No, I’m not talking about Steakholders but Stakeholders for realizing Model Based Definition & Model Based Enterprise. Let me begin by defining MBD and MBE.
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
Model Based Enterprise (MBE) 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.
The following are the 4 key stakeholders for MBD and MBE initiative
- MBE Project team
- Management Team/Sponsors/Customers
- Design Engineering/Upstream Teams
- Downstream Teams
