Weaving Quality into the Digital Thread

Aberdeen’s survey of 100 top executives reveals how discrete manufacturers can ensure quality in complex, innovative engineering environments.



Reduce Production Costs by Pairing Digital Thread and Quality

Quality management in the manufacturing industry is imperative. However, as engineering environments grow increasingly complex, it becomes more challenging to manage and share product data. The result is scrap and rework, field rejections, returns and allowances, and operational errors that increase production costs if left unresolved.

The key to resolving these quality-related issues is the digital thread. With a PLM-enabled digital thread, you can connect your teams and systems for seamless enterprise-wide collaboration.

However, Aberdeen’s research reveals that many companies are not integrating quality into their digital thread initiatives. In fact, only half of the survey respondents are taking advantage of automated quality and reliability management tools.
