Easy Steps to Standardize an H-Point Program

Working for FARO (specifically in the Detroit area), I noticed that several companies are interested in creating and running a program to successfully check H-points (or Hip Points) on seats. The location of the H-Point allows automotive designers to improve seating comfort predicting where the average occupant sits relative to the top of the car or getting in/out of the car. Most seats are checked with a standardized adjustable dummy (Oscar) designed to represent the most common occupants. […]

We think of this function as a means to automate a repeat inspection for a user that has not had extensive FARO training. Although this is true, there are other uses for this function that may be overlooked. This is a great tool to intricately describe and show the user how to probe and measure particular features of a repeat part inspection however, it can also be used to quickly show a novice user how to inspect a part if your parts are similar in shape.
