The Digital Thread concept is a technological framework that helps organize data across the life span of a product--from initial design to manufacturing, operation and maintenance -- interconnecting data, modeling, and analysis to enable better decisions at all product life stages.
Digital Thread Initiative
Sinclair's Digital Thread Initiative is part of a regional collaboration to support small and medium manufacturers in the growth and development of digital transformation within Industry 4.0. Through a Department of Defense contract awarded to ARCTOS Technology Solutions, Sinclair is poised at the forefront of industry to:
Develop and implement a training program for college faculty and staff.
Engage local manufacturers in digital thread usage, from cybersecurity to supply chain.
Build a smart manufacturing learning lab.
Develop stackable systems of credentials.
Pave the pathways to increase career awareness and skill building for local students.
Develop industry informed credit and non-credit based programs.
Collaborate with the region's Manufacturing Engineering Education Programs.
Sinclair Workforce Development is pleased to announce the DIGITAL TAPESTRY SERIES is back for Season 2! Discover how the “weaving” of digital threads help organize data across the lifespan of a product to create a seamless flow of information. Topics are delivered monthly through our “Digital Thread Bytes” podcast and workshops.
