The ANSI Standard Quality Information Framework (known as QIF) is a feature-based ontology of manufacturing quality metadata, built on XML technology, and semantically linked to the CAD model. A group of leading CAD and metrology software providers have teamed up to demonstrate a state-of-the-art digital metrology workflow for IMTS 2016.
The starting point for this workflow is a CAD model with PMI, in either PTC Creo or SolidWorks.
Then, we run through the following processes: the QIF model is generated, balloon numbers are added and measurement resources are assigned to PMI, caliper measurements are carried out, and a CMM workflow is carried out. After all of this, we have a QIF MBD model, QIF Plan data, and a set of QIF Results data. This data can now be cross-referenced, analyzed, and visualized by a variety of software packages.
