From Silo to Learning Organization
Challenges and Solutions along the Product Life Cycle
The process of creating a product is highly collaborative, requiring the contribution and interaction of multiple disciplines within engineering and manufacturing, including the involvement of the supplier network. Distribution across multiple isolated teams and tools leads to significant risk of product delays, defects, cost overruns, failed verifications and validations, recalls, etc.
In summary, the Digital Thread provides companies with a holistic view of their product data, enabling them to make informed decisions, improve collaboration, and streamline the product development process. This is especially important for companies that have an enormous amount of data: from development through design to manufacturing, including supply chain management and service history, as well as customer experience.
