MBD CAD Workflow
  • Publish any CAD file into neutral CAD file (QIF or STEP AP242).
  • MBD data for downstream use in manufacturing, quality, and supply chain.
  • PLM integration and measurement data harvesting-digital twin.
Digital Product Definition (DPD) Validation
  • Boeing D6-51991 supplier audit approval & other compliance standards including aerospace and auto.
  • Derivative model validation: confirm derivative models match the native source.
  • Obtain validation report that adheres to DPD compliance.
Bill of Characteristics & FAI Reporting
  • View Bill of Characteristics (BoC) for FAI and PPAP: auto assign balloon
    numbers, designate criticalities and track changes.
  • One-click automated inspection report to Excel and other forms.
  • MBD-based: automated and reliable.
CAD Revision Comparison
  • Compare different 3D-model-based revisions to detect intended & unintended changes.
  • Compare CAD geometry, GD&T, 3D annotations, assembly structure,
    notes, and more.
  • Reuse validated CAD model downstream for other workflows
MBD Pilot Project / Consultation
  • Industry leadership and guidance for initial MBD projects.
  • Delivering business case for MBD ROI through time and/or cost savings.
  • Latest in MBD education for training, process, and tools.
Measurement Uncertainty Simulation
  • Calculate task-specific measurement uncertainties for CMM measurements.
  • Identify potential issues before actual measurements are made and before product designs are finalized.
  • Identify gaps in the inspection process.
MBD CAD Translation
  • Export native CAD model to neutral format (QIF or STEP AP242).
  • Standalone or plug-in for Creo, SolidWorks, NX and CATIA.
  • First step of MBD/MBE journey.
