Foundational Supply Chain MBD Capabilities

To realize the benefits of Industry 4.0, the Digital Twin, and Model-Based Enterprise (MBE) in the supply chain, foundational Model-Based Definition (MBD) capabilities are required. MBD adds machine-readable Product Manufacturing Information to 3D CAD models to create a “complete” product definition. MBD reduces variability during data translation, provides more accurate product definition information and enables wider and faster dissemination.

In this IMTS Spark session, we connect with Jennifer Herron, founder and owner of Action Engineering, an organization with more than 12 years of experience helping large and small companies achieve the benefits of MBD. Jennifer will explain how MBD has enabled improvements of 80 percent in one area alone while exploring three major topics:

  1. Product Definition (PD) requirements captured in 3D datasets.
  2. Tracing, automating, and feeding-back digital engineering changes between the Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) and the supply chain.
  3. Tracing, automating, and feeding-back inspection data that certifies that the end-item is built as specified.
