Abstract

The digital thread links disparate systems across the product lifecycle to support data curation and information cultivation and enable data-driven applications, e.g., digital twin. Realizing the digital thread requires the integration of semantically-rich, open standards to facilitate the dynamic creation of context based on multiple viewpoints. This research develops such an approach to link as-planned (ISO 6983) to as-fabricated (MTConnect) product data using dynamic time warping. Applying this approach to a production part enabled the designer to make a more optimal decision from the perspective of the product lifecycle that would have otherwise been challenging to identify.
