Course: Foundational Principles for Optimizing the Digital Thread & Digital Twin

Onsite Duration: 3 days 
Online IpX LMS Duration: Within 60 days


Successful implementation of the IpX CM2 Baseline and Closed-Loop change process is a prerequisite to achieving the end-to-end configuration traceability driven by the needs of the model-based design and the digitalization of the enterprise.

When companies realize the value of elevating configuration management out from the shadow of engineering, they begin to see the real benefit of connected systems that are promised by technology but never achieved by technology alone. The underlying theme remains the same: improve the ability to accommodate change and keep requirements clear, concise and valid. 
The Digital Thread refers to the processes and tools used for communicating data through a connected flow of an asset’s datasets throughout a product‘s lifecycle including: Concept, Design, Production, Service and Decommissioning, utilizing a complete digital data structure and a closed-loop change process. The CM2 Model further expands on this definition to ensure that we consistently provide “the right information, to the right individuals, in the right place, at the right time,” so that proper decisions can be made.
The Digital Twin is the data and intelligence that represent the structure and interrelated conditions of a physical item of any type at any point in its lifecycle. Its purpose is to understand the previous and current complete datasets that provide the information to understand past and present operations and make predictions about the future state of an item. These are very powerful digital datasets that can be used to optimize the physical item, significantly improving operational performance and enterprise business processes.
