As many organizations digitalize their engineering and product development processes, the need for a traceable, reliable digital thread becomes a critical element in turning a corner in digital transformation. Knowing how, when, and why product decisions were made can become a very important factor when innovating on existing designs. It becomes even more critical when you are pulling up older product designs from previous years.
Razorleaf’s Digital Thread and Your Enhanced Production

A comprehensive digital thread enables an engineering team to fully record and trace the product development process from start to finish. It provides a mechanism to collect all relevant documents, files, and contextual information that go into how products move from one stage of the process to the next. This data is typically stored in a PLM system, which is designed to manage and support engineering design processes.
Let the experts at Razorleaf assist you on your journey. We can help you identify what data, files and contextual information are needed to support your engineering processes. We will help identify all integration points needed for success, and bring all the moving parts together to achieve a thread that represents the development of products or processes in your organization.
