The CIRP (International Academy for Production Engineering) organizes every two years a seminar on the computer-aided tolerancing.
In 2009, this CAT seminar becomes the CIRP CAT international conference.
The control of the geometrical quality is essential in all the Product Life Cycle.
The necessity of optimizing design and manufacturing processes, saving the material and the energy, guaranteeing the safety, respecting functional constraints always more numerous imposes an increased rigour in the control process of the products geometrical quality.
The actual research in the field of tolerancing are focused on the modelling for the calculation of 3D specifications, or on the processes of production and inspection.
We should not forget that these various aspects are connected and impose a global vision of the “chain of the geometrical quality” in the PLM.
The previous conferences have allowed to show the advances in these various domains and their applications for systems of Computer Aided Tolerancing.
This CAT conference will try to extend those preoccupations to the entire product life cycle.
