Why A Model Based Design Approach Really Is An Advantage

Paul Brown, Senior Director of Product Engineering Software of Siemens Digital Industries Software, and Allan Behrens of Taxal sit down to continue their discussion of a Model Based Enterprise.

In a model based design enterprise the upstream process is just as important as what happens downstream. How is information being fed into the model to make and take the right product to market?

In the beginning of any model based process, users look at the requirements and specifications that will control the definition of the final product. However, many times users looking into implementing a model based process become overwhelmed with jargon and acronyms.

To bring the conversation to a practical level, anyone that desires to develop a product: right from the outset has some sort of goals. How to put those goals into a systematic approach that meets requirements and specifications spanning the entire lifecycle of the product is how a model based approach develops.  

Inevitably, change happens as products evolve. A model based enterprise approach enables those changes to be fully recognized and accepted throughout the entire product development process without the need to reconcile multiple sets of design and manufacturing data.

One thing is clear, as complexity becomes commonplace in product development, businesses must have a way to co-develop effectively, in order to survive and thrive throughout and organization, across domains. A model based enterprise allows for the free flow of a single source of data for all involved in development to access at any time.

However, technology alone will not solve this problem, as with any solution it must embraced by all parties involved.
