We report here on the extension of earlier work to incorporate additional tolerances and requirements that have an impact on the cost of optical components. We include information reported by other authors which correlates well with our own findings. An example case is shown where the data base developed was used in a simple computer program to quickly calculate the cost impact of extensive tolerance changes on a large number of components. The possibility of an automated Lens Estimating System is discussed.
