New Website is a valuable, global asset for Portable Metrologists
Feb 14, 2017 -- The Coordinate Metrology Society (CMS) today announced the unveiling of its brand refresh and new website. The CMS is the eminent membership association for measurement professionals, serving a worldwide community through its educational mandate, industry-recognized certifications and a yearly conference and exhibition. The new website serves as a hub for organizational and industry information, and can be accessed from any device. The CMS brand refresh aims to raise awareness of the non-profit organization and its mission, and over three decades of dedication to the field of portable measurement.
The Coordinate Metrology Society is evolving to reflect the rapidly changing manufacturing industry. The organization is embracing emerging trends and technologies such as reverse engineering, laser and LIDAR scanning, 3D sensing, 3D processing and visualization. The new CMS website offers improved navigation and social media networking for direct engagement with the CMS, as well enhanced online communications for those interested in the professional community. Coordinate Metrology Society publications can be viewed on-demand at the website, including the bi-yearly Journal of the CMSC, the quarterly CMSC World, and the monthly CMSC Corner, a live video segment covering CMS and industry topics of interest during Quality Digest Live.
"We have revamped the CMS website to better facilitate our members, so they can easily identify programs, certifications and events that are valuable to their careers going forward. It is an exciting and disruptive time to be in manufacturing as companies begin to move toward Industrie 4.0 and the Smart Factory. The need for measurement professionals is at an all time high, as a graying workforce of metrologists are retiring at a steady rate," states Keith Bevan, 2017 CMSC Chair. "The new website is a global asset for portable metrologists. The redesign also allows us to shine a light on our industry partners who offer immeasurable support for the Coordinate Metrology Society and its endeavors, year in and year out."
The website also provides an online CMS Members-only resource library of technical papers presented during the CMS-hosted Coordinate Metrology Society Conference (CMSC). This year's event will be held from July 17 - 21, 2017 at the Snowbird Meeting and Convention Center in Snowbird, Utah. Website enhancements for conference-related interaction include new sponsorship listings and categories, improved e-commerce navigation and purchasing functionality, easier-to-read daily agendas and access to information covering best practices, measurement strategies, and groundbreaking technology implementations.
