Gears as the key transmission parts of machineries are widely used in mechanical and aeronautical fields. GeoSpelling, a framework standardized as ISO 17450-2005 supported tolerancing process by a set of concepts and mathematical algorithms, is a coherent and complete model to manage the shape variations of geometrical parts. Considering current gear specification standards incline to inspection convenient ignoring tolerance quality control, so it is a realistic necessary to develop a coherent

This model should not only consider integrating functional requirements involved in design stage but also be able to correspond to manufacturing and inspection procedures. In this paper a new approach based on discrete geometry is introduced to design gear specification model. It is also focus on a perspective discussion on how SSA (Statistical Shape Analysis) method could be a solution to analyze the gear integrated errors into different individual errors, such as tangential composite error, tooth-to-tooth tangential composite error, pitch accumulated deviation, tooth-to-tooth pitch accumulated deviation and geometric eccentricity. The fundamentals mentioned above provide a reliable methodology for analyzing gear manufacturing errors. As a result it is able to enhance the computational processing capability and metrological traceability for gear quality control.
