Welcome to the Website of the
  Dimensional Metrology Standards Consortium

The mission of Dimensional Metrology Standards Consortium (DMSC™, Inc.) is to identify urgently needed standards in the field of dimensional metrology, and to promote, foster, and encourage the development and interoperability of these standards, along with related and supporting standards that will benefit the industry as a whole.  The Dimensional Measuring Interface Standard (DMIS) is one such standard that the consortium has the responsibility to develop, maintain and support as well as to coordinate and harmonize with other related standards efforts.  The DMSC is an ANSI Accredited Standards Developing Organization, as well as an A-Liaison to ISO.  The consortium invites participation within the consortium of other standards groups and activities that seek to resolve the technology and other issues of automated (digital) metrology.

ANSI Approves new QIF v2.0

Burleson, Texas, USA November 20, 2014 The (DMSC, Inc.) Dimensional Metrology Standards Consortium announced today the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) has approved QIF v 2.0 (Quality Information Framework, version 2.0) as an American National Standard.  This new standard enhances the previous ANSI Standard, QIF V1.0 containing quality planning and measurement results, by providing a complete and accurate 3D product definition with semantic geometric and dimensional tolerances, definitions for measurement resources, template for measurement rules, and statistical functionality.  All of this to satisfy the digital interoperability needs for a wide variety of use cases including feature-based dimensional metrology, quality measurement planning, first article inspection, and discrete quality measurement.

A New and Integrated Approach to Quality Measurement Standards leads to a Reorganization of the DMSC
The DMSC, Inc. launched a New and Integrated Approach to Quality Measurement Standards definition and development on August 11, 2010.  Under this new approach, the Quality Information Framework (QIF) calls for an entirely new standards committee structure for coordination and compatibility To learn about the QIF visit the QIF Standards Website.   The site contains a lot of valuable information which will impact the entire industry. 

The QMS (Quality Measurement Standards) Committee is the consensus body for the DMSC.  All Working groups within the structure of the Quality Information Framework (QIF) coordinate their efforts.  When ready for standardization, the QIF provides the results to the QMS to progress as standards.  To see the most recent QMS structure document (words and pictures, version 8) CLICK HERE! 

Dimensional Metrology Standards Consortium
Introduction and How to Participate;
also, Benefits and Justification

In today’s environment, standards are essential to national and international economies, to world trade, and to the success of individual companies.  Lack of interoperability between manufacturing automation systems is known to waste hundreds of millions of dollars every year.  A new organization, the Dimensional Metrology Standards Consortium (DMSC), Inc., has been established which recognizes the critical importance of industrial manufacturing and metrology standards.  The objective of the consortium is to take an active role in the establishment and coordination of these existing and emerging technologies.  (Click on any Topic Heading in these pages for more information.)
