Belcan is excited to sponsor the upcoming MBE & QIF Summits on April 16th – 19th in Chicago, Illinois.

The MBE Summit & QIF Summit combines the Model-Based Enterprise (MBE) and Quality Information Framework (QIF) summits into one-cohesive event. This conference provides an exciting opportunity to benchmark successes and failures to gain the valuable insights needed to accelerate your MBE journey.  The QIF Summit focuses on the open standard that facilitates the seamless movement of a model-based definition and manufacturing quality data.

ASME MBE Committee and Y14/MBE Harmonization Joint Working Group Overview

Date: Tuesday, April 16th, 2024

Time: 10:30 am – 11:00 am CDT

Evan Kessick, MBE Discipline Manager, will be providing an update and general overview of the ASME Y14/MBE Harmonization Joint Working Group and how interested individuals and organizations can help steer the ASME Y14 and MBE committees to support model-based definition and model-based enterprise efforts.

In this presentation Evan will review the harmonization JWG charter, review the group’s past accomplishments, and review some of the top challenges the group has uncovered for MBD/MBE adoption.

Panel – Is it Time to Take a More Aggressive Approach to Achieving a Fully Semantic MBE

Date: Wednesday April 17th, 2024

Time: 1:10pm – 2:40pm CDT

Mike Werkheiser, Director of MBE, will join a panel to discuss the need to balance human readability and machine automation when authoring Model-Based Definition.  The panel will advocate that MBD must be intelligent, semantic, and interoperable to return its promised value.  This 90-minute interactive panel will request the audience to share challenges they have experienced in striking the balance between human and machine consumers.

MBD Characterization Workflows

Date: Thursday April 18th, 2024

Time: 9:50 pm – 10:35 pm CDT

Mike Werkheiser, Director of MBE, and Evan Kessick, MBE Discipline Manager, will be co-presenting on how Model-Based Characteristic Accountability contributes to the promised value of Model-Based Definition (MBD) by establishing a complete, digital, persistent, and traceable thread from engineering through quality workflows such as APQP, CMM, and FAI.

In this presentation, you will learn about the purpose of fully characterizing MBD requirements, the importance of aligning to industry standards, and key benefits of leveraging and reusing the Bill of Characteristics (BOC). In addition, you will gain a better understanding of how Quality Information Framework (QIF) can enable a traceable and interoperable digital thread.
