The concept of the Digital Thread begins by including all the information relevant to the design intent in the 3D CAD model. The traditional approach used by most companies encompasses the use 2D drawings created from the CAD model for both the manufacturing and inspection process, which is both costly and error prone. This talk will focus on implementing Model Based Definition (MBD) and the Quality Information Framework (Q.I.F.) technologies, that are changing the landscape of how companies move to solve these problems and close the loop between engineering, manufacturing and quality/inspection.
- Gain an understanding of key technologies that can improve their engineering – inspection – manufacturing workflow
- Learn the value Model Based Definition
- Gain an appreciation of the emerging DMSC Q.I.F standard and the advantages it brings to the manufacturing market
