Geometrical product specifications (GPS) - Matrix model (ISO 14638:2015); German version EN ISO 14638:2015
Geometrische Produktspezifikation (GPS) - Matrix-Modell (ISO 14638:2015); Deutsche Fassung EN ISO 14638:2015
This standard is a fundamental ISO GPS standard. This document (ISO 14638) explains the concept of Geometrical Product Specification (ISO GPS), and provides a framework to illustrate how current and future ISO GPS standards address the requirements of the ISO GPS system. The framework is intended to be of use to users of ISO GPS standards, by illustrating the extent of the scope of the different standards, and showing how they relate to each other. The framework is also used for structuring the development of standards for GPS by Technical Committee ISO/TC 213. ISO GPS is a system which is used to describe certain workpiece characteristics through some of the different stages of its life cycle (design, manufacture, inspection, etcetera). This document has been prepared by Technical Committee ISO/TC 213/WG 17 "Facilitation of GPS implementation", in collaboration with Technical Committee CEN/TC 290 "Dimensional and geometrical product specifications and verification", the secretariat of which is held by AFNOR (France). On the national level, Working Committee NA 152-03-02 AA "CEN/ISO Geometrische Produktspezifikation und -prüfung" ("CEN/ISO Dimensional and geometrical product specification and verification") at the Standards Committee Technical Fundamentals (NATG) at DIN.
