True position tolerancing enables designers to convey a concise statement of design intent to both production and inspection. The position tolerance of a feature can be specified as a static quantity by using the Regardless of Feature Size (RFS) modifier or as a dynamic quantity by using the Maximum Material Condition (MMC) modifier. However, the constraints imposed on production errors are not evident from the tolerance frame. This paper develops several models relating position and size tolerance of a feature to inherent production errors.
