Using composite materials like endless fiber reinforced plastics offers numerous advantages. Nevertheless, the material properties of composite materials lead to new challenges in the manufacturing and assembly process. Additionally, variations and uncertainties occurring in the different production steps lead to increased production costs. Therefore, appropriate consideration of variations is needed and can be achieved through a continuous analysis of variations and their effects on the parts‘ quality using methods of tolerance management. The contribution proposes the development of such a simulation strategy.
