Abstract: Quality measurement is an integrated part of modern manufacturing systems. As the manufacturing industry has entered a digital and virtual era, information technology has become increasingly important for both machining and measurement systems. Effec ...

4. Quality Information Framework ‹ Integrating Metrology Processes
Published: 5/25/2012
Authors: Fiona Zhao, Thomas Rollin Kramer, John A Horst, William G Rippey, Robert Brown
Abstract: As defined by major dimensional metrology system users and suppliers, the Quality Information Framework (QIF) is an integrated and holistic set of information models which, if widely adopted, can enable the effective exchange of metrology data throug ...

5. Validating the Inspection Results Specification of the Quality Information Framework (QIF)
Published: 4/1/2011
Authors: Fiona Zhao, William G Rippey
Abstract: The Quality Information Framework (QIF) is a new standards effort to define standard information interfaces in dimensional inspection. Validating a specification means ensuring that the specification can express all of the data needed by consumers ...
