From 10 hours to 10 minutes: A MBD Approach to PPAP
Do PPAPs cost you significant time? Learn a digital thread technique to save up to 80% of your quality planner’s time, even if you receive an engineering change.
• Creo MBD
• QIF in action
• Digital Bill of Characteristics
• Automatic updates when engineering is revised
Model-Based Definition (MBD) is 3D CAD data that is digitally authored to be used automatically by manufacturing and quality engineers and planners to speed up fabrication and inspection. Jennifer Herron, CEO of Action Engineering, the leading consulting firm for enabling MBD transformations, and Daniel Campbell, VP of MBD at Capvidia will present a practical and real-world technique using Capvidia’s software suite. Jennifer will show a real part authored in native CAD and published as QIF data to perform the dimensional element of a PPAP, including what happens when engineering revises the MBD. The combination of the QIF data and PPAP processes creates digitally traceable characteristics while processing an engineering change. Both companies are dedicated to making workers faster and more accurate by empowering them, not replacing them.
