Tolerancing is the analysis of system sensitivity to the perturbations introduced through manufacture, assembly and test errors.

OpticStudio supports a comprehensive, flexible, and powerful integrated tolerance analysis capability. Tolerances are set using the Tolerance Wizard with a combination of user selectable options. Default tolerances include ranges on radius, fringes, thickness, position, x and y tilt, x and y decenter, irregularity, wedge, glass index, Abbe number, and more. OpticStudio analyzes the effects of these tolerances, and provides adjustments and assembly procedures to simulate the complete manufacture, test and assembly process.
