Mastering Digital Twins and Digital Threads: The Keys to Digitalization in A&D

Digital twins and digital threads are key elements of any digitalization strategy; everyone is talking about them, but few companies say what exactly they mean by the terms. John O’Connor of Siemens breaks down what digital twins and threads are, how they work, what they can do, and what makes them so vital for companies in Aerospace and Defense. Those who successfully adopt them will become strategic leaders, with effective innovation and product development, but failure to take on both digital twins and digital threads together will leave companies struggling with slow, inefficient processes.

The new digital approach can take products from the early stages of a program right through manufacture and into service. Siemens Xcelerator brings unique benefits in this field, including a variety of innovative modelling capabilities that support a complete digitalization strategy.
