THE BENEFITS OF MODEL-BASED DEFINITION INITIATIVES

Manufacturers rely on design documentation to successfully drive the entire development process. Design documentation acts as the definition that guides all activities, including manufacturing, procurement, quality, and service, so it is no surprise that companies continue to invest in improving their documentation practices. 

One innovation that is gaining momentum in the field is the use of an MBD. This eBook is a primer for the changes needed to pave the way for an MBD initiative, detailing the creation and consumption of an MBD as well as highlighting the benefits manufacturers can realize from it.
