Jennifer Herron, CEO of Action Engineering, has been elected to serve on the Dimensional Metrology Standards Consortium (DMSC) Board of Directors for a two-year term, effective January 2018.
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 DMSC has the responsibility to develop, maintain, and support, as well as to coordinate and harmonize with other related standards efforts.
Members of DMSC represent innovative organizations keeping pace with the latest trends and applications in the field of dimensional metrology.
“We have the privilege of welcoming two new 2018-2020 DMSC Board of Director Members:
Jennifer Herron of Action Engineering
Robert (Bob) Brown of Mitutoyo America
Congratulations to Jennifer and Bob, and we look forward to the expertise they will bring to progressing the DMSC’s mission,” said Curtis Brown, President and DMSC Board of Directors Chair.
When asked about the importance of this Board position, Jennifer Herron commented: “Learning to implement Model-Based Definition requires a strong understanding of metrology (how your parts are measured). Action Engineering is excited to be involved with the DMSC to continue to provide ground-breaking methods and standards that leverage modern product definition people, processes, and tools.”
