MBD Connected Quality Enabling Automated MBE Quality Compliance


MBD Connected Quality Enabling Automated MBE Quality Compliance

MBD-enabled and MBE-connected quality management and compliance using the power of the QIF and software automation.

Model-Based Definition enabled an innovative approach for the Product Design Engineer to communicate and collaborate with manufacturing using a digital technical data package. However, MBD has more potential than TDP communication and collaboration but can also be applied towards product and part quality through the digital thread connectivity as the product design data and requirements are fully defined in the CAD model and can be leveraged to drive product quality and compliance. This session will present how Cisco is enabling digital product quality inspection and management using the power of the MBD CAD model and the Quality Information Framework standard, creating an end-to-end digital quality platform.
