The Global Product Data Interoperability Summit (GPDIS) functions as a communications hub for industry principals to foster knowledge through the exchange of ideas, solutions, and methods.
It is a place to build consensus on the data, tool and process standards based on the experience of liked minded professionals.
Unlike any other conference, GPDIS represents the core data representations and delivery systems that drive our industries.
The format is vendor-neutral, but all solution providers are encouraged to demonstrate both their technologies and their success stories.
The range of process methods encompasses MBE, MBD, MBSE, CAM, Product Analysis, Support, the emerging technologies and more.
The depth of experience extends from a vibrant vendor community, through the large OEMs and engaged lower tiered suppliers, to the family manufacturing business.
The model based supply chain; what is reality?
For quite some time, our focus has been on the production of interoperable data and the progress has been quite impressive. Software that enables more sophisticated product design, manufacturing, and support has enriched the product lifecycle in ways previously not imagined just a decade ago. As the industry moves to a model based paradigm at the value stream level, concepts like digital threads, digital twins, Internet of Things, collaborative integrated digital environments, and more build upon this foundation.
How is the supply chain reacting to this? By some estimates, upwards of 70% of any manufactured product is purchased. With such a high degree of design and manufacturing delegated to the supply chain, consuming the interoperable data and providing interoperable data back to the purchaser becomes a mandatory item. As we enthusiastically expand upon the means of producing interoperable data, are the means of consumption keeping up?
Join us for GPDIS 2023 where we will examine this important topic and more with key insights from industry leaders and solution providers alike. Along with our industry leading technical discussions in a multi-track format that includes the Model Based domains in Engineering and Manufacturing, Digital Twin/Thread, and Emergent Technology, and Interoperable Standards, we will host workshops focused on long term data retention, MBSE, and more
