Milford, OH, January 11, 2017 – International TechneGroup Incorporated (ITI) announces a new webinar, “Secure Collaboration in the Model Based Enterprise” to be held on Wednesday, January 25th at 1pm. MBE methodologies are being rapidly adopted by industry and government. Exchanging data with the supply chain in an MBE environment requires significant changes in both content and processes.

Native CAD models are more comprehensive because they include product manufacturing information (PMI). Familiar standards based derivatives (STEP, JT, PDF) have evolved to also be more comprehensive. Because these models and derivatives are used directly for downstream operations, accuracy is critical.

Both native and derivative models are compiled into technical data packages (TDP’s) for exchange with suppliers and partners. The TDP is more comprehensive, which makes its intellectual property (IP) value far greater and requires stronger protection than the simple drawings previously exchanged with suppliers.

DEXcenter WebinarIn the webinar, ITI DEXcenter Product Manager John Gray will illustrate how to automate the following key functions for ensuring secure TDP file exchange within an MBE:

  • Evaluating MBE native models to ensure they can be used downstream
  • Generating and validating the many derivatives needed that include PMI
  • Communicating engineering change orders (ECO’s) in MBD models
  • Collecting all files into a TDP and delivering securely
  • Ensuring IP protection and export control requirements are met

The 30 minute session will be held Wednesday, January 25th, at 1:00 p.m., Eastern. Register for the free webinar by clicking the link below. Space is limited.
