About the Course

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. To learn more about the Digital Manufacturing and Design Technology specialization, please watch the overview video by copying and pasting the following link into your web browser: https://youtu.be/wETK1O9c-CA...

A lot of the reference reading and supplemental video material is quite dated (2016 and earlier), and some videos on YouTube are no longer available. A decent overall introduction to the basics of the digital thread

The video links for predix architecture and the video link in the subsequent quiz are to private or deleted videos.

Please look into it and fix the problem.

I think the videos and the course, in particular, should go in-depth in explaining more complex and obscure terminologies.

This course is just definitions. I will finish the course, but I do not recommend it for someone who needs a technical approach. I was expecting a few more technical examples or exercises (mixed with their accompanying definitions). This course are pure lectures, no practice beyond open-ended questions. I wish it was a blend of lectures and practice. and not so purely academic.
