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.Read More
