Verisurf Software will present an open platform strategy for rapid quality inspection and reporting from first article to full production across the manufacturing enterprise. Using Boeing D6-51991 Rev L as a sample process we will demonstrate how to implement Verisurf software and the latest hardware technology to quickly create compliant first article inspection reports that satisfy the customer’s requirements followed by full-scale production CMM programming, operation and quality reporting.

Learn How:

· To review Model Based Definition (MBD) authority dataset, perform translation validation and alignment transformation reporting.

· To create inspection plans for ‘shop floor portable’ and ‘measurement lab programmable’ CMMs that accelerate production.

· To use MBD CAD models with intelligent GD&T annotations to automate inspection planning.

· To leverage open standards-based software that empowers manufacturing companies to reduce cost.

· To deliver customized inspection plans with point feature ID maps that gain fast source inspector approval.

· A single user interface lowers training, technical support, and software maintenance costs.

· To implement what you just learned to make improvements in your manufacturing.
