In designing a linkage to transform one motion into another motion, consideration is given to the design sensitivity by analyzing the difference between the function generated by an ideal model of the mechanism and a model which incorporates manufacturing tolerances and clearances. The effects of these tolerances and clearances are presented in the form of mobility bands for the linkages.
