Does anyone have a MBD overview presentation that I can show to management to explain the benefits of MBD? We are investigating using MBD and I need something brief that covers the key points. Thanks!
I'm not too familiar with it. But, I do remember people posting about SWW presentations. Here are some from SWW 2017:
SOLIDWORKS World 2017
I'm sure you can find more at SWW 2016, too.
Like Matt mentioned, the SWW presentation are the best place to start. Denise''s presentation as well as mine, are based on company approach and use.
I will put together a longer response to your request in the near future, but reduced chance for misinterpretation and better quality parts are on the top of the list.
Attached is my slides presented at SOLIDWORKS World 2016. It was an introduction.
Here is a detailed study on Proven MBD Value Metrics by Rockwell Collins, Geater Manufacturing and NIST.
Hope they help.
The benefits of MBD are all based on the use of a single 3D file through the whole manufacture process.
If you currently don't supply a STEP file to your suppliers from the quoting process on you will want to start. For MBD the standard is STEP 242. The STEP file is a derived file and isn't where your revision control should take place. Your SOLIDWORKS model (assembly) is your controlled document. This gives you just one file to worry about (benefit) through the whole design/manufacturer/build/tech pubs
List of benefits can include:
What does STEP 242 give you? (SOLIDWORKS MBD is helpful to have to help these processes)
I hope this is a bit of help.
Thanks for all the great feedback! That is very helpful information.
