Leveraging the Digital Thread Based on ThingWorx and ThingWorx PLM Connectors

On-Demand Webinar

About this webinar

Leverage-Digital-Thread-with-ThingWorxCompanies across different industries are forced to work with heterogeneous engineering infrastructures. As PLM information is typically distributed across multiple management systems, how do you manage distributed data effectively? Determining the actual and consistent view on the product status is both time-consuming and circuitous. Accessing all needed PLM information at any stage of your product development process is essential for the creation of digital twins. ThingWorx is a great framework to link and to manage engineering information. This presentation outlines how PROSTEP PLM ThingWorx Connectors easily access and link PLM information in a role-based ThingWorx engineering cockpit. As a result, the customer is able to analyze the federated information in an efficient way. This opens a new potential for virtualization, end-to-end data integration, and mining in order to improve the digital thread efficiency. The presentation is based on a customer project experience.

What You’ll Learn

  • Understand how to manage distributed data across information silos
  • Discover how PROSTEP PLM ThingWorx Connectors can link your information throughout product life cycle development
  • Learn how using OpenPDM from PROSTEP can be suited and tailored for end-to-end integration to improve digital thread communication
