The goal of the 2018 MBE Summit was to identify challenges, research, implementation issues, and lessons learned in manufacturing and quality assurance where a digital three-dimensional (3D) model of the product serves as the authoritative information source for all activities in a product's lifecycle. The theme of the 2018 Summit was Empowering the Digital Transformation with an Integrated Lifecycle. The model-based community has moved beyond the question of “why is MBE important” to “how do we deploy MBE?” This Summit (the ninth of the series) focused on empowering the industrial shift to MBE with recommend practices and how-to guidance.
The 2018 MBE Summit featured three technical tracks:
- Systems Engineering and Lifecycle Management
- Design & Recommended Practices
- Manufacturing & Quality
