Rosemary Astheimer

Mechanical Engineer , NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology)

Rosemary Astheimer is a Mechanical Engineer in the Smart Connected Manufacturing Systems group at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). She works closely with industry and standards consortiums to improve the exchange of digital product data exchange using a Model-Based Definition (MBD) focusing on ISO 10303 standards that store and exchange computer-interpretable representation of product manufacturing information. She participates in the CAx Interoperability Forum, developing models to tests implementations of the standard across CAD platforms. Rosemary is also a member and sits on the Board of the Digital Metrology Standards Consortium, which established the Quality Information Framework (ISO 23952:2020) Before joining NIST, Rosemary was an applications engineer at VISTAGY, Inc., assisting automotive and aerospace customers in defining composite designs. She transitioned to Product Manager of Creo Data Exchange at PTC, where she began her focus on exchanging Product Manufacturing Information (PMI) through neutral formats such as STEP and JT. She then instructed at Purdue University for several years, sharing her CAD, MBD, PLM, and PDM knowledge with undergraduate and professional-level continuing education students. Rosemary holds a Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, and a Master in Software Engineering from Brandeis University.
