Applying, Communicating, and Evaluating Product Tolerances

If you deal with geometric dimensioning and tolerancing (GD&T), KOTEM EVOLVE software helps you improve your product tolerances from design to volume manufacturing processes.

Today’s manufacturing world is increasingly complex and demanding, with large supply chains and worldwide manufacturing locations. Effectively communicating the intent of the product design across the enterprise improves efficiency, and reduces the risk of wasted time and money. It also protects the value of intellectual property.

The KOTEM EVOLVE suite of software products helps people address the challenges of product tolerancing throughout their organizations – from design through final inspection.

Whether a designer is struggling with the proper application of GD&T on a part, or a quality person is trying to validate that a part is within tolerances, or a manufacturing engineer is trying to understand why a machine operation is reaching an out-of-tolerance condition, the KOTEM EVOLVE Suite provides them with answers.

Kotem Evolve Design


Verify GD&T specifications in your CAD files. EVOLVE Design checks compliance and helps with ASME and ISO standards. View the GD&T and simulate measurement data in the model.

EVOLVE Manufacturing

GD&T expresses function-based zones and datums but manufacturing needs dimensions and angles for process changes. EVOLVE Manufacturing transforms inspection data into process-specific dimensional parameters to accelerate root-cause analysis and corrective action.

EVOLVE SmartProfile

EVOLVE SmartProfile makes pass/fail checks easy. It analyzes complex ASME and ISO GD&T characteristics of manufactured parts, using CAD models and measurement points.


All the statistical analysis tools you need tied to the model-based display make it easier to visualize process or inspection measurement challenges.
