Paper Abstract

A very large percentage of the inspection tasks carried out by human inspectors in manufacturing plants rely primarily on visual examination. The reason for this is the fact that a large number of defects in mass produced parts can be spotted very quickly by a trained observer inspecting the product. Unlike other forms of inspection that may rely on a variety of sequential measurements, visual examination is in general very fast. This is due primarily to the fact that the eye and brain can acquire and process information regarding the exterior appearance of the part in parallel, and make a decision based on a multiplicity of features almost at once.
