We’re all familiar with the old saying that “two heads are better than one”, but in product development it is a common fact. Take medical devices for example, bringing a new product to market, in this industry, can not only take years, but lots of expertise from countless individuals and various companies to deal with the complicated process of clinical trials, risk management, patents and countless regulations.

So, to aid the cross functional collaborative team approach, many manufacturing companies are now adopting the Model Based Enterprise (MDE) initiative. This organisational strategy deliberately aims to break down working silos with the aim of creating an environment where data is shared internally throughout the entire business and externally with those partners involved in bringing the product to market.

But this system can not be successful without first implementing a Model Based Definition (MBD) strategy. This is where all the technical engineering data and product attributes needed to define a product, such as tolerances and GD&T, are embedded in the 3D CAD model. Thus creating a single authoritative source of integrated information that can be used throughout an organisation.

Sourcing assistance to hit crucial design and development deadlines is usually a necessity. We understand the importance of working together as a team, to achieve a shared desired outcome. If you’re looking for a collaborative partner to work with, especially in the area of component design for injection moulded products, then look no further. After all, we definitely acknowledge that “there’s no ‘I’ in team”.
