ANN ARBOR, Mich. - Jan. 18, 2022 - PRLog -- CIMdata, Inc., the leading global PLM strategic management consulting and research firm, announces an upcoming free educational webinar, "Building a Consensus Agreement on an A&D Model-Based Design (MBD) Minimum Position." The webinar will occur on Thursday, 10 February 2022, at 11:00 a.m. (EST) and last for one hour.

The aerospace & defense (A&D) industry is moving towards a product design environment based on 3D Model-Based Definition for product description. This webinar will consider:
  • How CIMdata facilitated the A&D PLM Action Group's project to agree upon the Minimum MBD for Type Design Certification.
  • The results of the agreement.
  • The project management efforts needed to gain that agreement.
  • The ongoing research to expand A&D requirements in MBD.
  • How these topics can help other industries gain a similar consensus.

Attendees at this webinar will:
  • Gain an understanding of the MBD constructs needed by the A&D industry and how they may apply to their products.
  • Learn about the approaches CIMdata used to gain consensus and those approaches that did not work.
  • Learn what the A&D industry believes is not yet covered by current MBD definitions and how that may impact your own company's product designs.

According to Dr. Ken Versprille, an Executive Consultant at CIMdata, and the host for this webinar, "For any industry's major competitors to come together to identify objectives, requirements, and plans for the remediation of their common PLM pain points is a milestone in history. Helping to guide those efforts has been a challenge and provides a how-to lesson for other industries who look for similar success."

Dr. Versprille has over 40 years of experience applying computer-based solutions for engineering and manufacturing. His research spans geometric design, design collaboration and automation, PLM standards and openness, and CAD integration across PLM applications. Dr. Versprille published the first description of NURBS, the mathematical curve-and-surface formulation, now an international standard in CAD and Computer Graphics. In 2005 he received a Lifetime Achievement Award from The CAD Society.

During the webinar, attendees will have the opportunity to ask questions about the topics discussed.
