Leveraging a Model-Based Definition to Build a Digital Thread

Modern product development relies on a foundation of digitalization. An entire company contributes to the digital thread, each department building, enhancing and adding value to the work of others.

For many years, the single source of data for design depended on engineering drawings.

The advent of 3D models offered an opportunity for companies to replace manual drawings with something called 3D Model-Based Definitions (MBD) in areas like:

  • The Bidding process
  • Tooling Design
  • Machining
  • Defining Instructions
  • Quality & Inspection

This eBook provides a tour of how companies can use an MBD throughout your organization to build a strong Digital Thread and improve overall productivity and throughput.
