New Frontiers in CAD Model Validation


In the last few years, geometry translation validation has been recognized by leading manufacturing companies as a key enabler for 3D model-based engineering (MBE) across a global extended enterprise.  Now these companies are discovering that CAD model validation must address a broader set of requirements, including product manufacturing information (PMI), parametric features, model attributes and collaboration data.  They are also applying this technology to critical MBE processes, such as legacy migration, long-term archival, supplier integration and certified data delivery.

ITI TranscenData was the first to market with a multi-CAD comparison technology and remains the leading provider of CAD validation solutions for Fortune 100 companies.  This presentation will summarize the early successes and current challenges on these new frontiers.
