Our use of technology fits two important aspects of information of any manufacturing entity. The Digital Thread is focused on the product and digital aspects of the product while in the production environment providing a point-by-point traceability. Production Process Management (PPM) is the providing the information exchanges between resources to accomplish the production plan.

Digital Thread aims to provide a unified and consistent view of a product throughout its entire lifecycle, enabling better communication, collaboration, and decision-making. Our efforts support the connected flow of digital information throughout the production cycle of your product. This involves the seamless integration of data, information, and knowledge across production steps.

Production Process Management™ is a way to ensure manufacturing information is managed effectively across any manufacturing organization based on YOUR processes. Eliminate the information silos and view your business as a set of processes. Processes are designed to follow chronological steps of how you want to accomplish a manufacturing task by connecting and supporting predefined sequenced events. A process may be fully electronic, fully or partially manual, or a combination. One key thought is that a PPM process can be quickly modeled, tested and deployed exactly to fit the given business requirement irrespective of any software application.

These tools are not software applications but a process modeling and execution framework that fits in any manufacturing environment. Key aspects of Digital Thread and Production Process Managment™ concepts include:
  1. Data Continuity: Ensure that relevant data and information are accessible at all stages, eliminating the need to recreate or duplicate data. This leads to more accurate and efficient decision-making, as stakeholders have access to a single source of truth.
  2. Interconnectivity: Different systems and software applications are connected to enable the smooth flow of information. This includes design software and PLM data, ERP information exchange, value chain data sources, simulation tools, manufacturing equipment, quality control systems, and more.
  3. Traceability: The information managed by the processes provides a traceable record of changes, decisions, and actions taken throughout the lifecycle. This can be crucial for quality assurance, compliance, and accountability.
  4. Real-time Updates: Information is updated in real time, allowing stakeholders to have the most up-to-date insights into the status of a product or process. This is particularly important in scenarios where rapid decision-making is required.
  5. Collaboration: Accessibility promotes collaboration among different teams and departments, as everyone can access and contribute to the same set of data. This can lead to improved innovation and problem-solving.
  6. Lifecycle Optimization: With a comprehensive view of the entire lifecycle, organizations can identify opportunities for optimization and efficiency improvements.
  7. Digital Twin Integration: Digital Thread often complements the concept of the “digital twin,” which is a virtual representation of a physical asset or process. The Digital Thread provides the data and context needed to maintain an accurate and updated digital twin.
