Bond graph model, statistical tolerancing, Monte Carlo simulation, gear motor


In this work, a new approach has been proposed that allows the analysis and synthesis of mechatronic system tolerances. This approach is based on a statistical method namely Monte Carlo Simulation (MCS). By making a large number of simulations with deviations randomly selected or not in the specified areas, it is possible to perform a statistical analysis of mechatronic system tolerances. To illustrate our approach, we treat the case of the slider crank system driven by a gear motor.
