Weighted Inertial Tolerancing

Summary: [This abstract is based on the authors' abstract.]The principle of inertial tolerancing consists of tolerancing the mean square deviation in relationship to the target. The method has many properties in common with the property of additivity of the mean square deviation, but when several characteristics are added, it leads to significant tightening of the variations around the target. The proposed alternative to inertial tolerancing, weighted inertial tolerancing, obtains a compromise between statistical tolerancing and worst-case tolerancing methods. The intended use is not to guarantee inertia on the resulting characteristic on the resulting characteristic, but to limit the variations compared with the target.
