eTradeWire News/10464884
This educational webinar will look at what standards exist and what needs to mature to support a model-based enterprise strategy.

ANN ARBOR, Mich. - March 13, 2018 - eTradeWire -- CIMdata, Inc., the leading global PLM strategic management consulting and research firm, announces an upcoming free educational webinar, "Model-Based Enterprise & Standards." The webinar will take place on Thursday, April 12, 2018 at 11:00 a.m. (EDT) and will last for one hour.

Many companies are adopting Model-Based Enterprise (MBE) as a fundamental business practice. In doing so, these companies enter some uncharted waters concerning how to create a model that can become the base for their product lifecycle processes. For hundreds of years we have relied on drawings and associated documents to be the basis of product realization. With MBE, companies need guidance on how to move from what has been a well-established drawing-based enterprise practice into one that is model-based. A primary problem is that standards for many aspects of MBE are non-existent or immature. This webinar will take a look at what standards do exist for MBE and what still needs to mature.

John MacKrell, CIMdata's Chairman and the host for this webinar, stated, "Companies CIMdata has been working with are being challenged to adopt a model-based enterprise strategy. The current state of the art is that not only are people challenged to explain what an MBE is, but what is necessary to implement a workable solution in their organization. Standards are critical to support communication in a model-based environment."

Mr. MacKrell has over 40 years of experience in the application of computer-based solutions to engineering and manufacturing, with more than 20 years at CIMdata. He has held senior positions in product management, marketing, research and development, and consulting.

This webinar will be of interest to people from many parts of an organization including; managers, MBE planners, product engineers, manufacturing planners, maintenance and repair practitioners, IT professionals, purchasing, and anyone impacted by how an organization defines, uses, and communicates the designs of its products.

During the webinar attendees will have the opportunity to ask questions about the topics discussed. To find out more, visit:
