The DMSC Board of Director election recently concluded and DMSC has announce the results. There were two 2021 – 2023 term DMSC Board of Director positions available, with Jennifer Herron (Action Engineering) being re-elected, and the election of Larry Maggiano (Mitutoyo), as a new Board member. The new/renewed Board members will commence their service immediately.

Jennifer Herron is the CEO of Action Engineering, a registered Women-Owned Small Business. She serves on the following standards organization committees: ASME MBE Standards Committee, AIAG TDP Working Group, ASME Y14.46 Digital Product Definition for Additive Manufacturing, ASME Y14.47 Digital Product Definition Data: Model Organization Schema Practices. Herron has extensive experience with hardware design, spacecraft flight hardware mechanisms and structures, deployed radiators, ground robotics, and spacecraft layout. In addition to her involvement in many flight satellite systems, Ms. Herron has designed military robot platforms and has multiple patents for a snake propulsion mechanism. Ms. Herron regularly leads training courses and consults on model-based topics. She is an MBD expert in multiple CAD packages, such as Creo, NX, and SOLIDWORKS.

With over 30 years’ experience in quality assurance and dimensional metrology, Larry Maggiano brings considerable technological experience and expertise to the Digital Metrology Standards Consortium. Notable is his involvement in standards development as Senior Systems Analyst for Mitutoyo America Corporation, he previously held positions at Mitutoyo in Service, Applications, and Software Development. Prior to Mitutoyo, Larry worked in product assurance in both the energy and medical device sectors. His early academic focus was Biological and Computer Sciences (University of California) but he later switched to Manufacturing Technology (College of DuPage). Larry’s is a member of ASME Y14.41, 14.46, 14.47, and the MBE SC Support Group. In addition, he represents Mitutoyo at PDES, Inc. (an ISO/TC 184/SC4 A-Liaison like the DMSC) and is on the PDES Board of Directors and Technical Advisory Committee. On behalf of Mitutoyo and in furtherance of standards based interoperability, he participated in the development and testing of DMIS, AP242, QIF, MTConnect and is knowledgeable in the CAx-IF testing protocol. Projects include PDES’ Testing the Digital Thread, NIST’s Design to Manufacturing and Inspection, NIST’s Validation for Downstream Computer-Aided Manufacturing and Coordinate Metrology Processes, and DMDII’s Operate, Orchestrate and Originate (O3). More recently, Larry is providing support for the NIST/CCAM Intelligent Flexible Manufacturing Testbed project. He actively uses major CAD systems (e.g. NX, Creo, CATIA, SolidWorks, Inventor) as well
utilities like the NIST STEP File Analyzer and NIST QIF PMI Report Software.
