MODEL BASED DESIGN: Why you want it. Why you hate it.


You want it because it seems like the direction all manufacturers are going. You want it because it seems that in our digital age, building hardware directly from an electronic file is the right thing to do. But you hate it because it is costing you money. It is overloading your overtaxed design engineers. CAD format translation errors are killing your production. Let’s talk about the MBD conundrum and figure out if it’s worth it. Does it save money? How can you implement it efficiently? What tools are missing? Come vent your pros and cons. We’ll do a trade study together and I will produce a report representing all attendees about the state of MBD and how we can take it to the next step.
