The goal of the MBE Summit is to identify challenges, research, implementation issues, and lessons learned in design, manufacturing, quality assurance, and sustainment of products and processes 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 MBE Summit 2020 is Increasing MBE Adoption and Implementation. There is no doubt that MBE requires a complex organizational work design that recognizes the interaction between people, skills, and technology in workplaces. The 11th MBE Summit is focused on highlighting the organizational culture surrounding MBE, needs of people operating in MBE, and real-world implementations of MBE in practice.
Academia, government, and industry practitioners are encouraged to submit papers on topics related to this year’s theme using the following tracks: 1) Business Processes; 2) Organization Culture; 3) Technology; and 4) Workforce Skills. Submissions may align to any of the manufacturing-related domains; for example, Systems Engineering and Lifecycle Management; Design; Production and Fabrication; Quality and Inspection; and Operations, Logistics, and Sustainment.
