Digital Thread

CIMdata Report: The Digital Thread, A Key Enabler for Success

The pressure on manufacturers to deliver more and better products faster doesn’t let up. To rise to the challenge, they need to develop new processes that will give them the efficiency, agility, and collaboration they need to take advantage of market opportunities and remain competitive. One of the most critical tools in their toolbox is the digital thread: a collection of all data about a product from all points in the product lifecycle. While the concept is simple, significant technology is required to integrate the multitude of data streams from disparate enterprise software or platforms. That’s what a product lifecycle management (PLM) solution is made for. Evaluating Service Providers and Solutions CIMdata has developed a set of critical success factors to help manufacturers evaluate both products and service providers as potential partners in a digital transformation effort. PLM expertise: Data integration experts with “deep technical and business knowledge” and a wealth of experience with PLM integrations. PLM plus: Potential partners with thorough knowledge of a variety of PLM solutions. Global reach: A partner that can think globally about your global operations processes. An eye for ROI: A critical ability to accurately scope a project and offer a realistic and competitive price. Process translators: Not only…

Strengthen Your Digital Thread: Inventory and Map

Most people have more product data than they realize, and the places where the digital thread needs to be built out or reinforced is not always obvious. If you’re not sure where to get started, take an inventory of your technical data (digital and analog), map out if and how it connects to your digital thread, and then step back to look at it. If you’re not sure how to do this, let me offer some steps you can take to get it going.

Many Paths to a Digital Thread

Digital Thread is a popular buzzword today, and once you learn the definition it is hard to argue against having one in any engineering organization. Agreeing that digital threads are nice, and setting about building a digital thread, are two entirely different things.

Digital Thread Assessment

Digital Thread Assessment Razorleaf is excited to launch the Digital Thread Maturity Assessment for manufacturing organizations to help determine their stage in the Digital Thread Journey. Manufacturers require a traceable, reliable digital thread to keep the critical processes, data, and structures moving forward. Our assessment can help your organization identify the data, files and contextual information required to support your engineering processes and determine integration points required for a successful Digital Thread.
