This chapter presents a model of prismatic measurement parts (PMPs) inspection planning on CMMs, in terms of an intelligent system of inspection planning. The developed model is composed of mathematical model, inspection feature construction, sampling strategy, probe accessibility analysis, automated collision-free generation and probe path planning. The proposed model presents a novel approach for the automatic inspection and a basis for the development of an integrated, intelligent system of inspection planning. The advantages of this approach imply the reduction of preparation time due to an automatic generation of a measuring protocol, a possibility for the optimisation of measuring probe path, i.e. the reduction of time needed for the actual measurement and analysis of a workpiece setup, as well as an automatic configuration of measuring probes.
