While it’s been around since the 1990s, model-based definition (MBD), a technique for semantically documenting the information necessary to manufacture and inspect parts and assemblies produced via 3D computer-aided design (CAD), still isn’t in widespread use, says Dave Martin, former senior learning consultant at software company PTC. Currently, many engineering companies are still passing deliverables to manufacturers in the form of 2D drawings accompanied by written product manufacturing information (PMI) pertaining to dimensions, geometric tolerances, and other important parameters. Manufacturers are then required to manually transcribe this information into their own software.
