How Supply Chain Can Drive MBE by Benny Yap

Benny Yap of Cisco Systems will present at the 2017 3D Collaboration and Interoperability Congress. 3D CIC and the Quality Information Framework Symposium will be held in Golden, Colorado on October 3-5, 2017.


How Supply Chain Can Drive MBE

  • Many product design validation processes require interaction and data from the Supply Chain ecosystem, such as Design for Manufacturing, Assembly, Cost, and Variation Management.

  • Supply Chain is well positioned to provide insights on the MBE value chain as well as execute upon the MBE requirements, being both a consumer and customer of Engineering’s output and Technical Data Packages.

  • The reciprocation of Engineering’s consumption of Supply Chain’s data on manufacturing capability allows Supply Chain to affect the product design and requirements.

  • This presentation will take you through the journey of how Supply Chain was able to recognize the MBE potential, gather constituents, develop the strategy, and drive the initiative for the corporation.
