MBD Capabilities

MBD360 is a leader in developing and delivering Model-Based Enterprise (MBE) training and consulting.  Our principals are not only industry experienced Subject Matter Experts (SMEs), but they are also leaders in the MBE standards.  This expertise is reflected in our bios (Click Here) and our core capabilities listed below.

MBE Capability Assessments

To know what an organization needs to do to implement MBE concepts the entity must first understand where it is on the spectrum.  Our principals help develop a tool known as the MBE Capability Index.  This tool provides a method for scoring the various parts of an organization when it comes to how well you use model-based data or what many call the digital thread.

MBD360 uses this tool combined with business process and data mapping techniques to assess the level of an organization.  We then engage with your key stakeholders to find out where you want and need to be based upon your unique buisness model.  This analysis is then combined into a roadmap to achieve these goals.

We have performed this process for both industry and Department of Defense clients for many years.  One recent example is our work assessing the Army’s Joint Manufacturing Technology Center (JMTC) at Rock Island Arsenal.  This effort is documented in the presentation below given at the MBE Summit in 2017. 

MBE Levels


We have several SMEs that can assist any organization in not only implementing MBE, but in many areas that enable MBE itself.  Our SMEs are all leaders in the field and when we do not have a needed expertise we can call upon an extensive network of providers from across industry. 
Some of our areas of expertise are:

  • - MBE Process Development and Optimization
  • - CAD Standards and Best Practices
  • - Advanced and Smart Machining Applications and Development
  • - Product Lifecycle Management and MBE Process Integration
  • - MBE Supply Chain Processes and Integration
  • - Contracting for MBE
  • - Model-Based Definition for Additive Manufacturing
  • - CAD/Model Data Quality
  • - Light Weight Visualization (3D PDFs) of the Product Definition Throughout the Lifecycle


In addition to the courses described on our training tab, our SMEs can create custom courses for your unique business needs.  We can then deliver classes at your location, our facility or via a webinar to your target audience. (click for training events)
