SAAB’s model based development reduced costs and lead time

Here is an interesting blog post about the Gripen E program of SAAB’s aeronautics group:

Paper Is Passe – Model-Based Development (MBD) Keeps The Gripen E Programme On Time

The post describes how their model-based development (MBD) was helpful in improving overall operations of the Gripen E project. The following three bullet points are especially noteworthy because these are exactly what we typically hear from CATIA Composer users as well who decided to say goodbye to paper and implemented 3D as a master source of all references:

• Higher quality of parts (assembly verification done using simulators etc.)

• Assembly work instruction is more user friendly

• Reduced lead time for changes

Please look at our past posts on to find out how 3D can be used to enjoy such benefits.
