Problem description of assignment

Philips is a company dedicated to improving lives through meaningful innovation, which makes quality vital in everything that Philips does.

2D drawings and 3D models are used during the product development process to specify product requirements. A 2D drawing view consists of dimensional- and geometrical elements. Recent developments in dimension definition (Model Based Engineering) showed that this could help to improve the geometry verification, manufacturing processes and quality checks for products. Model Based Engineering only make use of 3D models. At this moment at Philips only 2D drawings are used to specify the product requirements. Our machines are not able to work with a 2D drawing, in contrast to a 3D model. 2D drawings causes human interpretation issues that could result in effecting the quality of the product. The transition from 2D to 3D could results in interpretation issues, that also might impact the quality of the product.
