Viewpoint: Bill Fetter, Hexagon Metrology

Bill Fetter, Director of Marketing and Communications for Hexagon Metrology discusses the problem of the lack of skilled metrologists.

 

The U.S. Department of Labor does not recognize metrology as a profession. Neither the word "quality" or "metrologist" appear in the Standard Occupational Classification System. With very few young people going into metrology, U.S. manufacturing will face a severe lack of measurement and inspection professionals in the very near future.

Profiles in Quality: Rina Molari
We interview Rina Molari, a senior metrologist who measures very large objects for the aerospace industry. Rina is also the past-chair of the Coordinate Measurement Society.
