Multiple Startup Configurations

Question (posted with Registration):

Kelly Carter, Elk Products

Answered by: Gavin Rumble, Technical Director

What are Users saying about MBD?

Question (posted with Registration):

What are other users experiences with MBD? What are pros and cons? What was the business application? How are stakeholder requirements different, and how are they determined? What metrics were used for evaluating implementation effectiveness? What training was needed? Who needs training? What resources need to be budgeted? What order of magnitude does it cost per user or employee?

Marc Von Amsberg, Preformed Line Products

Answered by: Gavin Rumble, Technical Director

Marc, thank you your question.  Please see the presentation posted by Leo Greene for the Spring 2018 (Flywheel) event.  Many of your specific questions would make great content for a future presentation…will you be able to share them with the group after you have worked with MBD for a while?
