German to English translations [PRO] Tech/Engineering / surface inspection systems
German term or phrase:Fehlerausprägung
Veränderungen in der Fehlerausprägung reduzieren die Systemleistung
I can't get my head around this one and the deadline is looming....
It has to do with how pronounced the defect is so that the inspection system can recognise it. I need something short and sweet. I can't use intensity as the surfaces are inspected by cameras, and light intensity is constantly being mentioned.
Any help greatly appreciated.
Thanks to everyone for their help. John's answer was what I was looking for, but I couldn't use conspicuousness, so I used degree of prominence and paraphrased the defect bit. 4 KudoZ points were awarded for this answer
Changes in the level of fault tolerance reduce system output
A 'Fehler' is not necessarily a 'defect'. can be a simple misread or temporary snafu or misapplication. 'Fault' is more all-inclusive than 'error' (error message is something specific), 'fault' is more 'generic'
