Abstract

Automotive panel manufacture is an important industrial activity. Research in this area has recently been assisted by a European Community funded research programme on three-dimensional characterisation of steel sheet. This paper describes the results of the first part of the programme in which the emphasis is on a Round Robin Test of the partners measuring equipment. Software was identified as being one of the major causes of variability. It is concluded that standard and stable algorithms are a necessity to ensure reliable interchange of data.
