About the Course

There are opportunities throughout the design process of any product to make significant changes, and ultimately impact the future of manufacturing, by embracing the digital thread. In this course, you will dig into the transformation taking place in how products are designed and manufactured throughout the world. It is the second of two courses that focuses on the "digital thread" – the stream that starts at the creation of a product concept and continues to accumulate information and data throughout the product life cycle. Hear about the realities of implementing the digital thread, directly from someone responsible for making it happen at a company. Learn how the digital thread can fit into product development processes in an office, on a shop floor, and even across an enterprise. Be prepared to talk about the benefits, and limitations, of enacting it. Main concepts of this course will be delivered through lectures, readings, discussions and various videos. This is the third 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.

After having completed the Digital Thread transformations, framework, components and strategies in the first two courses, I was pleased with the opportunity for exploring the transformation taking place in how products are designed and manufactured throughout the world integrates with the digital thread tactical implementation addressed in the third course, providing closed loop. I look forward to even more depth and breadth of applications in the real world with opportunity to continue building my 4.0 Roadmap to Success in Digital Manufacturing and Design Technology.

For a Manufacturing Scan project to be well implemented it is essential to understand the components of Cyber Infrastructure, the main technologies used and how to bring all this to the shop floor. This course introduces all of these components and teaches you how to implement them.

I found the Digital Thread: Implementation course to be a good survey course of many topics that need to be understood to implement the digital thread. It gives you an idea of what the issues are, what the benefits are, and a great set of resources on where to dig deeper.
