The special hardware and program written to test the system operating results versus the specification are provided. The fixture is used to measure the accuracy in the form of an offset, which is used to modify the instructions to locate the target. The cost of testing is considerably reduced, and the same program for commercially operating the system is used. Even if the fixture is skewed, it can still provide useful data.
