Full automation featured many problems, such as the difficulty of production changes, etc. Eventually, cell production, a human based production system, was introduced in the 1990's. The cell production system, however, features similar problems. Beginning in 2000, advanced cell production systems have been pursued, whereby production is accomplished through the harmonization of human operators and automatic machines. The aim of this study is to take the know-how that inspectors have unconsciously acquired on a daily basis and, transition the inspectors themselves to automated systems. To achieve this aim we established ROI macro commands and developed the ROI macro command system. About 80% of requests from manufacturing sites were fulfilled by using those 8 types of ROI macro commands Moreover, 488 sites used it on an actual basis As a result, we have concluded that the inspectors' know-how was passed on to external configuration inspections across a wide-range of fields.
