Terminology Trap: The Model Based Enterprise

Terminology. Terminology. Terminology.

One of the base challenges that this industry faces is terminology. This space, software supporting engineering and development, is literally overrun with existing technology and concepts of how to use them. So when a software provider comes up with something new, something they don’t want the industry to see as merely an enhancement but a new-to-the-world offering, they put a new term on it and announce it with great fanfare. Or, as can often be the case, an existing ‘hot’ term is coopted to means something else. Ultimately, it can all be pretty confusing.

Now, let’s talk about Model-Based initiatives. Right now, they’re pretty popular. But is everyone talking about the same thing? Well… no really. You see, Model-Based can mean dramatically different things. In this post, we’ll take a deeper look at those definitions and how they differ.

3D CAD Model Turbine

With MBD, MBE, AR and VR, the Role of 3D Models is Changing

There’s no doubt about it: we’re living in a time of change. Model Based Definition (MBD) and Model Based Enterprise (MBE) initiatives are gaining more and more traction. More manufacturers are seriously looking at Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR) as a means to improve activities throughout and beyond the development cycle. And believe it

Simulation Reconciliation, the Series

It took me a while, but I reached a conclusion. More simulation integration is needed. It’s needed in a bad way. You see, there are a ton of good simulation tools being put to use out there. Over the course of the last year, I’ve been digging and digging into them. Some are being used to

Simulation CFD Helicopter Pump


Last week, I shared some research and commentary on the current state of Simulation Driven Design as well as the potential solution going forward: Simulation Platforms. In a continuation of that post, I’m starting a series to look at different solutions in this space to understand what traits they have in common and which are
