Measuring the PMI Modeling Capability in CAD Systems: Report 2 - Combined Test Case Validation

Published

Author(s)

Doug Cheney, Bryan Fischer

Abstract

A methodology for measuring the product and manufacturing information (PMI) modeling capability of computer-aided design (CAD) systems has been developed to measure technology readiness and track progress as functionality gaps are closed. A measurement methodology will enhance the ability of discrete part manufacturing companies to implement a model-based enterprise (MBE). The use of a clear capability assessment will accelerate MBE technology development by CAD software vendors. This can increase the business opportunities for both manufacturing companies and technology providers.
