Next Version QIF – Phase 1 Conclusions Complete

15 August 22

QIF Next Gen Meeting 9/13/22 4pm at IMTS Rm E353COne of the key objectives for the DMSC is to promote adoption of QIF (Quality Information Framework) as an industrial digital metrology standard. While QIF 3.0 has been mainstream as an ANSI standard since 2018 and an ISO standard since 2020, the digital world continues to evolve. The DMSC understands that QIF needs to adapt to thrive in a world of multiple standards and disciplines.

Early in 2022, the DMSC hired Dr. Tom Kramer on a consulting basis to evaluate the current technical status of QIF 3.0, and determine what the next level of enhancement would be appropriate to keep QIF in a leadership position as a digital metrology standard. This initial effort was referred to as “Phase 1” of the Next Version QIF initiative. Over the last several months, Tom organized multiple public meetings designed to capture input from many sources, even those outside the DMSC community, about potential future enhancements for QIF.

On August 2, 2022 Tom held a public meeting to discuss his findings which identified a “laundry list” of items that could be changed/corrected/added to QIF 3.0, all with the objective of motivating the User community to further adopt QIF. Tom’s findings were extensive – his “Phase 1” report and conclusions are available for review on the DMSC SharePoint drive Meeting2022Aug2
