Metrology drives upstream quality

Quality drives productivity and is now, more than ever, seen as an enabler for advanced manufacturing, rather than a cost that has to be endured," stated Ken Woodbine, president of the Metrology Software Division at Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence (North Kingstown, RI). He also stressed that a metrology process that simply reports measurements accurately may not be enough. Quality engineers must create measurement programs that give confidence that the part is meeting the measurement intent of the design and designer as well as the needs of the assembly the part is going into. The art of creating measurement programs is still commonly done as in the past, through highlighted mark-ups of 2D paper drawings or even informal discussions with on-site designers. But these are proving insufficient and even archaic in an increasingly global and complex supply chain.
