Sigmetrix Advances its Revolutionary CETOL 6σ Software with Version 8.3

New Enhancements Provide Additional Functionality and Ease of Use

MCKINNEY, Texas – June 11, 2013 – Sigmetrix, a PTC® PartnerAdvantage™ Gold Partner and a recognized leader in GD&T and tolerance analysis software, today announced the launch of its CETOL 6σ v8.3 software. This latest version dramatically improves the ease of use of the world’s most powerful tolerance analysis software.

With this new version, CETOL 6σ can initiate directly from the annotations that already exist in the CAD model generated by PTC® Creo® design software, significantly reducing the time required to model the dimension scheme.  This new feature also allows for 2-way associativity between the PTC Creo CAD annotation and the CETOL model.  Changes made to the CAD annotations are propagated to CETOL and changes made within CETOL in the process of a tolerance analysis are written back to PTC Creo, helping to ensure that tolerance information in the CAD model reflects the correct information.

“CETOL 6σ is the dominant solution for variation analysis in the automotive, medical, defense, electronic packaging, heavy equipment and many other industries,” stated Sigmetrix President Chris Wilkes. “This latest release is having an extraordinary global response as CETOL 6σ continues to improve quality across all major vertical markets with industry leaders like Chrysler, Alcon, FN Manufacturing, Caterpillar, and Doosan.”

“Sigmetrix continues to set the pace in the tolerance analysis software solutions market,” remarked Andy Barlow, Vice President, PTC PartnerAdvantage Program.  “The release of this latest version of the CETOL 6σ software is proof of their active commitment to the PartnerAdvantage program as they progressively develop leading-edge solutions that improve the quality and robustness of mechanical designs generated by users of PTC Creo solutions.” For more information on CETOL 6 visit
