Allowing Suppliers and OEMs to Collaborate using Model Based Definition (MBD)

If you’re an OEM whose Suppliers can't use your digital product models, or a Supplier receiving OEM digital designs which are incompatible with your existing processes, DAA can help. 


DAA ensures OEM and Supplier design, manufacturing, and inspection processes work seamlessly under MBD.  Which leads to higher performing partnerships that improve cycle time, cost, and quality for all.

Supplier Integration Solutions

DAA has a solution for Suppliers who are unable to efficiently use their OEM customers' MBD digital product models.  DAA translates OEM digital designs to be compatible with Supplier CAD, CAM, and Inspection applications and processes.  Suppliers get the data they need for accurate quotes, no longer must recreate OEM designs to fit their processes, and can manufacture and inspect products according to the exact OEM definition.  All with minimal disruption to the Supplier's existing process.
