Design to Cost through Tolerance Optimization
Tolerances are a significant cost factor in the development and production of mechanical assemblies. The workshop describes the classification of tolerances in the “Design To Cost” methodology complex and how the early use of tolerance methods and simulation tools can influence costs related to variation.
An introduction to cost-efficient product design (DTC) | Benjamin Schleich, FAU Erlangen
Dimensional Management as a basis for ISO GPS definition | Florian Weidenhiller, TTC³ GmbH
360° Dimensional Management | Steffen Klein, BSH Hausgeräte GmbH
Product and cost optimization through 3D tolerance simulation | Cyril Lebon, Julius Blum GmbH
Sampling-based tolerance-cost optimization for a cost-optimal tolerance design | Martin Hallmann, FAU Erlangen
Benjamin Schleich | FAU Erlangen
Benjamin Schleich is a Senior Engineering at the Institute of Engineering Design of the Friedrich-Alexander-University Erlangen-Nürnberg, Germany and leader of the research groups "dimensional management" and "digital engineering". His research mainly focuses on computer-aided tolerancing, geometrical variations management, and digitalization in virtual and digital product development.
Florian Weidenhiller| TTC³ GmbH
Dipl.-Ing. (Univ.) Florian Weidenhiller studied production engineering at the Institute for Machine Tools and Industrial Management (iwb) at the Technical University of Munich. Since 1997 he has been employed by Variation Systems Analysis GmbH / TTC3 GmbH, most recently as technical director. His field of activity includes the planning and implementation of extensive tolerance management studies in the automotive (with focus on body shell, chassis, RHT and interior), aerospace, defense, mechanical engineering, consumer goods and medical technology industries. Furthermore, he is responsible for the implementation of innovative software solutions such as the integration of tolerance and finite element simulation, integration of measurement data into 3D tolerance analysis, geometry export of tolerance-related extreme positions, visualization of simulation results in the VR environment (Virtual Reality) as well as coupling of tolerance and multi-body simulation.
Steffen Klein | BSH Hausgeräte GmbH
2005-2009 Study of mechanical engineering at „Hochschule Bonn-Rhein-Sieg”
2010 Start at BSH Home appliances as Design Engineer
2014 Key-User PLM System
2016 Tolerance Simulation
2019 Tolerance Management
Cyril Lebon | Julius Blum
Cyril Lebon got a PhD in material sciences at the University of La Rochelle.
He has more than 10 years of experience in the computation simulations. Six years ago, he began to work by Julius Blum GmbH, one of the world’s leading manufacturers of furniture fittings. Between 2013 and 2017, he introduced an integration platform for multi-objective and multi-disciplinary optimization, ModeFrontier, for the development of new products. Since 2017, he is responsible for the tolerance management by Julius Blum GmbH. Next to the introduction of a tolerance analysis software, CeTol 6sigma, he develops methods and strategies concerning tolerance management from the project beginning to the time to market.
Martin Hallmann | FAU Erlangen
Martin Hallmann is a Research Associate in the research group ‘‘dimensional management’’ at the Institute of Engineering Design of the Friedrich-Alexander-University Erlangen-Nürnberg, Germany. In his current research, he focuses on virtual product development and computer-aided tolerancing. His area of expertise is the usage of optimization techniques for least-cost tolerance design.
