Abstract The subject of this project is to investigate the possibilities for development of a new artifact for calibration of optical coordinate measuring machines. The present report contains some of the basic procedures and tools which are needed to use when development of a new product is going to be executed. The project is based upon the general procedures which are needed for obtaining a successful result in modern development of new products. The report can roughly be divided in the following main areas: • Basic principles for measuring with CMM. The construction of the machines and the types of probes are explained. The general principles for measuring and traceability are explained. • Investigation of market and needs. The market of brands and types of optical CMMs is investigated. A survey of the use of optical CMMs in industry is carried out. Existing methods and artifacts for calibration of CMMs are investigated. • Measurements and investigations done in laboratory. Investigations of procedures for measuring and calibration are carried out in the laboratory. • Basic specifications. A list with the basic specifications for the new standard (artifact) for calibration of optical CMMs is made on basis of the investigations. • Manufacturing possibilities. The different possibilities for manufacturing of the product are investigated and evaluated. • Proposals for a new artifact. Proposals for a new artifact are worked out and presented. Evaluation of the proposals is done. • Marketing management. General principles for marketing management are explained in connection with the topical product. An example for promotion is made.
