GE AppliancesGEA’s Digital Journey Using QIF + 3D Scanning by Evan Kessick and David Leone, GE Appliances

Machine vs. Human Readability: How we employ QIF and 3D Scanning

GE Appliances is in the business of making machines and humans work together every day. Not only in the kitchen and laundry room, but on the shop floor as well.  We’ll share GEA’s modern approach to the digital journey and how we Trust Digital including our investment in people, looking at data as machine readable and/or people readable. We’ll include how we incorporate QIF and digital metrology, 3D scanning, timelines, and yes, our “aha” moment.
