Precision Measurement for Process Control
Roger B. Bryan, Operations Technology, Inc. (OPTEK)
“CAD programmable, real time precision
measuring systems are an integral factor in
establishing and improving production quality.
From front-end engineering to first article, no
single factor in manufacturing is better suited for
total over-all process control than an integrated
procedure of precision measuring.
“Quantification vs. qualification” measurement is
not “inspection.” By definition, “inspection”
devices do not measure, they sort. Properly
positioned, the application of precision measuring
systems and procedures is designed to enhance
both quality and yields.
