Model-Based Enterprise Summit 2017
The National Institute of Standards and Technology will again host the Model-Based Enterprise (MBE) Summit. The purpose of the MBE Summit is to identify challenges, research, implementation issues, and lessons learned in manufacturing and quality assurance where a digital three-dimensional (3D) model of the product serves as the authoritative information source for all activities in the product’s lifecycle.
The 2017 theme is “Normalizing the Model-Based Enterprise.” For the first time, the MBE Summit will host an executive session for CTO and VP-level attendees who are interested in learning about Model-Based Enterprise and the benefits MBE may bring to their companies.
The MBE Summit offers four technical tracks:
- Systems Engineering
Jennifer Herron of Action Engineering will give two presentations:
Evolve or Dissolve – Effective MBD/MBE Strategy and Benefits
Discovering your organization’s primary motivation and pain points are essential to effectively implement an MBD/MBE strategy. Action Engineering’s CEO will share the top areas for companies to focus in order to be successful in implementing Model-Based Definition (MBD) inside a Model-Based Enterprise (MBE). Learn answers to our most commonly asked questions like: What does a fully integrated digital enterprise look like? How can MBD enable smart manufacturing systems? How can multi-CAD global operations work with multi-CAD MBD? Why would I bother with MBD?
MBD Supplier Readiness
Your organization may be “all in” – but what about your suppliers? Are your suppliers willing to keep pace or lagging behind? Are you keeping them “in the loop”? The benefits of Model-Based Definition (MBD) for your organization cannot be fully realized until your suppliers are operating at your capability level. Data from ROI of MBD surveys conducted by Action Engineering and Lifecycle Insights will be shared in an effort to learn more from this critical group of MBD users.
The full agenda, presentation abstracts, and registration details are available on the MBE Summit 2017 website. Registration closes on March 27, 2017.
