Trust me, I'm a manufacturer - Linked data in action!
17 Oct 2019
Are you sure you’re downloading manufacturers content you can trust? Many manufacturers are failing to manage their online content (3D data-rich objects) causing products that have been discontinued to be specified and incorrect product data to be used. With one eye on the Hackett report, we need to start linking data and enabling the Golden Thread for our projects. In this session Tata Steel will carry out a LIVE demonstration of their new Design and Configuration tool. Through this tool, system component data is not held in the object, but instead accessible, via a plug-in, directly from our product database ensuring true Single Source of the Truth capability. This is not the end though, linked, structured, databases can provide a wealth of information directly to the fingertips of specifiers, contractors, clients and facility managers. Through product marking, digital twins of objects can be brought to life enable tracking data, production data, commercial data and in-use performance data to be but a click away.
