Digital Thread

Product complexity is increasing significantly and continues to accelerate as electronics and now software dominate almost every type of product. As manufacturers gear up to meet increasing market demand for complex, connected products, they face the realization that legacy systems and processes are no longer sufficient to facilitate rapid, modern product innovation. Some of the very real challenges they face include:

  • Coordinating geographically dispersed mechanical, software and electronics/electrical teams

  • Managing the impact of multiple changes to a product design

  • Ensuring continuity and product safety when updates occur in the field

  • Maintaining compliance with an ever-increasing maze of regulations

The foundation for meeting these challenges requires a modern, platform-based approach that connects data, processes and systems, forming the heart of the digital thread. The Aras PLM Platform provides a methodology for maintaining connections between digital assets that works across system and geographic boundaries, controls access, respects configuration rules, and persists for years. The result is a robust digital thread connecting all aspects of your product data and turning complex designs into profitable products. Join Gary Wilmot, Aras Pre-Sales Solutions Consultant for a live demonstration of how the Aras PLM Platform enables a true digital thread in areas including:

  • Initial product definition

  • Design and process quality management

  • Change management throughout the complete product lifecycle

  • Complete traceability of the entire digital thread
