Having all of your model information all in one place may seem like an impossible dream. However some engineers are starting to realise the advantages of Model-Based Definition (MBD) and use it as the basis for their businesses. With MBD, not only can engineers keep all of their model designs and annotations in one place, but start to realise the full value of their 3D assets.
The release of Creo Parametric 4.0 is imminent. You may be watching closely, ready to buy and install it, or you might be wondering whether it is right software for you. To try and help you make your decision, we’ve rounded up 7 advantages of the upgrade.

The prospect of improving the quality of products without adding cost or employee time seems like a pipe dream, doesn't it? It is possible, though, and can be achieved with the introduction of simulation during the design process.
For our 25th Anniversary, Concurrent Engineering will be running an open day to celebrate CAD software innovation next month. This free event will offer visitors the chance to learn more about the capabilities of CAD software and how it can innovate product development for a range of businesses.
The prophecies of 1980s science fiction movies appear to have been rather accurate. We can now walk into our homes, shout “lights!” and watch as the room illuminates; our cars talk to us and guide us to our destination; our mobile phones can recognise inference and respond to natural questioning; smartwatches track our heart rates and daily steps.
A lot of employees in your organisation have to get the same result, but they all use different methods of getting there. Hundreds of calculations have been scribbled on so many bits of paper that engineers can’t keep track of where they are, never mind worry about whether they’re following best practice or not.
