Anthony Esposito

Leader, Product Development, Fixtures R&D , Lixil

For the entirety of my 15 year career, I have been designing and developing kitchen and bath products at Lixil, a Global Water Technology company. My passion for CAD design started in high school and has continued throughout my career. I graduated from New Jersey Institute of Technology with a degree in Mechanical Engineering and began my career as a CAD Drafter shortly after. I continued to learn and gain a deeper passion for CAD, holding various CAD design and manager roles within R&D over the past 15 years. In my current role, Leader of Product Development for the Ceramic product category, I am responsible for innovation, new product development and product lifecycle maintenance. I have a team with various Engineering backgrounds dedicated to improving user experience with each product through innovation. We work in a global organization, where collaboration and alignment across multiple regions allows us develop products which are introduced into markets all over the world.

CA1487B - Model-Based Product Development: Efficiency and Collaboration

Model-Based Product Development (MBPD) describes the process by which manufacturers’ 3D CAD models serve as the single source of truth for the full development cycle, from early concept development through manufacturing planning. MBPD eliminates the waste created when converting 3D models into 2D artifacts and helps manufacturers improve time to market, reduce cost of poor quality, and drive innovation. Join this session to hear how you can now easily define a single source of truth for design, manufacturing, quality, and your downstream supply chain. Hear directly from LIXIL, parent company of American Standard, about how they leverage 3D CAD models throughout their development process.
