This class requires an NDA. The philosophy of model-based enterprise (MBE) is quickly proliferating the manufacturing industry. With its origins in the U.S. Department of Defense, this philosophy is now strongly rooted in many organizations and defense establishments, and backed by industry standards. The significant process and productivity gains that have resulted from moving to a drawingless/paperless manufacturing environment by making a 3D model the “single source of truth” has motivated many companies to invest in this culture shift. In this session you'll learn how Inventor software will help its customers make this shift. You'll hear from industry experts on what it takes to make this shift, and you’ll discover the benefits, based on their vast experiences in this space.
