NOTE: Volvo use their own summary statistics (Centre Spread and Target) Centre looks at features where mean is outside or close to tolerance, Spread looks at Range compared to tolerance and Target looks at individual measurements. In all cases these statistics are calculated to a variety of percentage of the tolerance value. So a Spread 50% value will be a comparison of the range of measured values to 50% of the tolerance value.
