1.7 Digital measuring

Considerations [uses Heading 2 style above]

  • Pre-Operation Checklist is a prerequisite for ANY operation.
  • Jobsite specific OSHA approved personal protective equipment is worn.
  • System is inspected and inventoried and found to be in good working order.

Pre-Operation Checklist

Performance Standard -

Laser Templating
  • Coordinates with the engineers and knows exactly which "as built" measurements are necessary for the final design
  • Positions the system in the best location to capture the data
  • Powers on the system and starts a new file
  • Demonstrates some knowledge of a Cartesian coordinate system (Origin, X Direction, Y Direction and Z direction)

Photo Templating
  • Coordinates with the engineers and knows exactly which "as built" measurements are necessary for the final design.
  • Demonstrates some knowledge of a Cartesian coordinate system (Origin, X Direction, Y Direction and Z direction)
