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.

Belcan Presents at 3DEXPERIENCE World 2024

We are excited to be attending 3DEXPERIENCE World in Dallas, Texas on February 11th-14th. One of our Senior MBE Engineers, Matt Patton, will be presenting at several MBD-centric events during the conference to educate and promote discussion amongst the community. As a Senior MBE Engineer at Belcan, Matt advises companies in transitioning to utilizing annotated models throughout the product lifecycle instead of 2D drawings. Through the lens of 16 years designing products in various CAD software — including 13 years in SOLIDWORKS with a CSWP and leaning on his Senior level

Factors for Manufacturers to Consider When Executing a Model-Based Engineering Supply Chain Strategy

Supply Chain Strategy Execution Readying your supply chain for model-based definition (MBD) consumption and creation starts with forming a robust supply chain strategy. Once you have a strategy, it is time to execute. When bridging the gap and moving into the execution phase, having a game plan will be just as important as it was when forming an initial strategy. See below for four key factors to consider when moving into the execution phase: 1. Selecting Suppliers Selecting the right suppliers to take the next step into the model-based

Factors for Manufacturers to Consider When Creating a Model-Based Engineering Supply Chain Strategy

Manufacturers play a vital role in the engineering product lifecycle, transforming design plans and raw materials into functional parts and products in the real world. When there’s a major shift in the design and definition phases, it’s natural that downstream product lifecycle phases would be impacted. Currently, the engineering world is undergoing a shift from using traditional 2D drawings to 3D model-centric product definition approaches. The natural progression for model-based definition (MBD) is for manufacturing to incorporate model-based approaches into their workflows and day to day operations. However, before you
