CIMdata Digital Thread Survey

CIMdata Digital Thread Survey

The Digital Thread, in various incarnations, has been a core element of the PLM vision for decades. The concept of automated linkage of multiple representations of a product, each tuned to the needs of various creators and consumers along the lifecycle, is very powerful. Until recently, tracing these linkages has been primarily a manual process, extracting product information from various heterogeneous systems and relating them in ad hoc reports. But now, with recent advances in commercial PLM solutions, the Digital Thread, with automated linkages and traceability, has become a practical possibility, even for industries with complex products, such as aerospace & defence.

In response, leaders in the A&D industry are starting to implement targeted digital thread solutions and envision expanding these solutions upstream and downstream throughout the product lifecycle. With the newness of this approach, there is not much available in the way of lessons learned or actual value achieved. This lack of real data is a barrier to broader investment within the industry. On the other hand, solution providers lack insight into the current state and future investment drivers within the industry which is crucial to their solution strategies and roadmaps.

This research is intended to provide meaningful insight to both communities. And this survey to gather your perspective is a key component of our research. In return for your participation, you will receive a summary report of research findings and will be entered into a drawing for one of ten $100 and ten $50 Amazon gift certificates.

For this research effort, CIMdata and the Aerospace & Defense PLM Action Group are partnering, amongst other solution providers, with Eurostep. All committed to addressing the digital thread challenges of industrial companies.

Completing the survey should take 30-40 minutes of your time. Only summary statistics and charts of your responses will be provided to our sponsors and published by the CIMdata team. Respondents can request a copy of the survey results at the conclusion of the survey.

Thanks for your participation and let’s get started!

Please read and answer all of the questions.
