PLM and Digital Thread – PLM as the basis for Digital Thread

“Connected Parts, Connected Knowledge”:
Use PLM Software to Drive the Digital Thread

Imagine a puzzle game with 1000 pieces. Every part is important and contributes to the bigger picture. But what happens when these parts are not connected to each other? Then all you have is a box full of colorful fragments with no clear pattern or goal. The situation is similar in companies when managing product-relevant data: without
the appropriate technology to integrate these applications, your important information remains like disconnected puzzle pieces – valuable but confusing. Discover how more connected parts mean more connected knowledge with Revalize’s PRO.FILE PLM software in our blog!

In this context, PLM software (Product Lifecycle Management Software) can be used as the technical basis for the digital thread and for integrating applications. One such system is PRO. FILE, a trademark of Revalize. It enables product-relevant data and documents to be linked to create a digital information connection between all components – regardless of whether they come from the mechanical, electronic or software sectors.

Discover the opportunities of the continuous information chain

A consistent information chain helps to optimize processes and identify bottlenecks. This means that in the event of a complaint, the affected part can be identified immediately and the necessary flow of information can be initiated. Although there is a relationship between the customer and the purchased part in the CRM system, only sales or customer support usually benefit from this, while designers do not find out where recurring
problems occur.

But what happens when this connection is established automatically via the PLM system ? It triggers an information chain that makes it possible to react proactively to defects in order to solve possible problems in advance before they have an impact on support or service.

In times of increasing digitalization, it is crucial that all information is seamlessly connected to each other in order to be able to present a clear digital thread. By implementing a PLM system like PRO. FILE can help your company increase its efficiency by satisfying your customers better than was previously possible. This ultimately leads to greater competitiveness.

Conclusion
