3D / MBD / MBE Continuing Education at CIC-2015
September 4th, 2015 by Jennifer Herron
Fall sparks memories of school days for me. Remember cracking open a new textbook, turning to a crisp page of your composition notebook, and advancing the lead in your mechanical pencil (OK, maybe it was your iPad)? You gazed in rapt anticipation to the front of the classroom as the professor launched into a course lecture and you were a sponge soaking up every morsel of information. Education is powerful.
Recharge your skill sets again this Fall: register to attend one or more of the many congresses, conferences, and exchanges that will kick your core knowledge of 3D/MBD/MBE up several notches.
While not a complete syllabus, here are some of the continuing education topics slated for discussion that intrigue me:
3D Collaboration and Interoperability Congress
Washington DC (Dulles)
Applying Science to MBD/MBE and the Digital Thread
NIST will present its latest findings at the CIC in Washington DC on October 29, 2015.
How do engineers design a mega-ton vessel like an aircraft carrier to stand up to the immense demands of the open seas while maintaining critical high-performance standards required by the hardware and software involved in the ship’s operation?
Learn how the Model-Based Environment delivers on these vital design and manufacturing process requirements from Ben Kassell of the Naval Sea Systems Command during his presentation at CIC.
What role does Quality Information Framework (QIF) play in resolving the incompatibilities in manufacturing quality digital information known to be costly and affect everyone involved? Learn about the significant breakthrough realized in the new Quality Information Framework (QIF) standard, approved by ANSI in October 2014.
Dimensional Metrology Standards Consortium (DMSC) board members Ray Admire and Curtis Brown will showcase the new ANSI QIF 2.0 standard at the Collaboration and Interoperability Congress (CIC) in Washington, DC on October 29, 2015.
See if any of this rings true: if you had devoted more time at the front end of a project, getting it set up correctly – you might actually have saved time/money over the life or the project? The same is true when working in the Model Based Definition (MBD) environment – get it right at the front end and you won’t regret the time spent.
Join Norm Crawford of Crawford Dimensional Management in a discussion at CIC in Washington DC on October 29th on how to avoid classic MBD implementation mistakes.
Application Protocols (AP) are still in the forefront in the world of 3D modeling. The National Institute for Standards & Technology (NIST) has funded a project to take a closer look at using AP 242 or Managed Model Based 3D Engineering to facilitate product inspection & manufacturing efficiencies.
Learn about more about AP 242 from Phil Rosche of ICF International at CIC on October 29th in Washington DC.
Where does your business stand when it comes to Model Based Enterprise (MBE) capabilities? Knowing your capability level is critical when planning next steps. The MBE Capability Index provides a critical self-assessment tool which could lead to maximized integrated manufacturing deliverables.
Educate yourself on the MBE Capability Index by attending Rich Eckenrode’s session (RECON Services) at the Collaboration and Interoperability Congress (CIC) in Washington, DC on October 29, 2015.
Investing in continuing education not only improves your personal performance but also your business deliverables. Let’s learn together – see you at CIC!
