There were four nominees for the two open 2022 – 2024 term DMSC Board of Director positions, with Sam Gambrell (Lockheed Martin), and Jeremy Hamilton (John Deere) being the successfully elected candidates. Both Sam and Jeremy are new Board members and their service will commence immediately.
The Board of Directors (BoD) oversee the strategy for the Digital Metrology Standards Consortium mission, and Directors serve three-year terms. The DMSC election process included votes from 55% of the eligible DMSC membership companies, so thank you to those that participated.
Last year was an outstanding year for DMSC, and with some new leadership, expectations are high for 2022. Goals include a soon-to-be submitted Model-Based Product Characteristics standard (ANSI draft), and a 2022 anticipated release of QIF 3.1. Other substantial projects are in the planning stages.
Founded in 2005, the DMSC is a non-profit consortium organization with the responsibility of developing and maintaining the QIF standard (ISO 23952:2020), and other metrology standards. The broader DMSC mission is to promote, foster, and develop interoperability standards and quality data frameworks for the manufacturing field of digital metrology. The purpose of these digital metrology standards is to positively impact the digital thread for the Model-Based Enterprise (MBE).
