Times are changing for Model-Based Enterprise (MBE) initiatives. More executives are recognizing the value in using a Model-Based Definition (MBD) instead of a 2D Drawing. However, identifying the best way to switch is not easy. Each functional department uses design documentation in different ways. Depending on which department transitions first, the plan for adoption will vary dramatically. But just as importantly, how an organization deploys such an initiative matters greatly. Organizations must start small, allowing engineering to make the transition, and then enabling one functional department to start receiving that deliverable. From there, it builds synergistic value with each expansion.
