“Model-Based Enterprise” presented by SOLIDWORKS

JANUARY 30, 2020 TORONTO, ON 10:00 AM - 1:00 PM

According to Wikipedia, “Model-Based Enterprise” (MBE) is a term used in manufacturing, to describe a strategy where an annotated digital three-dimensional (3D) model of a product serves as the authoritative information source for all activities in that product’s lifecycle.”

In this seminar, you will learn about the origins of MBE, its evolution and the benefits it has on engineering, manufacturing, quality assurance, and other departments of a company.

SOLIDWORKS is Empowering Model-Based Enterprises (MBE)

The evolution of the Model-Based Enterprise has gone beyond the concept stage and is being implemented by many companies in the aerospace and automotive industries as well as others. The advantages of doing so are many, not the least of which is the time savings by the elimination of 2D drawings and the positive effect of improved collaboration among the many stakeholders involved in bringing a product to the market.

Go Drawingless—Implement a Model-Based Enterprise Strategy

Dramatically decrease development time and manufacturing costs by implementing a Model-Based Enterprise (MBE) strategy. SOLIDWORKS MBD allows drawingless CAM, Inspection, and Cost Estimation.

Featured Solutions

SOLIDWORKS MBD (Model-Based Definition) 

SOLIDWORKS MBD defines PMI directly in 3D and avoiding the expensive, time-consuming, and risky 2D drawing detour. 3D PMI helps speed up communication, cut quoting time, and reduce errors thanks to its 3D data interrogation, interactivity, and rich Meta properties.

Companies embracing model-based definition methodologies report savings in multiple areas, including reductions in manufacturing errorsdecrease in scrap and rework costs, and lower procurement costs for purchased parts.


SOLIDWORKS CAM leverages the rich content in the 3D CAD model to speed up product development and reduce error prone, time consuming, repetitive manual steps in the current development process, like programming CNC machines. Knowledge Based Machining (KBM) is the foundation for streamlining the programming process, learning as you program which frees up your time to focus on the critical areas of the components.

SOLIDWORKS Inspection 

Company quality departments are tasked with carrying out the quality inspection process. This often involves the creation of documents such as drawings with balloon callouts, reports for use during inspection, or additional deliverables required with parts.

The manual creation of inspection documents will often take hours using Microsoft Excel and hand-written annotations.

SOLIDWORKS Inspection software automates the manual and tedious process by leveraging existing 2D legacy data such as SOLIDWORKS files, PDFs, and TIFFs. Or capture data using a digital measuring instrument.
