ASTM WK60469

    New Guide for Standard Guide for the Qualification and Control of the Computer Assisted Evaluation of Digital Radiographic Test Data

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Developed by Subcommittee: E07.01 | Committee E07 | Contact Staff Manager


    1. Scope

    Provide a standard terminology for the computer assisted evaluation of radiographic test data using software a.k.a. Assisted Defect Recognition (AssistDR). In addition to terminology, the guide will provide outline a process for qualification of inspections using computer assisted evaluation systems for use in a production environment. Guidelines for the the control of production processes using computer assisted data evaluation will be addressed.

    After the conversion from film to digital in the aerospace casting industry, aerospace casting suppliers would like to implement computer assisted evaluation of the digital test results to both improve quality and reduce costs. Since aerospace casting vendors provide castings to multiple customers, a single guideline for the qualification and control of systems using computer assisted evaluation is needed.

    The title and scope are in draft form and are under development within this ASTM Committee.
