Companies across different industries are forced to work with heterogeneous engineering infrastructures. Especially as PLM information is typically distributed across multiple management systems. Determining the actual and consistent view on the product status is both time-consuming and circuitous.
Accessing all needed PLM information at any stage of your product development process is essential for the creation of digital twins. ThingWorx is a great framework to link and to manage engineering information.
This presentation outlines how PROSTEP PLM ThingWorx Connectors easily access and link PLM information in a role-based ThingWorx engineering cockpit. As a result, the customer is able to analyze the federated information in an efficient way. This opens a new potential for virtualization, end-to-end data integration, and mining in order to improve the digital thread efficiency. The presentation is based on a customer project experience.
