Modeling Standards for a Model Based Enterprise
Ryan Gelotte, CTO, Action Engineering, LLC
Model Based Definition (MBD) is a major topic today. Most people hear MBD and think it simply involves replacing a 2D drawing with a 3D model as the product definition source authority. But it's much more. While 2D drawings are the source authority for product definition for most, models are still widely used across the enterprise for many digital manufacturing and operations processes. Often times these models are not under formal change control and are not required to meet any regulatory requirements. This can result in costly inefficiencies and rework because the model was just good enough to release a drawing. This session covers many of the reasons why 3D CAD matters more today than ever, and why the time has come to define 3D modeling standards that are not just best practice documents but ones everyone can follow.
The Worst Assembly in the World
Pete Hollmer, Senior MCAD Applications Engineer II, Raytheon
In a comical approach to an all-too-common issue, the presenter will explore and employ a number of bad modeling practices in a never-ending effort to increase the retrieval time of his Creo Parametric master assembly. Through overuse of assembly cuts, level ten shrink wraps and other excessive modeling practices, attendees will see his retrieval time balloon out to thoroughly unusable levels. By the end of the presentation, you'll have either a list of ways to increase their own retrieval times, or perhaps more usefully, a list of bad practices to avoid.
Johnson & Johnson Enterprise PLM - OneMD Digital Transformation
Anjali Jain, Sr Manager IT, Johnson and Johnson
Learn how Johnson & Johnson (J&J) executed their OneMD Transformation journey to enable business process transformation, technical transformation, project team organization and agile delivery, as well as a release framework that helped them shift the PLM world from document-centric to process-centric. See how these changes helped reduce time-to-market and create a futuristic view and the path forward.
Stryker’s Transition to a Model Based Enterprise: Leading Practices for Strategy, Process, Data and People
Steven Maulick, Director of Engineering Services, Stryker and Howard Schimmoller, Technical Fellow, Kalypso
More and more companies are transforming into model-based enterprises (MBE), using tools and processes of digital product creation (DPC). These transformations are comprehensive, with implications to strategy, business processes, data and people. Stryker and Kalypso share technical guidance on leading practices for data creation and management as companies prepare for MBE and DPC, typical barriers and success factors for achieving business benefits, and specific organizational change recommendations.
