Kubotek to Sponsor CIC Bonus Round Table Discussion on Aerospace, Model Based Definition and the FAA

The Role of Interoperability in CFR 14 Part 21 (Data Use in Certification), Order 8000.7 and Draft Advisory Circular AC21-XXX on Model Based Definition and Moving Certification Data in the Aerospace Industry.

MARLBOROUGH, Mass — Kubotek USA and Aerospace Industry leaders will host an open round table session to talk about the new Model Based Definition (MBD) process proposed by the FAA for preserving 3D data used to design and build aircraft. Leading the discussions will be James DeLaPorte from Gulfstream and Bob Deragisch from Parker Aerospace. Topics will include the dos, don’ts and best practices from an OEM and tier one supplier perspective.

Robert Bean, Executive Vice President and Jim Gordon, Vice President of Development and LOTAR Committee Member will be hosting the session for Kubotek USA.

Robert Bean states, “We have a great opportunity to discuss what these new regulations—released in draft form last week—mean to the Aerospace industry and hear from industry experts who are leading the charge with MBD certifications. OEMs and suppliers can get a head start on compliance methodology before the Advisory Circular is formally issued.”

This informal discussion will take place immediately following the Collaboration & Interoperability Congress (CIC) on May 5. It is scheduled to run from 12:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m. and will be open to all CIC attendees.

If you are interested in attending this session, please contact Paula Garside from Kubotek USA at Email Contact or (508) 265-6335 to register. Lunch will be provided to all registrants.

The CIC is organized by Longview Advisors. CIC, now in its sixth year, brings together experts and executives from a wide range of discrete manufacturing industries, as well as representatives from government and defense communities, to discuss the latest issues and solutions in collaboration and interoperability with 3D product data.
