|Title:||Interoperability Testing for Shop Floor Measurement|
|Published:||December 28, 2007|
|Abstract:||Manufactured parts are typically inspected to ensure quality. Inspection involves equipment and software from many different vendors, and interoperability is a major problem faced by manufacturers. The I++ Dimensional Measuring Equipment (DME) specification was developed to solved interoperability problems, and enable seamless integration of data throughout the inspection process. This paper describes validation testing of the I++ DME specification. The testing was intended to improve the standard, and also to speed up its adoption by vendors. Testing issues are described, and a software test suite is detailed. Interoperability testing with real equipment was done over several years, and lessons learned from the testing will be presented. The paper concludes with recommendations for improving this type of testing.|
