Various methods of production sensitometric testing of lithographic films are investigated to establish correlation between a testing parameter and customer acceptance of line copy reproduction in the field. The chosen parameter, "gamma," is compared statistically for acceptable and unacceptable reproduction based on field appraisals. Results indicate that no correlation exists between the chosen testing parameter and field acceptance. Information is also obtained concerning the development and exposure conditions which yield acceptable line copy reproduction in the field.
