Digital Thread

Components

This course is part of a Specialization (series of courses) called Digital Manufacturing & Design Technology .

This course will help you recognize how the "digital thread" is the backbone of the digital manufacturing and design (DM&D;) transformation, turning manufacturing processes from paper-based to digital-based. You will have a working understanding of the digital thread – the stream that starts at product concept and continues to accumulate information and data throughout the product’s life cycle – and identify opportunities to leverage it.

Gain an understanding of how "the right information, in the right place, at the right time" should flow. This is one of the keys to unlocking the potential of a digital design process. Acknowledging this will enable you to be more involved in a product’s development cycle, and to help a company become more flexible.

Main concepts of this course will be delivered through lectures, readings, discussions and various videos.

This is the second course in the Digital Manufacturing & Design Technology specialization that explores the many facets of manufacturing’s “Fourth Revolution,” aka Industry 4.0, and features a culminating project involving creation of a roadmap to achieve a self-established DMD-related professional goal.

predix architecture does in one review

Amazing Exactly the right amount of information, quite current in this increasingly evolving domain The link of Youtbue video of Predix Architecture doesn't work.

better precision than in one review

Basically, the course emphasizes the importance of digitizing and quantifying our data and models so that we can make well informed decisions with much better precision than randomly guessing.

beyond open-ended questions in one review

This course are pure lectures, no practice beyond open-ended questions.
