Overview
 Why MBD ?
 Risk
 Benefits
 Future of MBD-”Smart Models”
 Quality Information Framework-QIF
 Summary and conclusion
 Questions\Comments
Why model based definition ?
 Move away from 2-D paper drawings
 Smart 3-D Models
PMI
 GD&T

 Aerospace, military, automotive
 NIST developing QIF with DMSC,
manufactures and software vendors
Risks to MBD implementation
 Culture of organization

Documentation
 FAA rules and regulations

Advisory circular No: 21-48
- Used to describe electronic modeling
system
- If used must be in its entirety
 Adequate replacement for 2-D paper
prints
Concerns when developing an MBD
environment
 Data accessibility
 Data content
 Data presentation to standards
 Data management
 Data security
 Data retention
Many benefits to MBD
 Viewed in a common platform

PDF viewer
 Keep cost down for OEM suppliers and
vendors
 Fully annotated model
 Defining a common methodology for
CAD techniques across internal and
external supply chain
Levels of annotation
 As model develops definition becomes
rich with data
 Will become the standard
 2-D paper prints no longer needed

Can be made for convenience during
transition
 Annotations to models added in steps
Level 1-minimal annotation
 Envelope dimensions (overall boundary
dimensions of the part)
 “Block” or profile tolerance as applied to
the entire part
 Material and finish
requirements
 Title block information
Level 2-partial annotation
 Envelope dimensions
 “Block” or profile tolerance
 Material and finish requirements
 Title block information
 Non-standard dimensions
 Site map
 Critical notes
Level 3-full annotation
 Envelope dimensions
 “Block” or profile tolerance
 Material and finish requirements
 Title block information
 Full dimensions
 Site map
 Full notes
 Auxiliary views
MBD working environment
 Large amount of engineering knowledge
captured in model
 Complete annotated model avoids
ambiguities
 Reverse engineering of legacy products
 Manufacturing\Inspection programming
saving will show significant benefits
Smart models
 All inclusive data set of product
 Programming speed increased
 Interoperability standards being
developed
 Associativity of all entities
Quality Information Framework-QIF
 DMSC & NIST helping to develop
standard
 Holistic and integrated set of information
models
 QIF development of standards
Quality Measurement Plans-QMPlans
 Quality Measurement Rules-QMRules
 Quality Measurement Results-QMResults

QIF development
 Ensure interoperability
 Any information for manufacture or
inspection
 Semantic connections
 Provide a platform that is easy for
everyone to access and understand
Summary
 Many transitioning to MBD
 Collaboration between operations,
engineering, and supply chain
 Reduces labor costs, quality losses
 Enterprise agility
 Lower product costs
 Culture changes top down
 Model is final normative of part definition
Conclusion
 Best practices developed and followed
 All in supply chain need to be on board
 Communication of intent is vital
No surprises
 Every effort to help all involved

 Correct path for future business
 Reliable and accessible data for supply
chain
