Metrology Standards Consortium Appoints New Board Members

The Dimensional Metrology Standards Consortium, a member-based organization, is an ANSI Accredited Standards Developing Organization and an A-Liaison to ISO.

The mission of Dimensional Metrology Standards Consortium is to identify urgently needed standards in the field of dimensional metrology, and to promote, foster, and encourage the development and interoperability of these standards, along with related and supporting standards that will benefit the industry as a whole. The Dimensional Measuring Interface Standard (DMIS) and the Quality Information Framework (QIF) are two such standards that the DMSC has the responsibility to develop, maintain, and support, as well as to coordinate and harmonize with other related standards efforts.

Members of DMSC represent innovative organizations keeping pace with the latest trends and applications in the field of dimensional metrology.

“We have the privilege of welcoming two new 2018-2020 DMSC Board of Director Members:

Jennifer Herron of Action Engineering
Robert (Bob) Brown of Mitutoyo America

“Congratulations to Jennifer and Bob, and we look forward to the expertise they will bring to progressing the DMSC’s mission,” said Curtis Brown, President and DMSC Board of Directors Chair.

When asked about the importance of this Board position, Jennifer Herron commented: “Learning to implement Model-Based Definition requires a strong understanding of metrology (how your parts are measured). Action Engineering is excited to be involved with the DMSC to continue to provide ground-breaking methods and standards that leverage modern product definition people, processes, and tools.”

Jennifer Herron is the CEO of Action Engineering, a registered Women-Owned Small Business. Ms. Herron serves on the American Society of Mechanical Engineers as chair of the ASME Y14.46 Subcommittee on Product Definition for Additive Manufacturing and is a committee member of ASME Y14.41.1 Digital Product Definition Data: Model Organization Schema Practices, and ASME Y14.37 Composite Part Drawings. Including a patent for a snake propulsion mechanism, Ms. Herron has extensive experience with hardware design for flight satellite systems and military robot platforms. She is an expert in multiple CAD packages (e.g., Creo, NX, SOLIDWORKS) and is the author of Re-Use Your CAD: The Model-Based CAD Handbook, published in 2013.

Bob Brown is VP Operations at Mitutoyo and holds a a BS in Physics from the University of Wisconsin and an MBA from Northern Illinois University. 20 years of experience in metrology and manufacturing specializing in data acquisition, management, and analysis application development and deployment. Co-authored the book Information Modeling for Interoperable Dimensional Metrology with members of NIST.
