This paper describes the use and deployment of, virtual fixtures, jigs and gauges to locate, align and measure features in simulation models used in the dimensional variation analysis (DVA) of assembly systems. The particular example chosen in this paper is a McPherson strut suspension. The correct use of virtual fixtures, jigs and gauges can significantly improve the accuracy and realism of the simulation model and thus the DVA output. In kinematic assembly systems, the use of virtual fixture, jigs and gauges is often essential to produce a working simulation model.
