We discuss the use of variograms for covariance modeling under the Kriging model to assess tolerances on manufactured parts. The variogram is very informative about the spatial dependence and it is favored by researchers in the choice of a correlation function. It may give evidence of anisotropy and of nugget effect too. In this paper, various variogram estimators from literature are used for comparing and evaluating their properties in assessing the surface error of three workpieces manufactured with different machining precisions. Contrary to the common engineering belief, the variograms give evidence of both technological signatures and systematic errors of the measurement machines.
