With the increasing amount of computing power available per pound of money spent, the computer becomes an attractive tool to provide continued and improved quality control without increasing cost penalties, assuming that the tool has been used correctly and that we do not find ourselves using a sledge hammer to crack a nut. Equally when looking for effective ways of quality assurance it must not be considered that adding on a computer will automatically reduce the test cost or indeed improve the test/inspection results. A fundamental understanding, possibly gained during the develop-ment stage of the production equipment, of the performance parameter to be assessed is invaluable to the engineer. Progress is then made towards an optimisation of the time/cost of testing to ensure that the quality requirement of the product is met with the minimum of testing, initiating computer help at this stage further aiding test costs. Computer aid is also most useful in the development of products enabling many detailed results to be taken and accurately recorded in the minimum time, the elapsed time aspects are important in most development contracts as the customer is usually most anxious to receive the early development models, sometimes at the expense of testing. It is therefore required to make the most use of the time available.
