The objective outcome of this event is to expand awareness of the MBE transformation throughout the depot maintenance community of interest and to identify those focus areas that could benefit with tighter integration with DoD’s Advanced Manufacturing Enterprise (AME) subpanel as well as the newly formed Digital Manufacturing and Design Innovation Institute (DMDI).
Purpose: Model-Based Enterprise (MBE) is an integrated and collaborative environment, founded on 3D product definition shared across the enterprise, enabling rapid, seamless, and affordable deployment of products from concept to disposal. It represents a fundamental shift to 3D from 2D which is a major perturbation from the normal behavior. Several case studies have documented significant savings generated when implementing MBE. Toyota has shown a 50% reduction in costs. Boeing and BAE Systems have documented similar savings. Naval Air Warfare Center Aircraft Division (NAWCAD) Lakehurst has shown that it can eliminate a full 30% of the labor required for part fabrication. The purpose of the forum is to identify challenges, research, implementation issues, and lessons learned in manufacturing and quality assurance where a digital three-dimensional (3D) model of the product serves as the authoritative information source for all activities in the product’s lifecycle. The four areas that have direct impact on depot work are:
- Model Based Definition (MBD): MBD is the practice of using 3D digital data within CAD software to provide specifications for individual components and product assemblies as opposed to utilizing conventional 2D drawings. How this 3D data is created, formatted, and packaged for downstream use will be addressed.
- Verification/Validation of Model data: In MBE, the model data can be used not only for the purposes of manufacture, but also inspection of the parts themselves. The importance of model verification and validation and how it can be accomplished will be discussed.
- Model-Based Inspection: When using model data for the inspection of parts several challenges exist. These challenges as well as potential solutions will be presented.
- Model-Based Work Instructions: MBE can also be used to create process planning work instructions (with 3D animation). This makes it possible to use the MBD data as an input to work instructions (such as assembly, proof loading, welding, etc.) on the factory floor. This next logical extension to MBD as well as methods of implementation will be discussed.
