It seems with every passing day, there is more and more interest in Model Based Definition (MBD) initiatives. Some companies are looking at it to satisfy contractual requirements especially in aerospace and defense. Some are looking at it as a means to become more efficient in engineering and simplify design management. Yet others are looking at it as a way to cut down on scrap and incorrectly ordered parts in the supply chain.

Regardless of why a company is considering a change to MBD, there are a big misnomer that an organization must take into account. This issue isn’t obvious at first. However, it can become major issues if not addressed.
