QIF is the Quality Information Framework, a suite of XML based data models that contain everything from model definitions with associated GD&T, inspection plans, inspection results, to multi-part statistics in a common QIF document format. The new QIF 2.0 standard has been approved by the Dimensional Metrology Standards Consortium (DMSC) for progression to an ANSI standard and will be out for public review this fall.
Long time Origin International Associate, Bob Stone, was recognized for his contribution to the new QIF set of standards at the recent DMSC meeting at Hilton Head Island in South Carolina last week.
