Abstract: For any transition journey, one needs a vision for your organization to get started; one needs plans, for your organization to finish; and one needs an index for your organization to define a path for success.  This paper introduces the next generation Model-Based Enterprise (MBE) Maturity Index that helps define and normalize the transition from a document-centric, drawing-based business to a part-centric, digital, model-based enterprise. The aim of this paper is to share NNSA’s efforts related to MBE and thus help increase the pace of progress in industry.

Bio: Sarah Hale has worked as mechanical engineer at Sandia National Laboratories for nine years.  She earned a BS from Oklahoma State and a MS from Georgia Tech, both in Mechanical Engineering.  She spent eight years as a finite element analyst on the Modeling and Simulation Team and joined the Model Based Enterprise team after noticing that analysis models are frustratingly disconnected from CAD models.  As an MBE architect, she works to find ways to connect and reuse all types of models.  In her free time, she enjoys volunteering with her church and Girl Scouts.

Connect to your community of practice. Mix with people who have the same professional interests as you do, but with a diversity of perspective beyond daily workmates. It comes in handy when you need help or answers to questions outside your accumulated experience, need a connection at another organization, or simply want some mind stretching thought.
