As product development becomes increasingly complex and dynamic, it’s necessary for traditional engineering practices, processes, tools and mindsets to adapt and take advantage of new possibilities. Model-based definition (MBD) is now seen as a key method for tackling the challenges of constantly evolving product development, while also streamlining the overall design and production process.
By incorporating a 3D model and the associated data that fully defines a product, MBD can be used to effectively communicate all of the necessary information to all downstream customers, without the need for 2D drawings. By creating a collaborative environment that shares the validated and authorized MBD data across a business, a company can become a model-based enterprise (MBE).
In this 12-page eBook, you will learn:
The key business drivers for MBD/MBE
The challenges and risks for MBD/MBE
The business case for MBD
How to eliminate inaccuracies and reduce errors
How to reduce costs and improve product quality
