Factory Digital Twin: How Lockheed Martin digitizes operations on manufacturing lines
Large manufacturing companies who have been around for decades tend to have many different information systems of record that have been developed over the years. Blending different sources of information together to form a coherent picture of the status of the build is a cognitively taxing activity for mechanics and supervisors on the shop floor. Factory Digital Twin is a story of how Lockheed Martin is using Neo4j and Linkurious to digitize operations on manufacturing lines critical to 21st century security.
