This proposal addresses a capability gap that hampers effective use of coordinate measuring machines CMMs in the assessment of geometric dimensioning and tolerancing GD and T callouts. It presents an opportunity to significantly enhance the value of information acquired, while dramatically reducing costs in terms of time and labor. Currently programming of a CMM for specific part measurement can be a tedious process, most commonly requiring manual input of GD and T specifications, manual stipulation of surface sampling strategies and of many other parameters. It is labor-intensive and prone to errors. Moreover, there is generally no a priori verification of the adequacy of selected sampling strategies or even of the CMM and sensor system targeted for the measurement tasks.
