Tolerancing is an important issue in the quality evaluation of mechanical systems. Tolerancing of an industrial gear assembly set includes dimensioning and accuracy, fits and tolerances, clearances and interferences, accuracy of surface form, accuracy of orientation and location of component features. In this study, dimensional tolerancing of an elementary assembly unit that is part of an industrial gear assembly set was considered. A tolerances attribution was carried out aided by Monte Carlo Model and based on occurrence probability of assembled units acceptance by functional condition criteria. A JAVA program was created for this purpose.
