A Process for Selecting Standard Reference Algorithms for Evaluating Coordinate Measurement Software
Mary B. Algeo, Cathleen Diaz
Geometric fitting reference algorithms are used within the NIST Algorithm Testing System (ATS) to provide a performance baseline for comparison to other fitting algorithms. Test fit results are compared to fit results generated by the reference algorithms in the ATS. There exist other geometric fitting algorithms that could serve as references. This report proposes a process for selecting reference algorithms and establishing them as standard reference algorithms - a current baseline. The selection process for reference algorithms would lead to identifying standard reference algorithms for different objective functions. Such a program will allow organizations to submit algorithms that could be useful to the rest of the dimensional metrology community.
