MBD is a Process, not a Product

In this episode we talk with Chad Jackson of Lifecyle Insights to clear up some misconceptions around model based definition (MBD) and model based enterprise (MBE).  The biggest thing to remember is that MBD and MBE isn’t a “thing” or a “product” – you can’t just say “let’s do MBD” or ask a services company “can you do MBD?”  It’s a process, and when done properly, companies can see tremendous benefits to productivity and the bottom line.

Beyond 3D Podcast with Chris Jones of Actify – Having a digital strategy for big data is critical, and both small and large manufacturers can do it.

Posted by Tyler Barnes on Dec 5, 2016 5:13:39 PM

In our third episode of Beyond 3D, we talk with Chris Jones, CEO of Actify, about why it is critical for manufacturers of all sizes to have a digital strategy to consume, visualize and act on the quintillions of bytes being generated every day. It’s not a question of “should I do this” but rather “when and how will I do this?” Relational databases just don’t cut it anymore – the massive amounts of data being generated need to be able to be mined for specific things, visualized and acted upon quickly and easily. The technology is getting there, and is more accessible to manufacturers of all sizes – yes, even the small guys.
