MODEL-BASED DEFINITION (mbd): why you need it

MBD Drives Clarity in a Complex World

Today’s business environment is complex, dynamic and intricately inter-dependent and hence challenges the limits of traditional approaches.

Product development is becoming ever-more complex and dynamic. Traditional engineering practices, processes, tools, and mindsets need to evolve not only to address this complexity but to capitalize on it.

What is MBD?

Model Based Definition is an emerging approach to engineering that holds great promise for addressing the increasing complexity of systems, while reducing the time, cost, and risk to develop and deliver these systems.
Model Based Definition (MBD) is about creating rich “Technical Data Packages (TDP)” which includes 3D model and associated data elements that fully define the product in a manner that can be communicated and used effectively by all downstream customers without the need for 2D drawings.

This TDP becomes the single source of truth that is exchanged with the downstream organizations such as quality, inspection, manufacturing, procurement and others to interrogate, analyze, build and inspect the product.
Model Based Enterprise (MBE) in contrast is a fully integrated and collaborative environment that shares the validated and authorized MBD data across the enterprise that enables the realization of products from concept through sustainment.
