(CMSC: Weatherford, TX) -- The Coordinate Metrology Society (CMS), in collaboration with UNC Charlotte, has completion of the first working meeting of the PrecisionPath Consortium for Large-Scale Manufacturing. The new project is funded by an Advanced Manufacturing Technology Consortia (AMTech) grant from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), an agency of the U.S. Commerce Department.

At the 2015 CMSC (Coordinate Metrology Society Conference) in July, the PrecisionPath Consortium held its inaugural meeting to discuss team-building strategies, short- and long-term goals, and project timelines. The group is tasked to identify and prioritize the technology needs of the aerospace, defense, energy, and other industries that manufacture large-scale, high-accuracy parts and products.

(CMS: Weatherford, TX) -- The Executive Board of the Coordinate Metrology Society (CMS), the eminent membership association for measurement professionals, has changed the name of its Coordinate Metrology Systems Conference (CMSC). The new name of the event is the Coordinate Metrology Society Conference. While the society retains the CMSC acronym, it has changed the “Systems” component to “Society” to realign the conference name with the organization.

The CMSC originated more than three decades ago in 1984 as industrial metrologists began to have different needs and goals from geospatial metrology users. The annual conference has provided a well-respected forum for the open exchange of ideas, problem-solving, and showcasing technology advancements through technical paper presentations and interaction with experts in the exhibition hall.

(CMSC: Benbrook, TX) -- The Coordinate Metrology Society (CMS) has announced the results of its fourth large-scale measurement study performed at the 29th annual Coordinate Metrology Systems Conference (CMSC) held in San Diego. The study was developed to support the CMS Level II Certification Examination development process, which will culminate in the industry’s first instrumentation-based certification program for portable 3D metrology. The study’s main focus was to evaluate how decisions made during and after measurement affect the final measurement result. The 50-page report, titled “Noncontact Scanning: How Data Are Affected by the Decisions We Make,” details the results and analysis of the interactive measurement study. The new report is now available for members of the CMS.
