I am working with a team of my peers to create a company wide assembly modeling standard. I am finding it vary hard to find hard info on mating robustness and calculation times.

Is there anyone out there that might be able to guide me on getting this type of information.


An example of a case i am trying to plea is.

When mating parts with fastener holes. It is better to mate only one hole and then mate planes parallel or at an angel over mating two fastener holes concentric.


I cant find any hard facts to plea that one way is better than the other.
