The authors propose an approach that uses coordinate measurements of the real surface to: (a) determine the real applied machine-tool settings, (b) determine the deviations of the real surface from the theoretical one, (c) minimize the deviations by correction of the machine-tool settings, and (d) represent the real surface analytically in the same Gaussian coordinates as the theoretical one.
