Welcome to the Website of the
  Dimensional Metrology Standards Consortium


The mission of Dimensional Metrology Standards Consortium (DMSC™, Inc.) is to identify urgently needed standards in the field of dimensional 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.  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.

What is QIF: PDF Print E-mail

QIF (Quality Information Framework) is an American National Standard supporting Digital Thread concepts in engineering applications ranging from product design through manufacturing to quality inspection. Based on the XML Standard, it contains a Library of XML Schema ensuring both data integrity and data interoperability in Model Based Enterprise implementation.

QIF supports Design, Metrology, Manufacturing, and is critical to the Industrial Revolution 4.0. Because it is XML based, QIF can be easily integrated with Web/Internet applications and unlike other existing standards, there is no competence barrier standing in the way for industry to adopt QIF. It also effectively supports new concepts such as IoT (Internet of Things).

Finally, all discrete manufacturing industries now have a standard platform that ensures quality while minimizing costs and making processes more transparent!  The QIF 2.1 Standard is available at no cost via download
