Model based Enterprise (MBE) Readiness Assessmentv

Driving a measurable return on your MBE investments and assuring the best time and cost to value for mandates that you implement a core of MBD and PLM functionality to enable the full Digital Thread the Model-based Enterprise can provide. DSA Analysts are highly skilled to conduct an analysis of your current Roadmap to MBD/Digital Thread and assist you to identify and eliminate roadblocks to a successful high value-adding Model-based Enterprise.

MBE Pilot Readiness Assessment: 
1. Conduct a review of your Model-based Enterprise Strategy/Roadmap:
      - if you do not currently have a Model-based Enterprise Strategy/Roadmap, it is imperative that you derive one to ensure 
         your long term success (measurable ROI) as well as an optimized time and cost to value for MBD/MBE
2. Review progress to date to establish a Foundation of MBD Functionality including but not limited to:
      a. GD&T Strategy (Minimally Annotated, Fully Annotated, Optimally Annotated)
      b. Modeling Standards, PMI Standards, and internalization of these standards
            - Can you validate their practice
      c. Exploitation of Model/PMI Validation Tools & Techniques
      d. Exploitation of Producibility Tools & Techniques
      e. Exploitation of Publishing Tools
      f. Exploitation of Derivative Validation Tools & Techniques
3. Review progress to date to extend PLM Functionality to enable MBD:
      a. Extension of your Engineering Release capability and Lifecycle Policy to trigger automated validations which increase in
          sophistication as you evolve through each Product Release Lifecycle
            - Workflow Triggers, Dispatchers, Translators, Temporary File Managers, Action Handlers, etc.
      b. Exploitation of a Product Classification schema to enable automated selection of the right Model, PMI, amd Producibility
          checks which will naturally vary by Product Type
      c. Extension of the Part/Design Objects/Attribution
      d. Bills of Characteristics Management and automated exploitation
      e. Conversion of Systems Engineering and CAE Objects from Text to Data to enable automated extraction of data in to
          Technical Data Packages
4. Review MBE Pilot Plan, Scope, and Objectives and validate required application and process capability exist to enable pilot
      a. Review and validate Product Breadth targeted for Piloting to ensure comprehensive feedback in to the resulting MBE
          Strategy/Roadmap updates
            - Internally Sourced Part Targets; Small Complexity Part, Medium Complexity Part, Large Complexity Part
            - Externally Sourced Part Targets; Small Complexity Part, Medium Complexity Part, Large Complexity Part
      b. Derive minimum requirements and implementation plans for MBD functionality to enable the Pilot(s):
            - Do Model-based Definitions exist for Pilot Parts and are they comprehensive to enable a high first pass yield of the
              MBE processes in Pilot Scope
            - Can you produce a Technical Data Package (TDP)
            - Can you validate the Native Model, PMI, and Derivatives including the TDP
            - Can you release the validated MBE Artifacts
      c. Review and validate internal feedback loops are properly derived for each of the MBE processes in scope e.g., FAI
          Planning and execution, Tooling, Manufacturing Work Instructions, Manufacturing Process Planning, Design Feedback,
          Requisitioning and Proposal Management, etc. 
      d. Review Outsource Pilot Supplier selections, execution plans and feedback loops
            - What Supplier Preparation Work is required
            - What Supplier Training is required
            - What are the support requirements through the Outsource Piloting activity
                + Will you Produce FAI Report Template(s)
                + Will you jointly derive FAI Plan and FAI correlation process
                + What cadence of execution reviews are required
                + Etc.
