Abstract

The recent release of ISO 14405-1 has provided designers with a richer set of specification

tools for the size of part features, so that various functional requirements can be captured with

greater fidelity. However, these tools also bring new challenges and pitfalls to an inspector

using a coordinate metrology system. A sampling strategy that might have worked well in the

past could lead to erroneous results that go undetected when used to evaluate these new

specifications. In this paper we investigate how measurement strategies for sampled coordinate

metrology systems influence different algorithms for the evaluation of these new

specifications. Of particular interest are those specifications where the order statistics of

feature cross-sections are required. Here the inspector must decide not only how many points

are required for an individual cross-section, but the number and spacing of cross-sections

measured on the feature. The results of these decisions are compared with an analytic estimate

of the ‘true value’ of the measurand specified using this new standard.
