MBD Enables Easy Simulation of Product Performance

Session Description

Utilizing a Model-Based Definition, or MBD, of the part requirements creates the opportunity for companies to increase productivity and decrease time to market by reducing the cycle time of many activities in both design and manufacturing phases. For example, digital information can often automatically feed into the manufacturing and inspection equipment in lieu of manual transfer. Another area where many companies still rely on legacy methods is in tolerance analyses – many engineers still use spreadsheets. This area of engineering analysis can also become far more efficient by utilizing software tools specifically designed to understand and update requirements defined within the models. Instead of manually transferring data back and forth all work can occur within the CREO environment where updates are made to the model definitions in real-time. This session will cover how design teams working with manufacturing representatives can efficiently create complete and unambiguous product specifications within the CAD model that result in the lowest-cost products possible.
