Manufacturing companies use systems to define, create and store product-related information. Yet, when it’s time to share that product data with downstream teams to create bills of materials, many organizations rely on manual processes that slow productivity, hinder operations management and put intellectual property at risk.
Digital Thread for PLM helps organizations build a digital thread across the full value chain, integrating with primary systems such as SAP, Maximo and Microsoft 365 to securely connect up-to-date product content and data with business processes whenever and wherever needed.
Connect released PLM information with key applications to enhance collaboration across digital threads and accelerate manufacturing processes.
Allow stakeholders to access the most relevant released product information, and seamlessly synchronize change requests and problem reports between PLM and other systems.
Leverage preconfigured connectivity with enterprise applications, such as ERP, MES and MRO, to significantly accelerate deployments.
Create a centralized source of truth for released product data to reduce defects caused by incorrect information during manufacturing.
Facilitate collaboration between multiple PLM systems and other enterprises across subsidiaries and their supply chains.
Leverage application programming interface capabilities for consistent collaboration and to avoid the costs of inevitable technology and business changes.
Spend less time searching systems for product-relevant information and more time running manufacturing, supply and customer servicing processes.
Downstream operations rely on released product design information stored in the PLM system. Collecting this information manually wastes time and risks human error. Automate access to streamline collaboration.
Manufacturing functions need PLM information to complete critical processes. License restrictions limit access, resulting in time-consuming, error-prone information requests. Enable appropriate access to accelerate workflows.
