In this episode of Beyond 3D, Jennifer Heron, CEO of Action Engineering, goes deep into what MBD (model-based definition) really means, and the steps a company can and should take if they want to get started implementing MBD. Jennifer highlights some real scenarios to illustrate cost, timeline and the process that a company can and should follow when looking to implement an MBD strategy.
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.
