He will cover the recent implementation of the HexagonMI Idea Center and its impact on software development moving forward.

Another high-level presentation will provide a firsthand look at the latest revisions to ASME and ISO GD&T standards and deliberate its impact on the industry in the future. The session will be led by Rob Jensen, chair of ASME Y14.5.1 Math Committee, member of Y14.5, US TAG to ISO and Product Owner for GD&T inside the Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence Metrology Software Product Line. Other highlights include a Workflow Optimization Workshop for shop-floor metrology users, and track sessions covering point cloud inspection, metrology data management and applied statistical process control (SPC), how to solve high accuracy and freeform metrology workflows, and much more.
