We concerned with the methodology of automatic fastener placement that reduces the gap between the parts of the wing. The gap is assumed to be of stochastic nature, therefore, it is modeled as a random field. The major issue we ran into is lack of sufficient amount of data, thus, a special small sample statistical estimator for the random field parameters is used. As a final result, the procedure is proposed to successively install the fasteners in such a way that their placement suits multiple wings at once, reducing the gap to a certain level.
