Past Events and Webinars

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

January 2018 at The National Institute of Standards, Gaithersburg, MD

Anark supported this joint workshop by DOD/NIST and industry and presented how our 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/IOT 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 the U.S.DOD to transform to a modern technical data infrastructure based on 3Di PDF and Model Based Design (MBD) approaches.

Surviving OEM Supply-Chain Mandates Webinar

January 2016

Knowledge workers in the enterprise need to access multiple authoritative engineering and manufacturing databases using a variety of processes to perform their role. Instead of saddling users with complex client tools and processes, this webinar explains how customers implement multi-data publishing with Anark Core. Bring together the engineering and technical data that knowledge workers need for their role, without the need for complex and expensive PLM or ERP client licenses.

Global OEM mandates, Innovation from non-traditional sources, increasing product complexity, growing supplier responsibility for quality and continuous, unrelenting pressures to reduce program cost are impacting suppliers like never before. Leading suppliers are fighting back with 3D Model-Based Enterprise strategies. What are these firms doing and how does your company measure up to the leaders? The MBE Supply Chain connection is a universal challenge in Automotive, Aerospace and more. In this webinar we draw some examples from Automotive, but understand the discussion and the underlying tools discussed apply to all supply chain challenges.
