ITI TranscenData will be exhibiting and presenting at the 2009 COE Aerospace-Defense Workshop in Ft. Worth, TX on October 26-27.

As the industry leader in product data interoperability solutions, ITI TranscenData has been selected to address the important topics of "Reducing Long-Term Archival Costs Through Automation", as well as the concept of "Predictive Interoperability for Manufacturing". Below you will find further details, as well as presentation times for those able to attend the conference.

“Reducing Long-Term Archival Costs Through Automation”, Monday, Oct 26, 4 – 5 pm
The business case for long-term archival often includes factors such as data loss, disaster recovery, risk management, MRO requirements, and program restarts or modifications. But what happens when your long term archival budget is slashed? In this session, attendees will learn how to build a 3D model-based archival and retrieval plan that leverages automated processes for model verification, conversion, repair, validation, PLM extraction, archival vaulting and data delivery. Special emphasis will be placed on strategies for archiving 3D FT&A (PMI) data.

“Predictive Interoperability for Manufacturing”, Tuesday, Oct 27, 1 – 2 pm
Often the differences between a “quality” model and a “usable” model are only discovered when the model reaches manufacturing and the engineers are forced to find workarounds. Model rework or rebuilding can cause divergence from the original design intent. This adhoc approach compromises the integrity of a model-based design strategy and causes product delays, non-value-added labor costs, and part scrap. In this session, attendees will learn how to interrogate and diagnose unusable geometry, document the findings, streamline geometry repair and improve upstream design processes before they create problems on the shop floor.

ITI TranscenData also has a third presentation selected as an alternate regarding “Lessons Learned While Migrating 2D and 3D Data into CATIA V5”. This presentation examines lessons learned while helping aerospace and defense companies implement legacy data conversions into CATIA V5. Topics include complex geometry, feature construction history, assembly structure, associative drawings, FD&T (PMI), validation and automation.
