Live Webinar: Weaving Your Organization’s Digital Thread

The Digital Thread

Event 1.png

The concept of the “digital thread” is gaining traction—the idea of connecting assets such as parts, CAD models, documents, process plans and service manuals throughout an organization. However, legacy PDM suites can make it impossible to create and maintain a digital thread, due to their fragmented architecture. 

A good product lifecycle management (PLM) platform can create an enterprise-wide, fully-integrated and connected product development environment. Aras is one PLM platform that could weave the digital thread by connecting digital assets, enterprise systems, controls access and configuration rules for persistent data in the long term. 

In this webinar, John Sperling, Aras VP of Product Management, will demonstrate how the digital thread can be used to connect the following in your organization: 

  • Systems Engineering
  • Mechanical, electronic, & software designs
  • Manufacturing
  • Quality
