Enabling Digital Transformation Across the Ecosystem with Digital Thread

Creating smarter products require corresponding advancements in smarter processes and tools. It is essential for manufacturing to leverage existing legacy digital assets from both upstream and downstream domains but must also include the ecosystem of design partners, manufacturing suppliers, services partners and the products themselves.

Defining and implementing a digital thread/digital twins Platform will provide benefits of streamlined processes, knowledge synthesis, and continuous improvement through increased visibility, traceability, reuse, and asset interchangeability.
