MBD (Model-based Definition): Benefits for Design, Manufacturing, and Metrology

In this presentation, we will redefine what is true MBD, show why it important, and demonstrate real-world implementation and benefits from design to manufacturing to metrology.
True MBD starts with 3D CAD with PMI (product manufacturing information) that drives GD&T, general notes, BoM, engineering change orders, and other 3D annotations. This becomes the single source of truth (interoperability & traceability) for all downstream applications, enabling companies to pursue automation, Big Data, AI and other insights, because quality data moves beyond pass/fail and is mapped back to the model for improved product, process, and business decisions. In the short run, there are plenty of low-hanging fruit that MBD practice can save time and costs immediately such as creating automatic FAI, PPAP or inspection reports; automatic data import to CMM or CAM.
We will also address impediments to MBD ranging from fear, ignorance, data silos, and the always popular, "It’s always been done this way." Unfortunately, ignorance is not bliss as we are reminded repetitively of once great industry giants (Kodak, Blockbuster, Blackberry, Yahoo, etc.) that chose not to innovate.

HPC Licensing Update

Ansys continues to improve the value of HPC licensing and add new capabilities to allow scalability to whatever computational level of simulation is required, from single-user or small user group options that enable entry-level parallel processing up to virtually unlimited parallel capacity.
Learn about the new HPC-based parametric licensing and get a detailed overview of all HPC licensing options, along with many examples.

Wim is director of HPC and cloud alliances at Ansys. In his role, he is also responsible for the overall design and execution of the global HPC and cloud alliance partner program within Corporate Development and Global Partnerships at Ansys. Wim has 26 years of experience in the business of engineering simulation software with management positions in software development, consulting, sales, and product management. Wim holds a PhD degree in Aerospace Engineering from the Technical University of Delft in the Netherlands.

How to Integrate Cloud Based IoT/CPS to Simulation and Testing Processes using ISO-10303 and Digital Twin Based Crane Monitoring

This presentation will introduce the ISO 10303 STEP standard with a focus on how users can connect IIoT/CPS solutions and its sensor data directly to CAD, CAE and PLM/SDM models, ensuring performant data exchange, sharing and archiving processes. Several examples will be highlighted, like the Mountain Bike, the Crane of the Gunnerus research vessel and more. The IIoT/CPS Implementation is based on the open source software "Arrowhead Framework”, now also available in the Eclipse environment.

Prof. Terje Rølvåg holds a M.Sc. and a Ph.D. within finite element dynamics of elastic mechanisms and control from NTH. His publications are mainly within non-linear finite element dynamics and active damping of elastic mechanisms. He has been central in developing FEDEM, a finite element based modelling and simulation tool with multidisciplinary capabilities (see He has also established several engineering companies and optimized products for the automotive, offshore and aerospace industries. Prof. Rølvåg's research interests cover computer science applied for engineering applications focusing on simulation of behaviour and strength of electromechanical products.
