Work thread collaboration empowers R&D and industrial engineering teams to speed up, track and integrate product development, company reports.
June 23, 2023
This new tool from Authentise delivers digital thread capabilities, combining communication and project management tools into a new work thread collaboration suite. Authentise Threads helps transform R&D and industrial engineering teams into innovation engines with more fluid operations, the company says.
“Despite the noise about the need to be more agile, it’s clear there’s a relative lack of software solutions available today to support R&D, industrial engineering and manufacturing to actually accomplish this,” Andre Wegner, CEO Authentise, notes. I"f the definition and simulation of product and process is digital, then there’s no reason we cannot adopt similar processes to those pioneered in software and move at digital development speeds.”
Authentise Threads sits alongside existing engineering and project management systems to provide key features such as:
- Cross-Functional Work Thread Collaboration. Create, search, follow and link shared work threads across engineering teams and partners with real-time structured communication, chat and notifications.
- Shared Information, Knowledge, Experience, Resources and Context. A shared repository of all key data, resources, goals, metrics needed for work thread execution.
- Collaborative Digital Decision Making. Formally track and manage workthread efforts, insights, actions, decisions, resolutions, and more.
- Continuous Learning and improvement. Share full history and traceability of work, discussions, issues, decisions, actions, metrics, all with full context.
“Authentise has delivered the digital thread to the world's most agile production settings,” says Authentise's Wegner. “It’s only natural that we extend this capability to help streamline R&D. Authentise Threads balances the flexibility of real-time collaboration needed to adapt to rapidly evolving challenges, with the structure needed to make engineering workflows a success. With it, Authentise is completing its vision of helping companies digitally track, power and integrate the idea-to-part process.”
