A computer assisted system for the control of vehicle alignment has been developed which has greatly increased the outgoing quality of vehicle alignment at assembly facilities. Employing the use of a computer with communication links to automated alignment setting fixtures provides a means for effectively maintaining process control of vehicle alignment. This is accomplished by inputting alignment audit data into a computer to be organized and analyzed for the purpose of determining “mean deviations” and then automatically generating set point changes at appropriate stations via programmable controllers and data highway communications.
