Systems Thinking in Action
Systems Thinking is central to managing the ever-increasing complexities of today’s and tomorrow’s intelligent and connected products. It is applicable to all design abstractions and all lifecycle stages of a product—from early design space exploration—all the way through its manufacture and use in the field.
Digital Thread as an Enabler of Systems Thinking
All Digital Transformation initiatives—going from paper documents to well-connected digital models across the entire product lifecycle—recognize the importance of a Digital Thread which is only amplified when put in the context of Systems Thinking. Digital Thread is key to Systems Thinking since it enables traceability of the design intent, design data, and design history across all lifecycle stages.
Digital Transformation Primer
As organizations transform to leverage digital technologies, many experience barriers to entry and friction during implementation that inhibit success. Overcoming these obstacles requires a holistic approach driven by Systems Thinking. Technology is part of the solution…but true success is found by taking advantage of new techniques to achieve needed outcomes (and not simply making old processes faster).
Adopt a transformational technology to manage requirements in context with total product configuration.
Create tool-agnostic system architecture models from structures authored in external system tools and make them part of Digital Thread that links to requirements, simulation and detailed design data.
Connect simulation inputs, processes, and results while ensuring accuracy, repeatability, and access to teams across the product lifecycle.
Supports parts, multi-level bill of materials, CMII standard configuration management and change management, approved vendor and manufacturer lists, and documents.
Capturing the conversation demystifies how decisions are made. Visual Collaboration enables users to mark up and comment on items inside the system.
Manage evolving product configurations developed my multiple groups inside the organization and within the supply chain.
Capture your complete, evolving product definition and allow teams across the enterprise to follow a product’s digital history and all of its related digital assets.
