Inspection of cosmetic and scratch defects is purely objective at the operator level. The tools available are limited to training, physical examples, modules, and per- sonal experience of the operator. Numerous problems exist with possible defect passage with operator change and correlation between published specifications and those actually in effect due to human perceptions. To quantify the inspection criteria and attempt to regulate the material some form of automated inspection is nec- essary. The following algorithm was developed to meet this need.
