Rethinking the skills engineers need in the Model-Based Enterprise Join Mark Morreale and Jennifer Herron MBE experts for a conversation about where today’s skill development should be focused—so that both experienced and up-and-coming engineers make the most of new ways to work together in an increasingly model-based world.
A Conversation with Jennifer Herron following the MBE Summit 2019 After the MBE Summit 2019 that took place at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) in Gaithersburg, Maryland on April 1-4, 2019, Jennifer Heron, CEO and founder of Action Engineering was interviewed regarding her thoughts on the state and impact of the Model-Based […]
Presentation Becoming a Model-Based Enterprise: Getting Users on Board United Launch Alliance’s transition to Teamcenter/NX and Model-Based Definition on the Vulcan Centaur rocket development program through a user’s eyes. Sarah Kelly will discuss the agile approach taken by United Launch Alliance and how Model-Based Definition has affected the development of their engineering in exciting and […]
Fred Constantino of ASME and Thad Henry of NASA will present at the 2017 3D Collaboration and Interoperability Congress. Mr. Constantino will begin with a brief overview of ASME Y14 Digital Product Definition standards (existing and soon to be published later in 2017). He will be followed by Thad Henry of NASA presenting about the use of […]
I recently co-authored “Towards Annotations and Product Definitions for Additive Manufacturing” with Dr. Paul Witherell and Dr. Gaurav Ameta. The title sounds official, as it should for a published paper, but perhaps, between you and me, we could give it a lighter name: All About That Communication. Cue Meghan Trainor. Forms of the word “communicate” appear 43 times in the paper! Yes, […]
Harvesting the Grains of an MBE Journey You’ll hear us use the word “journey” when we talk about Model-Based Enterprise (MBE). It’s a process that doesn’t happen overnight, and one that necessitates a shift in culture within the company. The MBE journey at Honey Bee Manufacturing Ltd. is one such example. Their MBE journey for […]
Government and commercial entities gathered at the MBE Summit in April 2016 to discuss the digital thread and Model-Based Engineering. This annual event is hosted by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) in Gaithersburg, Maryland. The purpose of the MBE Summit is to identify challenges, research, implementation issues, and lessons learned in manufacturing and quality assurance where […]
Creating a Model-Based Enterprise (MBE) with Model-Based Engineering (also MBE) is no small task. When executed well, there is clearly a tangible benefit for small and large companies as well as government organizations. By the way, there are at least three independent definitions for the three-letter-acronym (TLA) of MBE; here is my take on each […]
