Creo-MBD -- Boost PMI usage by user based attributes

Creo-MBD -- Boost PMI usage by user based attributes

Creo-MBD -- Boost PMI usage by user based attributes

Digitalization, in engineering by Model Based Definition leads instantly to the questions beyond standard quality characteristics on the CAD model:

  • how to track/handle/identify detached data sets of the CAD-model in data network and/or in diverse post processes/systems
  • how to  enrich standard semantic information set in PMIs to support processing topics in workflows, indicators/hints,  machining issues, analysis, manufacturing, ...

This is not in contradiction with given data models in neutral data formats like STEP and JT.
They already offer the possibility for additional user attributes in standard PMIs as well as definitions of non standard classified PMIs.

 

Requirement:

  • Provide  user based attributes(properties) for PMI in Creo
  • Ensure that user based PMI attributes are exported correctly to neutral data formats JT & STEP

Use Cases:

  • add a UUID to characteristic/PMI to identify characteristics-object independently from CAD-Model as data set in all subsequent IT processes/systems
  • Add key/value pair(s) to extend standard PMI information sets
    Regarding various manufacturing methods it enables PMI information which could not be represented in currently standardized PMI classes e.g. ; criticality of specifications, special machining or IT processing, functions to enable specific Creo Toolkit Applications, Exclusion of PMIs for specific post processes, etc.
  • one way to enrich semantical information which must be attached to the model for future upcoming use cases, not covered in (present) standard 

Business Value:
If a 3-D-CAD-Model should replace a drawing, leveraging the digital approch, this medium acts like a data container which must serve data processing/analysis topics and various manufacturing topics, already described in use cases. Without requested PMI enhancement MBD approach will be truncated.
