A stochastic model of the four-bar linkage considering tolerances and clearances is made. The mechanical error is analyzed for the three-sigma band of confidence level. The effectiveness of the dynamic programming procedure to optimally allocate tolerances and clearance to different members of the linkage for a specified maximum allowable mechanical error is shown.
