MESA Smart Manufacturing Community: Digital Twin/Digital Thread - Building Blocks of the Digital Thread: Are they all product-centric?

Wednesday, October 20, 2021 (11:00 AM - 12:00 PM) (EDT)


Come share your experiences, stories, questions, and what you have learned in a safe, non-commercial environment. We seek to understand the state-of-the market, understand what companies have done that has or has not worked, documenting questions that MESA and the community can help answer. Overall, the goal is to accelerate each participant’s learning and progress toward Smart Manufacturing. 

Topic: Building Blocks of the Digital Thread: Are they all product-centric?

  • Growing up in A&D, Digital Thread was all about the product and its lifecycle
  • Tech-Clarity posits Seven Building Blocks of Digital Thread - Managing Engineering info, BOMs, Configuration and DMU, Production Planning, Parts and Supplier management, Traceability and closed-loop quality, Enterprise change, Secure collaboration
