Manufacturing in a World of Pervasive Data

The GE Brilliant Factory vision is based on creating a "digital thread," a data supply chain that runs from a product's conception through design, to the field and back again (for repair, recycling or remanufacturing) in a closed-loop process. "The biggest challenge in connecting to the digital thread is culture," said Paul Boris, CIO ‒ advanced manufacturing strategy at GE. "People need to think differently about these approaches and how you can drive progress from the middle, even if you're not the CEO of your organization."
