Model Based Definition (MBD) provides significant advantages for the processes from design into manufacturing. It is more than working without drawings. It keeps all necessary information in one single place and provides the model as a hub for collaboration. Nevertheless, in early stages of the engineering process no geometry information is available. In these phases you can use a function based model for engineering and collaboration purposes in product definition. Today this two models are not linked together. In this presentation a way of bridging the gap is shown. You will see an integrated approach from a MBSE model of an individually specified conveyor over an automated model configurator to a specific conveyor design model. Tools are PTC Integrity Modeler, Creo, Windchill and some intelligent glue between them.
