Tolcap is an online software package that enables engineers to allocate process capable tolerances to ANY design characteristic. It manages tolerance allocation and predicts process capability at the early stages of design BEFORE production starts.
Using Tolcap, the impact of a design being out of tolerance can be assessed and a cost of quality can be assigned. This allows alternative designs and manufacturing process to be compared directly on a total cost basis.
Tolcap addresses one of the biggest problems facing 21st Century engineering - managing variability.
