    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Ghaderi, Aref (Author) ; Khodaygan, Saeed (Supervisor) ; Assempour, Ahmad (Supervisor)
    Mechanical production centers are seeking to produce the highest quality products at the lowest cost. Intrinsic processes of manufacturing are not precise processes, and factors such as tool wear, tool vibration and fixation, fixing defects, and other factors that occur during production, make the pieces deviate from the designer's desirable geometry. Usually, due to deviations of parts from their size, their dimensional and geometric characteristics change. Because the components are rarely just a part, often in the majority of parts of the assembly, the operation of the set may be impaired due to the accumulation of changes. Errors that are usually caused during component assembly due to...
