Top 5 Benefits of Digital Thread in Manufacturing

Top 5 Benefits of Digital Thread in Manufacturing

The digital revolution has dramatically changed the way we manage data and processes in manufacturing operations. As technology advances, companies are increasingly turning to the concept of a digital thread to harness this powerful potential. According to Harvard Business Review, manufacturers that are just beginning their modernization journey stand to gain the most from upgrading their data management and automation processes. In fact, it is estimated that around $1 trillion is left unclaimed each year due to a lack of digitization.
In this blog post, we’ll explore the top 5 benefits companies can enjoy when embracing the digital thread in their manufacturing industry. Before we get there, let’s look into the basics.

Artificial intelligence for Business Applications

A human-computer dialogue, with proactive context-driven intervention of AI software, leads to better joint decisions than those made separately by each of them alone. This is the basis for future trends in the development of AI products for business needs that will generate maximum business value.
The term “Artificial Intelligence” usually arouses controversy, due to the very fact of attributing such a human characteristic as intelligence to a structure made up of silicon chips. The controversy, which usually takes place between philosophers and technologists, faces difficulties from its very inception, not only because it is difficult to define ‘artificial intelligence’, but because there is also no clear and unambiguous definition of the term ‘human intelligence’.

How the labor shortage is killing Aerospace composites manufacturing and how to solve it

With a rising skills gap and an emphasis on attending university over learning a trade, the manufacturing labor shortage is not a new problem. However, it is one that the pandemic has supercharged. Post-covid workers are looking for flexibility in where and when they work and higher pays – something at odds with today’s manufacturing landscape that requires physical in-person shift work and the need to meet tight deadlines.
Supply chain issues are also compounding the productivity issues stemming from labor shortages. Suppliers are facing the same labor shortages as manufacturers. Given the aerospace industry relies on long and complex supply chains, it only takes a short delay to create significant ripple effects, slowing down production.
