Investing in a Manufacturing Execution System (MES) is often justified as part of an Industry 4.0 strategy. Yet, disconnected operations can block much of the potential for improved performance. A digital thread can overcome this challenge by establishing digital continuity across the entire product lifecycle – from cradle to grave. 


Watch this educational webinar to hear Jan Snoeij, President and Sr. Business Consultant at the MOM Institute, explain how a digital thread should be the backbone of any digital transformation program. He shares how a digital twin, first created in product design, can be extended to production and sustainment systems to drive higher operational performance, collaboration, and profitability. 


What you can expect to learn:

  • What is a digital thread and why is it now important?
  • Why become a model-based enterprise?
  • What are the challenges of deployment?
  • Who owns a digital thread, and can it be shared?
  • How does a digital thread impact my Industry 4.0 strategy?


Who should attend:

  • Chief Digital Officers
  • Chief Information Officers
  • IT Operations Stakeholders (Infrastructure, Operations, Security leads)
  • Vice Presidents and Directors of Manufacturing Operations, Quality Management
  • Business stakeholders (Production, Supply Chain, Quality)
