digital thread manufacturingToday’s manufacturers are faced with new realities in marketplace demands and regulatory requirements. To put it simply, the old ways of doing things are not cutting it anymore. The cost of relying on disparate, disconnected systems and technology, point solutions, and suboptimal processes for Manufacturing Operations Management (MOM) has become too burdensome for many companies to effectively compete in a rapidly evolving business climate.

Where once the status quo, this strategy of legacy systems is getting systematically and surely cast aside as trends like mobility, cloud, and big data, combined with a centralized IT architecture are extending the capabilities of information flow and data contextualization across the enterprise. This “Digital Thread” can greatly increase a company’s aptitude in the full spectrum of operational goals and objectives. You just need to know where to start.

Regardless of your goals or industry, every business can find benefits in end-to-end data integration: quicker, more accurate, and reliable information, increased collaboration, and better tools to align operational and enterprise goals.
