PTC Creo Tolerance Analysis Extension (TAE), is an extension to PTC Creo Parametric. With PTC Creo Tolerance Analysis Extensionyou can evaluate the impact of tolerances and dimensioning on product designs before the product reaches either prototyping or manufacturing.
PTC Creo Tolerance Analysis Extensionprovides two analysis tools: worst-case analysis and statistical analysis. Worst-case analysis, often used for critical components, considers what happens when each of the components in the stack-up reaches the maximum acceptable measurement. In statistical analysis each component's variation is modeled as a statistical distribution. These distributions then are added together to predict the distribution of the assembly measurement.
Using these tools, designers can produce products that meet customer requirements within acceptable margins. The result: shorter product development cycles, lower product cost, and higher product quality.
