There is a lot happening on the topic of Model-Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) at the moment. The annual INCOSE event in Torrance, which featured an MBSE workshop, and the recent publication of the Aerospace & Defense PLM Action Group's position paper [download here] on Model-Based Systems Engineering Data Interoperability to name just a couple of examples. The importance of MBSE is one of the reasons that it will be a featured topic at CIMdata's upcoming 2019 PLM Market & Industry Forum—we at CIMdata hope that you will join us to learn more about this topic. Let's get started with the blog! The widespread digitalization of discrete product development processes combined with the ever-increasing complexity of today’s cyber-physical systems is increasing focus on connecting and managing the digital thread of data and models from the early conceptual systems design to the downstream functions more typically managed within the scope of PLM.

Getting to Markets of One

Many companies pursuing digitalization or Industry 4.0 strategies share a common goal: being able to profitably serve markets of one by making their products and processes more configurable. Products have been a part of commerce since almost from the beginning of commerce. Artisans used their knowledge of (mostly) local materials and fabrication methods to deliver products locally. Advances in transportation brought new materials and made offering products in distant locales feasible, while also bringing new knowledge of competing products, materials, and manufacturing methods. Advances in communication technology made collaboration more feasible across great distances. Fast forward to today, where we have moved from vertically integrated firms in the early 20th century, to advanced supply chain management and marketplaces to bring the necessary value chain participants together in a collaborative extended enterprise. The early 21st century brought a new vision, Industry 4.0, that built upon the three generations of manufacturing that came
