The mission of Digital Metrology Standards Consortium (DMSC™, Inc.) is to identify urgently needed standards in the field of digital 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) and the Quality Information Framework (QIF) are two such standards that the consortium has the responsibility to continue development, 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. QIF was harvested by the International Standards Organization and elevated to ISO 23952:2020 in August 2020. 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.
DMSC QIF Working Groups
Members of the Digital Metrology Standards Consortium (DMSC) chair multiple working groups responsible for governance and maintenance of the current standard, development of improvements, updates as well as the marketing and education of the community implementing the QIF standard.

The need for a common communication language in the CAD arena in 1983 ultimately lead to the formation of the Digital Metrology Standards Consortium (DMSC), formerly known as Dimensional Metrology Standards Consortium.
