Locators that could be holes, slots or edges are used to build body assemblies and mate components. A lot of other manufacturing data and information, including measuring information, tooling information, assembly information, material information, releasing information and GD&T (Geometric Dimensioning anf Tolerancing) data, could link with locators to support manufacturing. It is very crucial to specify appropriate locators to produce high-quality vehicle bodies. Unfortunately, at this moment there are no systematic processes to help specify optimal locators' design and verify the information that goes with them.
