How to Ensure a Measurable Return on Investment for Model-based Design

Return on InvestmentModel-based design (MBD), sometimes digital product definition, is the practice of using 3D models (such as solid models, 3D PMI and associated metadata) within 3D CAD software to define (provide specifications for) individual components and product assemblies. The types of information included are geometric dimensioning and tolerancing (GD&T), component level materials, assembly level bills of materials, engineering configurations, design intent, etc. By contrast, other methodologies have historically required accompanying use of 2D engineering drawings to provide such details.


Assuring a measurable return on investment requires a multi-year, multi-phased execution approach that transforms the organization in a logical stepwise fashion. This requires the creation of an MBD/MBE Strategy and a comprehensive understanding of where the ROI will come from as well as the critical process and application capabilities required to attain the ROI.


Evidentiary Data demonstrates a substantial ROI can be achieved through the application of Model-based Design Process and Application Infrastructures.
