Foundations of MPs -- The Path to Automation
Metrologists are often faced with measurement processes that are repetitive and time consuming. It's not uncommon for a set of measurements to be taken repeatedly under different conditions and with different materials in order to maintain quality control. How many times have you wished you could push a play button and have the software drive the instruments, take the measurements, and build a report?
Automation is an obvious solution, but the question metrologists often face is: Is building a Measurement Plan worth the effort, or is it easier to trudge through repetitive, time-consuming tasks?
Click here for a few examples of scripting in SpatialAnalyzer® (SA) that illustrate how simple it can be to build basic Measurement Plans.

Fermi National Accelerator Lab:
Using SA Means Greater Efficiency & Accuracy
Founded in 1967, Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory (FNAL, or Fermilab) in Batavia, IL specializes in high-energy particle physics research. To service the alignment needs of the accelerator complex, the metrologists at Fermilab have used SpatialAnalyzer® (SA) with their laser tracker systems since 2000. Laser trackers provide the backbone for most of Fermilab's metrology tasks such as optical tooling, surveying, measurement, and aligning. Click here to learn how Fermilab uses SA and laser trackers.
