This is PTC's comprehensive computer-aided design (CAD) software used for creating and managing the 3D models that serve as the foundation for MBE.
MBE is revolutionizing traditional manufacturing practices by leveraging 3D models to convey information throughout the product lifecycle. Engineers and designers can easily learn Creo’s fundamental tools to get started on their model-based definition (MBD) and MBE journey. Creo even has additional tools to help ensure compliance with new ASME and ISO standards, including geometric dimensioning and tolerancing (GD&T).
Explore Creo's capabilities and experience the benefits of MBD and MBE.
Model-based enterprise (MBE) transforms and enhances traditional manufacturing and engineering practices by adopting a digital and model-centric approach throughout the product lifecycle. MBE aims to replace or supplement conventional 2D drawings and documents with 3D CAD models that contain all relevant product information using model-based definition (MBD), including geometric data, annotations, tolerances, material properties, manufacturing instructions, and more.
MBD is a specific aspect of MBE, which is a broader initiative that aims to transform the entire enterprise by leveraging digital models throughout the product development and manufacturing lifecycle. While MBD focuses on the use of 3D models for design and manufacturing information, MBE extends to all aspects of the organization, promoting collaboration and data integration across different departments and functions.
MBD is a specific application of models in the context of 3D design and manufacturing, while model-based systems engineering (MBSE) is a broader methodology that focuses on using models to represent and manage complex systems across various engineering disciplines. Both MBD and MBSE aim to improve collaboration, efficiency, and quality in the product development process, but their scopes and applications differ significantly.
