Technical rule [CURRENT]
This part of DIN EN ISO/TS 15530 provides an overview of the DIN EN ISO/TS 15530 series. It discusses the metrological characteristics of coordinate measuring machines (CMMs), the sources of task-specific uncertainty, and the relationship between the DIN EN ISO 10360 and DIN EN ISO/TS standard series. This part of ISO 15530 is a general GPS document which influences chain link 6 of the chain of standards on size, distance, radius, angle, form, orientation, location, run-out and datums in the general GPS matrix. It is the purpose of the ISO 15530 series to provide terminology, techniques and guidelines for estimating task-specific measurement uncertainty when using coordinate measuring machines (CMMs). These techniques allow for the evaluation of sources of uncertainty that affect a stated measurement, including the influence of the coordinate measuring system, the sampling strategy, environmental effects, operator variability and any other factors affecting the actual measurement result. No draft has been published for the present DIN SPEC. This document has been prepared by Technical Committee ISO/TC 213/WG 10 "Coordinate measuring machines" with German collaboration. Regarding the German collaboration, Working Committee NA 152-03-02-12 UA "Koordinatenmesstechnik (GMA 3.31)" ("Coordinate measuring machines") at the Technical Fundamentals Standards Committee (NATG) is responsible.
