    Verify accuracy of and adjust precision devices, such as meters and gauges, testing instruments, clock and watch mechanisms, to ensure operation of device is in accordance with design specifications.

    Inspects materials, products, and work in progress for conformance to specifications, and adjusts process or assembly equipment to meet standards. Reads dials and meters to verify functioning of equipment according to specifications. Tests and measures finished products, components, or assemblies for functioning, operation, accuracy, or assembly to verify adherence to functional specifications. Marks items for acceptance or rejection, records test results and inspection data, and compares findings with specifications to ensure conformance to standards. Completes necessary procedures to satisfy licensing requirements. Computes and/or calculates data and other information. Confers with vendors and others regarding inspection results and recommends corrective procedures. Disassembles defective parts and components. Estimates operational data to meet acceptable standards. Operates or tends machinery and equipment, and uses hand tools. Discards or rejects products, materials, and equipment not meeting specifications. Analyzes and interprets blueprints, sample data, and other materials to determine, change, or measure specifications or inspection and testing procedures.
