What is a Digital Thread?

Digital Thread Definition

A digital thread is a communication framework that enables a flow of data between digital and physical worlds to optimize products, people, processes, and places. Technologies such as SaaS PLM solutions create a persistent digital thread that follows a product’s entire lifecycle – from design and production to the end customer. This enables better communication and alignment across the entire value chain, resulting in increased productivity, higher quality products, and faster innovation.
