This article proposes a novel method for tolerance specification on revolving components. The revolving parts are widely used and functionally important. An exclusion approach is introduced to construct a tolerance specification method. A functional analysis tool is developed to select features to be specified and to generate their datum reference frame. A set of rules are modelled to create suitable specification schemes. The independent axiom and entropy theory are applied for further specification refinement. A software application is developed, and an RV (RV is a code of model) reducer is used as a case study. A comparison with other specification methods is undertaken.
