Tolerance analysis undoubtedly is an important step in the design process. The main purpose of performing tolerance analysis is to predict the effect that the tolerances on individual parts will have on an assembly of these parts. In the analysis, original design data is initially used. Later on, various modifications driven by customers, vendors and internal design considerations can be fed back to the analysis to analyze their impacts. Inspection data, in addition, can be very useful in the analysis in order to: manage non-conforming parts, cut down manufacturing costs for non-critical tolerances, and close the gap between design and actual production to reduce time to market.
When tolerance stacks are created by various applications under different projects and repeatedly analyzed with different types of data, it can be very difficult to manage and update all these stacks and their related information. In addition, managing and updating is typically done manually and that tends to be time consuming and error prone.
TADM-System is a comprehensive solution for tolerance analysis and dimension engineering. It has helped customers greatly improve efficiency in the design process, cut down manufacturing cost, and reduce design cycle time.

Market Survey & comparative study
TADM system engineering team surveyed a sample engineering community. Based on this survey its clear that the Excel-based tolerance analysis is still a very popular way to perform such task. CAD-based tolerance analysis tools exist, but their use is limited. The TADM-System provides numerous advantages over an Excel-based tool and is also comparable to CAD-based tool on several fronts. The TADM-System includes features like “What-If Analysis” and “Calculated Parts” which are unique.
Shown below is a comparative study of The TADM system with the other commonly used Tolerance Analysis tools.
