Share your digital thread story

for Your Chance to Win a $250 Amazon Gift Card

Dear Reader,

How do you define the digital thread?

The National Institute of Standards and Technology cites the digital thread as a communication framework that enables the repurposing, reuse and traceability of information throughout the lifecycle of a product.

When faced with data siloed throughout different systems, it is challenging to solve the complex integrations.

Have you already worked to implement the digital thread in your own business? ​

If so, ​we want to hear from you in the comment section below!

Please share your experiences (successful or not) with us. 
What challenges did you face when implementing the digital thread?  Why did you choose to implement the digital thread?  What were your positive and negatives experiences with the implementation process and the resulting effects on your product lifecycle?
