Jennifer Herron, DMSC BoD, presents What is QIF 3.0, an ANSI and ISO-approved standard enabling interoperability between Model-Based Definition (MBD), the digital intent, and 3D metrology inspection process measured results.

On November 9th, 2018, the ISO / TC 184 / SC 4 meeting in Chicago, Illinois (USA), approved by “Unanimous Consent” and was sent to Resolution M – Submission of Quality Information Framework (QIF) for Fast Track Ballot. In July 2020, ISO approved and entirely harvested the ANSI/DMSC QIF v3.0 standard, changing only the cover-sheet, copyright, headers, and footers. The ISO ballot includes an Explanatory report for harvesting QIF 3.0 into the ISO TC184 / SC4 Working Group 15 on Digital Manufacturing. It includes a mapping of entities found between STEP-AP 242 and QIF. The QIF website provides a free download of the schema and normative document. Access the QIF Community for a QIF schema browser, QIF sample instance files, QIF source code bindings, QIF “Issues” list, and getting started video. Finally, you can contact the DMSC with your questions at info@qifstandards.org.
