Part 3 of the standard VDI/VDE/VDMA 2632, which gives guidelines on machine vision integration, has been published by the Association of German Engineers, VDI, and the VDMA.
VDI/VDE/VDMA 2632 part 3 puts forward acceptance tests for classifying the performance of machine vision systems. The standard does so with the aid of examples from industrial inspection.
The various acceptance concepts, such as acceptance on the basis of sample catalogues and acceptance by reference to products from current production, are also discussed, together with their respective advantages and disadvantages. The standard is intended for users and suppliers alike, and should help at an early stage in avoiding communication pitfalls.
Part 2 of VDI/VDE/VDMA 2632 was ratified as an official G3 standard earlier in the year. Part 2 provides a guideline for preparing technical and functional specifications in machine vision.
