In this paper we describe "the form-shaping system theory" using tool and contour grinding simulations. The form-shaping system enables the simulation of the form-shaping process, and takes into account machine tool error, facilitating quantitative investigation of the influence of this error on the machining accuracy. The computer simulations and the actual grinding tests reveal the practicality of the system for analysis of the machining accuracy.
