At Action Engineering, we digitally connect your manufacturing lifecycle by charting your 3D path from requirements through sustainment. Our strategic program comprises a four-step process – Ready, Set, Go, Grow – which creates manufacturing resiliency tailored to the unique attributes of your company. This simple framework organizes your 3D digital transformation initiative to keep you on track. In addition to our Strategic Program, we offer OSCAR, a curated toolkit of 3D standards-compliant learning. OSCAR is the atlas of the Ready, Set, Go, Grow framework. Action Engineering experts are your compass during your journey and turn talk into action by bringing you deep expertise, breadth in our approach, and genuine feedback.
ITI began in 1983 with a mission to help manufacturers drive innovation and time to market by applying computer-aided product development to engineering problems. Since then, the increased use of product development software and engineering systems across the enterprise created complex integration and interoperability obstacles that our clients could not overcome on their own. Today, ITI specializes in conversion, integration, validation, and migration solutions for product data and related systems. In 2019 ITI became a wholly-owned subsidiary of Wipro Limited, a leading global information technology, consulting, and business process services company.
Belcan is a proven industry leader, engineering better outcomes for our customers for over 60 years. Belcan consistently earns trust by taking a performance-driven, partnering approach to provide value-added solutions with speed and scalability.
Belcan Digital Solutions is your trusted partner to bridge strategy and engineering execution to achieve your Model-Based Enterprise.
For 15+ years, Anark has dedicated itself to collaboration and innovation from product design to delivery to sustainment by providing provide visual collaboration software for manufacturers.

Kubotek Kosmos empowers specialized software to utilize engineering data from numerous sources at high-fidelity and optimal performance. Our applications in manufacturing assure many of the world’s most advanced build-to-print suppliers creating complex aerospace components that precise part definitions are being exchanged correctly between engineering systems. Our flexible direct CAD products are popular in tooling design and unconstrained conceptual modeling. The proprietary multi-platform geometric technology, available for licensing, implements the latest hardware and software standards to speed time to market, reduce costs, and improve quality.
Kubotek Kosmos development and support staff are based in Marlborough, Massachusetts. It operates through a wholly-owned US subsidiary of Kubotek Corporation which is headquartered in Osaka, Japan.
Sigmetrix helps companies produce better products through solutions that focus on managing the impact of mechanical variation. Products include CETOL 6σ, a fully integrated 3D tolerance analysis solution enable designers and engineers to understand the impact of part and assembly variation on the fit and performance of their products, EZtol, a 1D analysis tool offering numerous advantages over spreadsheet-based analyses, and GD&T Advisor, an interactive tool that provides expert guidance on the correct application of GD&T.
InnovMetric is an independent software development company that empowers manufacturers of every size to digitally transform their 3D measurement processes. InnovMetric revolutionized 3D metrology with the introduction of point-cloud-based dimensional inspection in 2000 and the concept of a universal 3D metrology software platform in 2006. Today, with over 20,000 customers in 100 countries, and the world’s largest industrial manufacturers having adopted its PolyWorks® solutions as their standard 3D metrology software platform, InnovMetric is focusing on creating next-generation digital data and process management technologies. Headquartered in Quebec City, Canada, InnovMetric is a multinational organization with 550 employees dedicated to bringing 3D measurement data at the heart of enterprise manufacturing processes.
Dimensional Control Systems Inc. (DCS) is the developer of CAD integrated tolerance analysis software 3DCS Variation Analyst, and quality management platform QDM. To support its software offerings, DCS provides engineering consulting, project services, GD&T training, and employment solution. With a global team of resellers, DCS has provided solutions to manufacturers in every region of the world.
3DCS Variation Analyst is integrated into Catia V5, CREO, SOLIDWORKS, NX, 3DEXPERIENCE, and as a stand-alone, allowing engineers to analyze assembly methods, manufacturing processes, and tolerance stacks while incorporating GD&T, Finite Element Analysis, fixtures, sub-assemblies, processes, and other complex inputs. Used by major manufacturers like Jaguar Land Rover, Stellantis, Boeing, LG, GE Appliance, Philips Medical, 3DCS has been proven to provide results in reduced costs, faster to market design phases, and improved build quality.
The Quality Information Framework (QIF) is a unified XML framework standard for computer-aided quality QIF systems, available free to all implementers. QIF enables the capture, use, and re-use of metrology-related information throughout the Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) and Product Data Management (PDM) domains.
QIF was created by The Digital Metrology Standards Consortium (DMSC). DMSC is responsible for the development, maintenance, and support of the QIF standard (ISO 23952:2020), as well as the Dimensional Measuring Interface Standard. The DMSC is an ANSI-accredited Standards Developing Organization as well as an A-Liaison to ISO. The DMSC invites participation within the consortium of other standards groups and activities that seek to resolve technological inefficiencies and other issues related to digital metrology.
For over 30 years Origin has helped manufacturers minimize process startup time and maximize yield and quality. Origin’s unique technology for constructing, editing and processing nominal frameworks enables companies to program virtually any CMM (CMM Programming), extract measurements from STL results files of scanners (Point Cloud Metrology), and share nominal frameworks among scanners and CMMs. Origin’s unique simulation engine gives production engineers the tools they need to find optimal solutions and save a lot of time doing it (SoftFit Solver). Companies use SoftFit on processes ranging from machined casting and additive manufacturing setups to weldment fixture and multi-part stack-up tolerance optimization.
Capvidia provides True MBD (model-based definition).
Model-based definition (MBD) is leveraging the 3D CAD model to become the authoritative information source for a product’s lifecycle. This is done by including semantic as-built product manufacturing information (PMI) within the human- and machine-readable 3D CAD model, resulting in automation, faster time-to-market, and building a digital thread from as-designed to as-built.
Innovators in digital manufacturing have seen double-digital productivity gains (up to 20%) with the adoption of model-based workflows.
