Welcome to CMM Quarterly

We have a new look but it is the same magazine you have come to enjoy over the years. Changes in the internet and security have mandated a newer version of the templates we have been using. So feel free to explore the magazine. If you are new here the magazine was created, since 2007, to bring you the latest CMM information including what's new, training in specific softwares, special editions, etc… Check the About Us section under the Home menu to find out more about us.

Please let us know if we can do anything better.

Category: About US

CMM Quarterly has always been about two things

#1

Provide a site in a magazine format to bring useful information to the CMM programmer and operator. We want to bring information that is useful and not just OEM sales information but articles that "lift the hood" so you can see how your CMM software looks and behaves. We want to bring methodology and understanding of how and when to use that methodology. 

I do not sell advertising on this site; however, you will see Mark Boucher Consulting banners on the site. This is a CMM Quarterly company and those leads from the banners make this magazine possible. 

#2

It has always been my belief that helping others, even when they are "competition" for the same contracting dollars, is key to success of both my business and my personal life. I've been in this business 35+ years and want to help those who are younger and eventually going to be taking my place. This magazine provides a place for that. As you begin to read their articles and glean from them please visit their web sites and at least acknowledge them for their contributions.

We have always been a free subscription and no author is paid. I do allow each author to submit a advertising banner with each article to promote their business.

 

I have included a Donate button on this page only. If you feel like you have benefitted from the information here please consider donating.
