Title: Update on DMIS Certification
Published: October 01, 2009
Abstract: The Dimensional Standards Consortium (DMSC) and the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) announced the rollout of the DMSC's DMIS Certification Program at the International Manufacturing Technology Show (IMTS), September 2008. The announcement was accompanied by a demonstration of the exchange of DMIS-compliant measurement programs from three competing metrology suppliers, each programming and executing the same DMIS level 2 prismatic measurement task on two CMMs in the booth. The certification process is a step in ensuring that the output of one vendor's product can be successfully input and executed by the product of another vendor. The benefits to users of DMIS products are savings of time and money, enabled by effortless interoperability of DMIS programming and execution products from different vendors.
