The Coordinate Metrology Society (CMS) today announced the results of their third large-scale measurement study conducted at the 28th annual Coordinate Metrology Systems Conference (CMSC) held in New Orleans, LA.  The 2012 measurement study was developed to support the organization’s Certification Cognitive Examination development process, which will culminate in the industry’s first level-one personnel Certification program for portable 3D metrology. The study’s main focus was to test the methodology of practical testing rather than the evaluation of the measurement results. The 83-page report entitled “The Importance of Practical Testing” details the results and analysis of the interactive measurement study.  Metrology is the science of measurement, and professionals in this field work in diverse industries such as aerospace, automotive, power generation, and more.

Over a two day period, more than 90 CMSC conference attendees participated in a data collection activity that provided a hands-on challenge, regardless of experience with large volume measurement systems. The study was coordinated by the National Physical Laboratory (UK) and event sponsor Metrologic Group, assisted by members of the CMS Certification Committee, Coventry University, and volunteers from many OEMs and software developers in the metrology industry. Author Keith Bevan from the National Physical Laboratory performed statistical analysis of the study and compiled those conclusions into the new report, which was peer-reviewed by the organization’s Executive and Certification Committees.

An evaluation of the appropriateness of practical testing was undertaken during the measurement study, involving the use of an articulated arm and/or a laser tracker measuring either a dedicated test piece or a motorcycle product.  Notably, over a third of the participants had less than 5 years of measurement experience, while 64% were veteran metrologists with more than 5 years of hands-on experience. 41% of the study’s participants take weekly measurements.

Nearly 95% participated in the measurement study conducted in 2011. A workshop was held on the third day of the conference to review the results and to ascertain information about future measurement studies for CMSC.

The Coordinate Metrology Society (CMS), the eminent membership association for measurement professionals, announced today it will host a series of “pilot” certification examinations at their 28th annual Coordinate Metrology Systems Conference (CMSC), July 16-20, 2012, at The Roosevelt Hotel in New Orleans, LA. The CMS Certification Committee will conduct pilot examinations free of charge each day during the five-day event. Conference attendees, both experts and novices, are encouraged to test their general knowledge of portable 3D metrology and contribute to the success of the first level-one Certification program in the industry.

In 2009, the CMS Certification Committee began work toward a personnel certification program. This year’s pilot examinations are the final step in a rigorous process to create an academically sound and legally defensible assessment. The test results will be used to validate and weigh the examination questions, and determine a cut-score. Participants will not be graded and will not receive certification upon conclusion of the examination. CMS members will also review the eligibility requirements for the certification and provide feedback during the conference.

In the past three years, the dedicated CMS Certification Committee has drafted a core body of knowledge and identified the American Society of Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing (ASPRS) as their partner organization to support the certification effort. Formal documents defining roles, responsibilities, authority, and accountability have been crafted and reviewed by each organization’s Executive Committees. The Coordinate Metrology Society expects to have an industry-recognized, level-one personnel certification in portable 3D metrology by the end of 2012, and later plans to deploy a level-two equipment-specific certification that would include laser trackers, area scanners, laser radars, hand-held scanners and data post processing.
