Session topic: Industry 4.0 and Model-Based

Enterprise for Quality Assurance – Inspection

Efficiencies, Design Inputs, and Manufacturing Outputs The Industry 4.0 roadmap helps us visualize the path toward a complete digital enterprise, as model-based enterprises (MBE) use today’s 3D CAD models to contain and provide rich content information to create, connect, and fully track relevant information for a part through its entire life cycle.

MBE can contain product and manufacturing information (PMI) including design intent, specifications, tolerances, toolpaths, and reporting standards. It provides interoperability, standardized methods and processes, and information efficiencies across design, supply chain, manufacturing, and quality assurance for a worldwide factory network.

This presentation will focus on one portion of this continuum – quality assurance, and its neighboring disciplines, and will explore the following:

  • What design intent information resides within a MBE CAD model that can promote quality assurance efficiency and correctness?
  • How can inspection machines use PMI and MBE for automatic programming to minimize machine downtime and maximize inspection throughput?
  • How can quality assurance output data improve, define, and control manufacturing methods?
How does quality assurance use data organization and standardized reporting methods in a model to provide results in an annotated and organized manner – usable in a common form by all disciplines in the product life cycle? Get these questions answered and begin to understand today’s best practices in quality assurance and cross-discipline part inspection methods.

OGP offers precision video and multi-sensor coordinate measuring systems for dimensional inspection, designed and manufactured at our corporate headquarters in Rochester, New York. We have more than 70 years of industry experience, making the products that fit a range of categories including; multi-sensor metrology, optical inspection, video measurement, laser scanning, and more.
