[[T-VEC_Vector_Generation_System|VGS]] is the core T-VEC technologies developed in the late 1980's and early 1990's. It is a rather mature technology, and has not changed in any real fundamental way since the documentation. Most of the default setting provide the optimal set of tests.  
  
 
[[Pilot Projects or Workshops]] are often the best way to get started with T-VEC tools.
