Associating a Manufacturing Spec to a Design Spec
You can now define a relationship between a Manufacturing Dimension and a Standard Dimension (i.e. a Print Dimension).
Once this relationship is defined, the system will output the related Print Dimension in place of the Manufacturing Dimension on the PPAP Control Plan and PFMEA.
This is helpful when you are holding the feature to a tighter manufacturing tolerance (on a manufacturing or operation drawing with it’s own feature number) , but need to report back to the customer against the original tolerance (i.e. the original balloon number on the customer print).
In the example below, feature 17.1 is a Manufacturing Dimension held to a tighter tolerance than the Reference Standard (Print) Dimension #17.
