Learning Curve
A not-so-secret blog of digital innovation

Welcome to Learning Curve, Belcan’s Not-So-Secret Blog of Digital Engineering Innovation. This is a place for passionate digital engineering and technology practitioners to discuss, learn, experiment, and inform on challenges we find interesting and solvable. We’ll report on current state obstacles, share outcomes of our investigations, and provide real-world tips for energizing your technical practice with digital innovation. If you’ve ever found yourself wondering, “Haven’t we fixed this already?,” or “We’re still doing it this way?,” then this is the place for you. We ask those questions all the time, and here’s what we think about it.

Native and Derivative CAD Files – Imperfect Twins

Computer-aided design (CAD) has transformed product definition and has been a catalyst for model-based definition (MBD), helping organizations end their reliance on legacy drawing-based processes. Even though CAD has been an enabler for MBD, many organizations are using CAD for both 2D and 3D definition. CAD technology advancements have enabled engineers to increase the amount of detail and the accuracy of digital representations of products and requirements. The ability to digitalize product manufacturing information (PMI), in addition to part geometry, enables CAD files to contain a complete design data set

Digital to Physical: Applying Model-Based Engineering to Real-World Scenarios

Today, the principles of systems engineering are applied across various industries and engineering disciplines. These principles are often very relevant to our day-to-day lives and experiences. Each day when you walk out the door it is highly probable you encounter numerous things that were shaped by systems engineering. Take traffic lights for example. Whether you live in a location where you drive, bike, walk, or utilize public transportation, it is likely you rely on traffic control systems to safely get to where you need to go. At first glance, traffic

Demystify Model-Based Definition by Conducting an End-To-End Pilot Project

Initiating a pilot project is an essential step in the model-based definition (MBD) journey because it’s where talk turns into action. A pilot project offers organizations an exploratory, dynamic way to kick things off and avoid wasting months – or even years – hashing out the details of hypothetical MBD implementation. An end-to-end MBD pilot project entails creating a part within your existing delivery system without a 2D drawing. Taking this approach and walking through the various steps it requires is valuable because it reveals who interacts with the product
