Several years ago, the MBE Capability Index was developed and published to The Index established levels of capability (0 to 6) for becoming a Model Based Enterprise using Model Based Definition (MBD) or 3D annotated models. The intent of the index is to allow an organization to self-assess their MBE capability and to identify distinctive steps along the implementation journey. The index is designed to allow you to have different levels of capability for each of the functional areas. This will allow you to focus your efforts on the areas that matter most for your business. In 2015, NIST funded a revision of the MBE Capability Index to update it with current technology and process capabilities evident today. Learn the results of that update with this presentation.

The Collaboration and Interoperability Congress will focus on topics by real users of MBD or MBE with the theme of “Enabling the Model-Based Enterprise (MBE).” To learn more, please click here.
