QUESTION: I am running a tolerance analysis with Merit Function as the criterion. However, the min and max values for the compensators go beyond what is called out in my Tolerance Data Editor after the tolerancing is run. Why is this?

ANSWER: If you are using Merit Function as the criterion, you must define boundaries to the compensators in the Merit Function Editor and not in the Tolerance Data Editor. Use optimization operands such as PMLT (Parameter less than) and PMGT (Parameter greater than) as well as other boundary operands to apply these boundary conditions.
