The Automotive Industry Action Group (AIAG) is working on the challenges of interconnecting components of automated dimensional metrology systems. Our presentation explains how products that support interoperability standards for components of metrology systems can save you time and money. The key is that components from different vendors, chosen by users, can be connected easily and effectively to build dimensional metrology systems. These capabilities have been demonstrated in trade show booths at IMTS 2004, Quality Expo 2005, and Control 2005. Applicable components include CAD systems, CMM programming and execution packages, CMMs, and analysis programs for part inspection and SPC. The applicable standards are: STEP, for conveying CAD data with GD&T, DMIS for inspection programs, I++DME for linking CMM execution software with CMMs, and DML for reporting CMM inspection results.
