The QIF Standard is best thought of as a container. It holds a group of data together, providing unique identifiers for each feature and characteristic. This makes moving the data from team to team within an organization and into the supply chain much easier, as all the relevant data is present in one location, and the characteristics can be properly identified and communicated between people and machines by using the QPId (QIF Persistent Identifier) numbers to remove ambiguity. This allows a clean workflow of information downstream, while connecting all components of the digital thread. The enterprise gains trace-ability and transparency into their own workflow through versioning with QPId's.

It is all too common in the industry: a part design is created and sent out for production only to hit repeated snags as questions arise about symbols or values. Even simple misunderstandings, such as where the Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing (GD&T) lines terminate, have resulted in serious delays (in some cases, of more than a month) and non-conformance issues, which resulted in wasted products.

Modeling a Variation Analysis CAD Model creates a digital twin of your product. This virtual prototype behaves like your product, and can be used to simulate different builds of your product; essentially creating a digital assembly line and seeing all of the products made and how much variation each product has.
