In circuit design the optimal assignment of component nominal values and tolerances is usually carried out supposing that the acceptability region is monodimensionally convex. A method is proposed, based on minimisation techniques, for verifying the validity of a solution obtained under this hypothesis. The same method can also be used for tolerance reassignment when the verification result is negative.
