2016 3D CIC Theme:
Commercial Applications of Model-Based Business Process
Join us on October 25 & 26, 2016 at Table Mountain Inn in Golden, Colorado for the 13th year of the 3D Collaboration & Interoperability Congress! Action Engineering is producing 3D CIC 2016 with the support of long-time 3D CIC lead, David Prawel, Longview Advisors. 3D CIC is the only vendor-neutral event addressing collaboration and interoperability in manufacturing and business communications. We pride ourselves on finding presenters who are real users discussing real problems and solutions for Model-Based Definition (MBD) and Model-Based Enterprise (MBE) applications.
3D CIC has become a yearly barometer of the state of collaboration and interoperability strategy, technology, and solutions across all sectors of discrete manufacturing. This year’s 3D CIC event is focused on extending the benefits from the aerospace and defense industries into the commercial sector with the theme: Commercial Applications of Model-Based Business Process. 3D CIC is highly pertinent to mechanical and systems engineers, program managers, and visionary leaders in the aerospace, defense, automotive, medical, industrial equipment, and other product development industries.
PTC & SolidWorks User Meetings
PTC/User Model-Based Enterprise Committee
The PTC/User Model-Based Enterprise (MBE) Committee consists of PTC customers who gather together periodically to share experiences and discuss the future possibilities of MBE as organizations are working to utilize CAD models throughout their business. This networking opportunity allows us to learn from each other regarding what does and does not work in the transition to MBE along with the impact of evolving industry and commercial standards.
The PTC/User MBE Committee will meet at Table Mountain Inn on Thursday, October 27, 2016 (full day) and Friday, October 28, 2016 (half day). Registration is free, compliments of sponsorships from Anark, CoreTechnologie, ITI, Punditas, and Sigmetrix.
Existing PTC/User MBE Committee members are invited to register now. Users of any PTC products who are not already members and interested in learning more are encouraged to email the committee chair, Margi Korch.
SolidWorks MBD/MBE User Group
SolidWorks users are encouraged to participate in a SolidWorks MBD/MBE User Group on Monday, October 24, 2016 at Table Mountain Inn, from 9:00 am to 4:30 pm, with a 1.5-hr break for lunch on your own. Registration is free, compliments of sponsorship by Anark.
