Structural variations are inevitable in the manufacturing process and can only be minimized to a certain extent. In the development of lens tubes for cameras, strict specifications are imposed for the tolerance of the individual components to guarantee a predefined quality level. The aim while optimizing the design of lenses are to find a proper definition of the tolerances such that a certain optical quality reached.
Many evaluation parameters can be used to measure the optical performance of a camera system. The Root-Mean-Square (RMS) wavefront aberration is an averaged error measure that describes the gap between the ideal wave front and the actual wavefront. It can be determined from the position and tilt of all lenses in a lens tube.
