"Tolerancng" is a common engineering term that is most
commonly seen as part of the phrase "geometric
dimensioning and tolerancing." It refers to the determining
and/or verifying the tolerances in mating parts to ensure
that they fit together correctly, and to the symbolic language
used to mark drawings. If spotted in engineers' document
drafts or inputs, it should not make it to final user documents
unless it is in the actual title of a reference document, but if
used as jargon in the text of internal manufacturing documents
everyone who is meant to read it will know what it means.
