The devil is in the details; tolerances are the key to success

Looking at past projects it is clear that failures always arise from or are initiated by small details. The analysis of the tolerances handles just that, the details. But the misconception, which is a result of the misinterpretation of the famous V model of system engineering, is that there is a specific time to tackle these details. That is not the most efficient and effective way. In this lecture I will describe give examples and pointers on how to handle and target these details. Including a few examples on the broad spectrum of elements to think about when defining the tolerances.
