Plan Evaluation


Plan evaluation consists of two main steps---verification and rating. Plan verification involves determining whether or not a plan is capable of meeting the design specification. The main research issue in plan verification is determining the achievable manufacturing accuracy and comparing it with the design tolerances and surface finishes. Plan rating involves assigning a merit to the plan. If alternative plans exist, ratings are used to select the best plan.
