The Kern Electronic Coordinate Determination System (EGOS-1) is based on the philosophy that a digitally-based theodolite system can lower the cost of measurements in both the fabrication and inspection phases of large jigs, tools and parts. This philosophy assumes a desire on the part of the user to subject each project to rigorous control, from a management as well as a technical perspective. The Kern ECDS-1 package and its programs for job management, orientation, data collection and special function analysis of coordinate measurements are discussed.
