    NIST Summit Takeaway 3 of 3 -- The Elephant in the MBE/MBD Room: Training

    Posted on Tue, May 29, 2018

    Our final takeaway is a theme that emerged early in the event: the training gap.

    In the Q&A after one of the Day One presentations, an attendee asked “how are we going to be able to implement model-based enterprise when our people need to be re-skilled, new hires are lacking key skills and there aren’t nearly enough qualified people to do the teaching?

    In the drawing-based workflows that have predominated for years, designers were not expected to devote much attention to inspection. That ch

     anges in the model-based enterprise. Designers are involved with marking up GD&T on CAD.

    Hadi Jafari of GE Baker Hughes shared his experiences implementing model-based enterprise and the surprises he encountered along the way.

    In Jafari’s experience, model-based design (MBD) is a tool that can be confused

    with the goal. The goal is to reduce lead time and costs in the design-manufacturing cycle. MBD is simply tools and processes to achieve this goal.

    Working out the ROI is tricky when costs and benefits cut across organizational lines. That is, between the OEM and its supply chain partners. When costs and benefits are shared unequally, this adds to the challenge of introducing model-based enterprise.
