Design Considerations – Why is Tolerance Important?

Tolerance is always an issue that arises when designing something. Tolerances are often an afterthought but it is actually incredibly important that tolerances are considered at an early stage of the design process.

During mass manufacture, the dimensions of every product will not be exactly the same. Many aspects of manufacture may affect the size which is why tolerances are so important. Tolerances dictate by how far the size can vary. Tolerances will depend on any other external components that come into contact with the component.

China Factory Visit – Buyer Diary #1: Culture & Customs

No Chinese businessman will be willing to talk business without getting to know you. Call it breaking the ice or earning your trust, business is always secondary to building personal relationships. Take note of this during your China factory visits. Due to the political environment in China, it is definitely much easier to do business with a wide network of connections.
