This Software Has Zero Tolerance For Poor Measurements

When making parts for a jet engine, a fraction of a millimeter off spec can mean premature failure, or even catastrophe. At tolerances this tiny, builders have difficulty simply synchronizing the measurement systems used in different machine tools, or on parts received from suppliers. To benchmark all these systems, MetroSage of Volcano, Calif., has developed Pundit, a program that builds exquisitely accurate models of the uncertainty inherent in measuring machined parts.
