The objective of the present research is to develop a systematic method for planning and analysis of kinematic motion deviations of machine tools based on geometric tolerances of three-dimensional components. This paper deals with the modeling and analysis of the geometric deviations of the toleranced components. The tolerance zones of the geometric features of the components are investigated and classified based on the definitions of the geometric tolerances. The parameters are defined to describe the deviations of the geometric features within the tolerance zones. An analytical method is proposed to estimate the statistic deviations of the positions and the orientations of the geometric features, based on the deviation parameters and the relationships between the datum features and the toleranced features.
