Closed Loop Manufacturing: CAD Driven Supplier Quality and Continuous Quality Improvement

How Can You Drive Quality Improvement and Improve Supplier Quality with Model Based Definition?

Model Based Definition can be leveraged to drive supplier quality and create continuous quality improvement by connecting existing processes. 

CAD modeling and simulation is now a standard in many manufacturing businesses. These same manufacturers understand that measuring completed parts, and measuring incoming parts from suppliers, is an important part of validating quality. What Model Based Definition offers is the ability to use the completed CAD model and analysis to drive the entire quality process, creating a single source for specifications and quality information that, when applied throughout production, allows for manufacturing correlation and powerful problem solving to improve quality at every stage of the product lifecycle.
