Have you heard of the digital quality infrastructure? The Digital SI? Digital calibration certificates (DCCs)? Cubyt? NCSLI's measurement information infrastructure (MII) initiative? These and other globally scattered initiatives will all help upgrade our industry from Metrology 2.5 to Metrology 4.0 by automating our remaining manual systems via networked digital measurement data. Laboratories have long since automated many of their test and measurement processes, but the global quality infrastructure remains mired in paper and PDF documents that a) require subject-matter experts to generate, interpret and use; and b) omit information that would have value if automatically generated, exchanged and put to use.

Most of the metrology software we used today was developed by the manufacturer in an effort to help sell their hardware, making metrology software highly segregated and harder to maintain as regulatory requirements and technologies change. As we move into Industry 4.0 and the Internet-Of-Things (IoT) these changes are going to come at an even faster pace, making it even harder to maintain and support code.
This is why much of the software industry is moving towards Model-Driven Engineering built around the idea of low-Code or no-code development models. Meaning, how can we perform the same task with little to no software development. A world where software doesn’t have to be written again and again, instead Model-Driven Engineering drives the software in the direction of sustainability.
Working with the NCSLI - MII Committee we are trying to build the foundation for a strong model-based industry standard that can build upon. This model will help build better tools, reusable resources, as well as data and information exchanges.
In this webinar, I would like to zero in on what is meant by Model-Driven Engineering and how it can be used to make better metrology software.
