Most of researches of tolerance optimization have used a simple sum of tolerance-cost functions with several constraint equations as an optimization model. However, if there is a machining sequence with more than one processes to complete a part, and machining failure, i.e., out-of-tolerance occurs at one of the intermediate processes, the tolerance-cost of this process should be added by the machining cost of all the previous processes already completed on the part. In this study, an accumulated scrap cost model(ASCM) is proposed considering the scrapped machining cost, and applied to a simple assembly example. The result of tolerance optimization using ASCM is compared with that of using a traditional optimization model to confirm its effectiveness.
