NAS 9300-007 - Conveys non-geometric attributes in 3D Computer Aided Design/Manufacturing/Inspection/Engineering (CAD/CAM/CAI/CAE) systems necessary for manufacturing product components or subsystems. PMI may include Geometric Dimensions & Tolerances (GD&T), 3D annotation (text) and dimensions, surface finish, and material specifications. CAx application literature may also refer to PMI synonymously with Geometric Dimensions and Tolerances (GD&T) or Functional Tolerancing and Annotation (FT&A).

QIF - non-geometric attributes in 3D Computer Aided Design/Manufacturing/Inspection/Engineering (CAD/CAM/CAI/CAE) systems necessary for manufacturing product components or subsystems

Note 1 to entry: PMI may include geometric dimensions & tolerances (GD&T), 3D annotation (text) and dimensions, surface finish, and material specifications.

MBE Maturity Index - The annotations in a 3D model that associate to one or more digital elements of a model, and are intended to support various lifecycle activities for the subject product.
