3D Collaboration & Interoperability Congress
Name: 3D Collaboration & Interoperability Congress
Date: October 15, 2018 - October 18, 2018
The 3D Collaboration & Interoperability Congress focuses on CAD collaboration and interoperability for the entire product lifecycle. More than ever before, information needs to be digital and fully associated as Model-Based Definition, Model- Based Enterprise, Smart Manufacturing, and Internet of Things continue to evolve. For discrete manufacturing, this means CAD interoperability and collaboration to enable the digital thread. 3D CIC returns to the American Mountaineering Center in Golden, Colorado for the 2018 event. The 2018 3D CIC theme is Enterprise Accountability. Each day will have a focused perspective: Culture & Champions, Quality, and Manufacturing. What does Enterprise Accountability mean for 3D collaboration and interoperability for the product lifecycle? Products are built by designing, manufacturing, and maintaining quality at each step of content generation. Adequacy of information across the enterprise can be checked by software and humans. Software tools automate and resolve execution deficiencies while revealing errors that require human attention. New procedures written to take advantage of a digital transformation inside Industry 4.0 require persistent consistence to influence organizational culture that naturally resists change. Speakers at this year’s 3D CIC event will move this conversation forward. The 3D Collaboration & Interoperability Congress has become a yearly barometer of the state of collaboration and interoperability strategy, technology, and solutions for commercial and government organizations. Presenters and attendees are real-world users who represent the medical, aerospace, defense, electronics, automotive, industrial equipment, and other product development industries, with strong support by technology leaders for CAD collaboration and interoperability. 3D CIC is structured with a focus on the end-user experience. The success of their Model-Based Enterprise journeys would not be possible without the 3D CAD software, interoperability solutions, and expertise offered by the 3D CIC sponsors. 3D CIC provides a relaxed and intimate experience to interact with up to 200 attendees representing aerospace and defense, space, medical, industrial equipment, electronics, shipbuilding, and other product development industries who are seriously researching or implementing digital strategies today. “This is one of the best conferences I’ve attended over the past 20 years. The software agnostic nature of the presentations and the cross section of companies led to great discussions.” “The camaraderie is unmatched. It truly feels like a room of people interested in helping each other on being successful on the crazy path to MBD.” Action Engineering produces the 3D Collaboration & Interoperability Congress with the support of 3D CIC’s founder and long-time lead, David Prawel of Longview Advisors. Action Engineering is grateful for Mr. Prawel’s continued support of 3D CIC.
