  Beam design and beam optics studies for the HIE-ISOLDE transfer lines have been carried out in MadX, and benchmarked against Trace3D results. Magnet field errors and alignment imperfections leading to deviations from design parameters have been treated explicitly, and the sensitivity of the machine's lattice to different individual error sources was studied. As a result, the tolerances for the various error-contributions have been specified for the different equipment systems. The design choices for the expected magnet field and power supply quality, alignment tolerances, instrument resolution and physical aperture were validated. The methodology and results of the studies are presented.
