can be improved.
RD&T is a software package that supports the geometry assurance process in all its phases, from early design/styling to pre-production and production. A strong focus is on making the product concept robust to manufacturing variation and to be able to predict final variation in the products critical dimensions. RD&T has been used in the automotive industry for over 15 years, supporting both OEMs, suppliers and consultants.
