To help NIST researchers better understand industry''s needs, four NIST laboratories held a Workshop on Advanced Methods and Models for Appearance of Coatings and Coated Objects on May 20, 1996. The four NIST laboratories are Building and Fire Research Laboratory (BFRL), Information Technology Laboratory (ITL), Manufacturing Engineering Laboratory (MEL) and Physics Laboratory (PL). Using coatings and coated products as a model system, industry representatives presented specific coating appearance measurement issues, NIST researchers described their proposal for a systems approach to advance the science of appearance measurements, and, in an open forum discussion, workshop attendees provided feedback on the ideas presented and additional recommendations.
