Model Based Product Definition

Model Based Product Definition

Complex aerospace and defense industry products are produced using a global supply chain, with each company creating and consuming product data in a variety of formats. The resulting lack of interoperability hinders collaboration and reuse, which in turn impacts the ability to deliver on cost and schedule. Our model-based product definition solution enables the production of a complete digital product definition within a 3D model that functions as a single source of truth for all applications.

Given the number of companies involved in aerospace and defense programs (OEMs and many tiers of suppliers), the multidisciplinary nature of the projects (requiring mechanical, electrical and software design), and the need for efficient information exchange, it is essential that companies working with different CAD formats are able to collaborate and reuse information throughout all phases of product development, including sustainment. To achieve this, and for improved clarity and usability, companies are investing in model-based definition initiatives where PMI-annotated 3D models contain all the information needed to define a product, replacing traditional drawings. Using 3D annotated models as part of a Technical Data Package (TDP) enables the design engineer to formalize design intent using geometry, as well as annotations regarding specs, dimensions, tolerances and materials.

Our model based product definition solution provides a managed environment that reduces time required for data transfer, increases innovation through the ability to rapidly explore more design variations, increases reuse, and allows you to respond directly and immediately to market demands and customer-requested changes.
