Anark Sponsored the Defense Manufacturing Conference 2022

December 5-8, 2022 Tampa, FL:  Anark enjoyed an exceptional Defense Manufacturing Conference in 2022 in Tampa as a sponsor and presenter.  The timing of DMC 2022 was excellent in that The Digital Manufacturing Institute (MxD) had just selected Anark to demonstrate a visionary solution for supplier collaboration on a project that is being executed throughout 2023. This project will modernize acquisition and supply chain activities to improve acquisition and production lead times for the Defense Logistics Agency (DLA)


We talked to a number of prospects, customers and partners about how Anark Collaborate makes product data accessible and actionable across manufacturers and their suppliers for better, faster decisions. Anark Collaborate extends the value of PLM, CAD and other authoritative data systems for customers like Boeing, GE Gas Power, NAVAIR, Lockheed, Army, Navy, Air Force and more.  Anark VP of Marketing Patrick Dunfey presented on how Anark Collaborate enables a frictionless supplier collaboration portal together with modern or legacy systems and data. For too long, manufacturers have made trade-offs by using generic content collaboration platforms or procurement systems for supplier collaboration, with poor results.

Experience gained through past DOD projects such the NAVAIR PMA-261 3D Digital Transformation Project helped define automated systems for the creation, validation and delivery of standards-based Technical Data Packages (3Di documents) to the Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) and other Navy groups, all based on MIL-STD-31000B for future provisioning, cataloging and sustainment needs.  This trend of 3Di creation is accelerating with defense services requiring technical data be validated and delivered using 3D PDF, an approach that Anark pioneered 10+ years ago.  Anark is also well position to support the future Cloud based DOD initiative via the MxD engagement plus, similar activities at Aerospace & Defense OEMs.
