Anark supported this joint workshop by DOD/NIST and industry at The National Institute of Standards, Gaithersburg, MD. We presented how visual collaboration and MBE publishing software enables U.S. Defense industry leaders such as the US Army, US Navy, US Airforce, Lockheed-Martin, Boeing, Raytheon, Honeywell, and General Dynamics to communicate and collaborate more effectively and securely through the generation of role-specific engineering release, supply chain, manufacturing, inspection and field service/IOT 3D PDF based Technical Data Package documents.
Anark solutions have enabled the replacement of traditional 2D engineering drawings as the core of technical data packages defined by MIL-STD-31000 and the ASME Y14 series of standards. The DOD is releasing a new revision to MIL-STD-31000 Technical Data Packages, which will formally include 3D Intelligent (3Di) PDF technical data as a more capable option than 2D drawings. This is part of an overarching effort by the U.S.DOD to transform to a modern technical data infrastructure based on 3Di PDF and Model Based Design (MBD) approaches.
