Model Based Enterprise (MBE) Work Group

AIAG's Model Based Enterprise (MBE) Work Group vision is to move the Automotive Industry to a 3D Model Based Enterprise, through the adoption of Model Based Definition (MBD) practices. This requires the 3D CAD model to include all of the information that completely defines a product (such as physical geometry, configuration, functional requirement relationships, attributes and procedural information). This information can then be consumed throughout the extended enterprise enabling seamless sharing, reduced costs, increased efficiencies and quality.

The MBE Work Group believes that we can achieve this vision by helping companies realize the benefits of their investment in technology, and the extended value of their product definition data by:

  • Developing guidelines and best practices to educate and prepare the Automotive Industry
  • Working with the industry software providers.
