Strategic Decision Analysis and Support for Product Design
Program Director: Dr. Ken Versprille
The Social Product Development & Collaboration Knowledge Council (SPD&C) represents the authoritative industry source for the implementation and architecture of digital product modeling and design collaboration technologies, and for their reconciliation in product engineering and manufacturing process planning. Numerous organizations, many of them among the world’s largest manufacturing companies, and an extensive range of commercial solution providers, collaborate with us as equal partners to define an evolving engineering framework for PLM.
The SPD&C framework accelerates decision-making and improves reliability across the critical engineering processes of product design and modeling, analysis, collaboration, visualization, knowledge engineering, and manufacturing process development. These disciplines serve as springboards for gaining competitive advantage. The SPD&C program applies our structured methodology to the evaluation of new products and processes and to current projects in client organizations. The SPD&C advisory service is designed to help client organizations harness the power of technology and process best practices to achieve bottom-line benefits.
The Council's current agenda focuses on the following critical issues:
A list of available documents follows.
- Can Direct Modeling Eliminate CAD Data Translation—If So, How Completely?
- Model Validation
- Mechanical Mechanisms and Simulation
- Geometric Search
