ARLINGTON, TX-DMIS 5.1, the latest version of the DMIS dimensional metrology standard, was formally approved by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) in November 2007. DMIS version 5.1 has the official designation ANSI/DMIS 105.1-2007, Part 1.

DMIS 5.1 improves upon the December 2004 release of DMIS 5.0 with approximately 95 resolutions from submitted standard improvement requests (SIRs) along with other improvements and enhanced capabilities. Resolutions included removal of known ambiguities, support of DML, change in line-length limitation, added recalibrate sensors, refreshed scope verbiage, updates EBNF characterization file and addressed I++/DME support.

Curtis Brown, chairman of the DMIS Standards Committee and Honeywell FM&T principal engineer says, “DMIS 5.1 is a consensus-based standard. It will give dimensional metrologists the opportunity to create application-valid CMM (coordinate measuring machine) measurement part programs, as well as a neutral interoperability format for communicating metrology data in a model-based environment.”

DMIS 5.1 will be distributed under the sponsorship of the Dimensional Metrology Standards Consortium (DMSC Inc.).
