SOLIDWORKS is turning the spotlight on manufacturing. This year’s event will feature, for the first time, a 40 x 70 ft. “Shop Floor” booth, recreating a typical manufacturing environment for the production and inspection of an automotive gear shift arm. Parts will be manufactured and inspected from part designs produced in SOLIDWORKS 2018 complete with embedded Model Based Definition (MBD).

前回のモデルベース定義(MBD)導入に関する注意点(進捗を評価する)では,NIST の開発した MBD 能力評価について触れました。レベル 0 とレベル 1 の決定的な違いは,図面中心型かモデル中心型かという点だったと思います。今回はこれをもう少し掘り下げ,2 次元図面を設計の原本とするのをやめた方がよい理由を説明します。 表 1: MBD 導入における 10 の注意点 まずお聞きします。

SOLIDWORKS MBDは,生産作業の合理化を図るための製造工程統合ソリューションです。PMI(Product Manufacturing Information:製品製造情報)と3Dモデルデータを業界標準のファイル形式で定義,編成,共有できます。 (アノテート機能) 各3Dビューには,製造上重要な情報がわかりやすく表示されます。また,アノテートをすべて表示する機能や,表示平面に合わせてアノテートを自動的にフェードするダイナミックなアノテート機能もあります。

モデルベース定義(MBD)は設計部門から始まるのが普通ですが,価値を十分に実現するためには,製造,検査,購買,サプライチェーンといった多様な部門とチームの参加が欠かせません。MBD イニシアチブにトップダウンの推進が必要とされる理由(英語)はここにもあります。今回のブログでは,MBD イニシアチブを設計部門以外の人々に展開していく方法について解説します。 MBD データは一般的に設計チームが作成を担当しますが,これはコインの一方の面にすぎません。

A year ago, I wrote an article about How to Dimension Silhouette Edges Using SOLIDWORKS MBD. This technique is often used to specify revolved bodies such as toruses in relief grooves, cones in chamfers, or shoulder heights on shafts and holes. Figure 1 below shows several examples in a detailed view of a shaft. Figure 1.

To collaborate with suppliers, engineers often need to send technical documents such as CAD models, neutral STEP files, 2D drawings, QA provisions, and internal standards. This list goes on, and each document in this long list may generate its own revisions over time. In order to consolidate the fragmented documents, the U.S. Military Standard 31000A: 2013 recommended a concept called Technical Data Package (TDP). The gist is to bundle multiple technical documents together into one package to

これまでのブログでは,表 1 の(躊躇しない)(Part 1,Part 2)や(導入推進チームを設置する)を取り上げてきました。そうした導入推進チームのほとんどが,参加者の意識をどう高めるか,特にチームメンバー以外のモチベーションをどう引き出すか,という疑問に直面します。今回はその答えをいくつかご紹介しましょう。 2 次元図面から MBD に移行する際には,多種多様な抵抗を受けることになります。

As manufacturers across the globe implement Model-Based Enterprise (MBE) processes, a key question is how to measure progress and gauge success. The MBE Maturity Capability Index provides a handy tool to clearly analyze the current status and indicate the next steps. Figure 1 provides an overview. Figure 1.
