Pratt & Whitney is seeking an Engineering Lead - Model Based Definition, Manufacture & Inspection (MBDMI).  MBDMI involves eliminating 2D drawings and replacing them with a 3D Solid Model as the design authority which contains digitally annotated product information needed for manufacture and inspection.  This eliminates the need to manually translate information from a traditional drawing when it is consumed by our internal manufacturing centers, quality teams and suppliers.
