Model-Based Characteristic Working Group Update

DMSC Model-Based Characteristics (MBC) Working Group (WG) has created multiple iterations of a Model-Based standard for defining the nomenclature, definitions, symbols, practices, and data structures for the representation and communication of characteristics. The initial scope of the standard defines specific types and categories of model-based characteristics within a product definition, thus product characteristics. Furthermore, the scope fits and extends the…

Whitepaper – Why QIF Matters: A Road Map for Digital Manufacturing

Whitepaper on Why QIF Mattters: a Road Map for Digital Manufacturing

This paper was presented at the NIST MBE Summit in April 2019. It discusses how the ANSI DMSC Quality Information Framework (QIF) standard provides benefit to the Model-Based Enterprise (MBE) in two important ways: (1) automation of cyber-physical processes, allowing faster realization of higher quality products at lower cost, and (2) by providing traceability of massive quantities of measurement-related data…
