It is what drives productivity on the shop floor, puts quality in the hands of the machinist and quickly weeds out process problems before they become catastrophic. Measuring calipers have been around for nearly 150 years. In

Several alternative methods exist to, in varying degrees, meet this challenge, and their discussion comprises the major portion of the body of this paper. While the methods presented represent viable alternatives, each one does represent
