ZEISS iDA provides the metrologist withefficient tools for measurement planningand off-line programming in car bodyconstruction. Thanks to a large number ofautomated functions ZEISS iDA acceleratesthe conversion of measuring plans intomeasuring programs. These are relayed inthe standardized DMIS format to the appropriatemeasuring machines, regardlessof the manufacturer. The abbreviation iDAstands for Integrated DMISGen Application.iDA accommodates the measuringplan formats of all leading carmakers.
With ZEISS iDA, measurement planning and programming are performed using a complete 3D representation of the measuring machine, fixture and part. To simplify programming, the software uses standardized measuring principles which are, however, flexible thanks to parameterization.
The complete measuring run in simulated virtually and checked for possible collisions. The automated change management functionality of ZEISS iDA assists the metrologist in integrating changes to the measurement plans reliably and quickly in the corresponding measuring programs.
