This paper presents an approach to the mathematical modelling of the performances of a robot in assembly operations. The performance measure used is the probability of successful insertion, or the proportion of total assemblies attempted in which the robot will be successful. This performance is shown to be largely dependent on three factors: the geometry of the mating parts, manufacturing tolerances of the components to be assembled, and the repeatability of the robot assembly system. Two cases are presented for illustration.
