What is 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. QIF defines, organizes, and associates quality information including measurement plans, results, part geometry and PMI, measurement templates, resources, and statistical analysis. As a unified XML framework standard for computer-aided quality measurement systems, QIF enables the capture, use, and re-use of metrology-related information throughout the PLM/PDM domain.

What is DMSC?

The mission of Dimensional Metrology Standards Consortium 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.
