U.S. DoD/NIST/Industry 3Di PDF TDP Workshop

January 30-31, 2018, The National Institute of Standards, Gaithersburg, MD

Anark’s visual collaboration and MBE publishing software enables U.S. Defense industry leaders such as the US Army, US Navy, US Airforce, Lockheed-Martin, Boeing, Raytheon, Honeywell, and General Dynamics to communicate and collaborate more effectively and securely through the generation of role-specific engineering release, supply chain, manufacturing, inspection and field service/IIOT 3D PDF based Technical Data Package documents.

Anark solutions have enabled the replacement of traditional 2D engineering drawings as the core of technical data packages defined by MIL-STD-31000 and the ASME Y14 series of standards. The DOD is releasing a new revision to MIL-STD-31000 Technical Data Packages, which will formally include 3D Intelligent (3Di) pdf technical data as a more capable option than 2D drawings. This is part of an overarching effort by DOD to transform to a modern technical data infrastructure based on 3Di pdf and Model Based Design (MBD) approaches.

Anark is looking forward to supporting this joint workshop by DOD/NIST and Industry to discuss and advance these very important initiatives.
