Course: Operational Excellence Jumpstart
Virtual Duration: 2 – 8 hrs
Most organizations struggle with the ability to manage information accurately for the enterprise or throughout the product/solution
lifecycle. How to maintain the Digital Thread from the baseline to the planning bill, then from the planning bill to the order bill, and finally from the order bill to the actual as-built record is a major challenge. Knowing which requirements, at
which revision level, to use at any point in time is another. This failure creates a high level of intervention resource expenditure and an inability to track fielded configurations. This drives significant warranty, recall, and concession costs that
can have devastating impacts on the business.
Activities driven through the Digital Thread impact the Digital Twin with a constant barrage of changes making the ability to manage the Digital Twin that much more complex. How an organization identifies, structures, links and assigns ownership to
its requirements and internal processes directly affect its ability to successfully and efficiently perform the intended mission or achieve its business objectives. If this activity is ignored or done incorrectly, an organization pays severe penalties
in the form of intervention resource expenditure. Those expenditures are the unplanned time, money, and resources expended to compensate for quality and schedule problems. When quality and schedule problems dominate the energy an organization expends
on a daily basis, corrective action becomes the standard “way of working."
This course will discuss why changing that environment requires an understanding of how current processes relate to best practices and the culture change that is needed to make the transition. The course will teach application of that ability is extended
beyond design information to include all requirements for the enterprise, and the enterprise deliverables throughout all of the lifecycle phases. Keeping all of those requirements clear, concise, and valid at all times.
