Flightdeck Flight Simulation Center
1650 Sinclair Street
Anaheim, CA 92806

Join us for our free workshop from 11 a.m to 5 p.m. in Anaheim. Register today.

Leveraging 3D Model Based Definition (3DMBD) Data in the Aerospace Supply Chain

Speaker: Randy Becker, Senior Quality Inspector, Aerospace OEM

Aerospace OEMs such as Boeing, Gulfstream and Bombardier are changing from a drawing-based authority to a 3D model-based paradigm. Although OEMs have seen substantial cost reduction by eliminating drawings, it has caused a huge impact to the aerospace supply chain. During this session.Randy Becker will present best practices on how to use 3DMBD data to streamline manufacturing operations and ensure OEM quality deliverables are met.

3DMBD – An Aerospace Suppliers Perspective

Speaker: Jamie Young, President, My Machine Inc.

During this presentation, Jamie will present how My Maine uses 3DMBD Data to manufacture, inspect and deliver machined parts to Boeing.

Automating In-Process Inspection with 3D Scanning

Speaker: Frank Thomas, Metrology Specialist, Adaptive Corp.

Speaker: Larry Kuehn, Quality Guru, Adaptive Corp.

In-Process inspection can be a time and resource consuming process. By incorporating Adaptive’s “Universal Metrology Platform,” customers can select a wide range of 3D scanning solutions for fast real-time in-process inspection of production parts. Attendees to this session will learn:

  • What is the Universal Metrology Automation (UMA) Platform?
  • What types of Robots does UMA support?
  • What do we mean by “real-time” inspection?
  • Is there any SPC data collected?
  • How do I compare the physical part to the CAD data nominal with tight tolerances?

*2 – 5 p.m. is an optional tour of the Flight Simulation Center: Experience the thrill of aerial maneuvers at 600 knots and air-to-air combat in an authentic military flight simulator. Feel what it’s like to take the controls of a commercial airliner in our Boeing 737 flight simulator.

Adaptive Hosts Two CA Aerospace Supplier Compliance Workshops

Adaptive is hosting two workshops for Aerospace suppliers who are interested in learning more about how to meet aerospace OEM requirements for Model Based Definition (MBD) compliance.

Join Us on May 15 or 16, 2018

Meet Aerospace OEM Requirements using Model Based Definition (MBD)

If you answer yes to one or more of these questions, you should plan to attend this workshop:

  • Are you looking to understand Model Based definition better?
  • Are you seeking D6-51991 certification or something similar to qualify as an aerospace supplier?
  • Are you looking for options to reduce the time involved in FAI?
  • Are you looking to leverage SPC to reduce the amount of inspection you are performing?

Attend this workshop and learn how to meet Aerospace OEM requirements

Adaptive Ensures Customer Meets Boeing Supply Chain Requirements

When a customer needed to document the processes and procedures necessary to qualify as a Boeing supplier under their D6-51991 Quality Assurance Standard, Adaptive stepped in to help them meet the necessary documentation requirements for compliance.


The Quality Assurance Standard for Digital Product Definition at Boeing Suppliers (Boeing’s D6-51991) provides the basis for Boeing suppliers to create and implement plans, user level procedures, and process documentation governing the handling of Boeing-furnished datasets. As such, the DPD governs a wide variety of activities, starting with basic operations, such as how the supplier performs configuration management and maintains media security, the use and maintenance of product acceptance software, how measurement and test equipment is calibrated and certified, how internal quality audits are accomplished, and how the supplier’s employees are trained to assure competence in their roles and compliance in their daily work.

Learn how Adaptive worked with the customer, as well as Boeing auditors, to respond to every section in Boeing’s DPD specifications.
