The automation of measurement processes has advantages but also has risks, generally related to the integrity of the data. Depending on the nature of the operations to be carried out and the required robustness and reliability, the use of automation in acquisition, processing and control should be adequately assessed by a validation procedure in order to assure the fulfilment of its requirements.
It is also important to have information about metrics that are able to evaluate the performance of these tools, allowing the traceability of errors and the knowledge of the complete set of data necessary to any correction procedure. The main risks involved, the performance evaluation and some notes on future trends are discussed.
