In this paper, a state space modeling approach is developed for the dimensional control of sheet metal assembly processes. In this study, a 3-2-1 scheme is assumed for the sheet metal assembly. Several key concepts, such as tooling locating error, part accumulative error, and re-orientation error, are defined. The inherent relationships among these error components are developed. Those relationships finally lead to a state space model which describes the variation propagation throughout the assembly process. An observation equation is also developed to represent the relationship between the observation vector (the in-line OCMM measurement information) and the state vector (the part accumulative error). Potential usage of the developed model is discussed in the paper.
