  • A process for fitting a curve to approximate data and the problem it creates for the engineer-programmer is defined. An approach has also been defined and a system has been written for the SRU 1107 to mechanize a major portion of this process. The techniques developed to accomplish the mechanization are largely empirical, and are dependent for their information only on the actual data points.
