Behind the production of a single piece of aircraft landing-gear

Sara from MIT Sloan Management Review writes: "Our new (and free) eight-part documentary video series examines a revolutionary new manufacturing approach — the digital thread."

The illuminating series follows a critical piece of an aircraft's landing gear along its own digital thread — from initial design to deployment. Viewers discover that this groundbreaking approach has the power to revolutionize design, production, and the supply chain — and has ramifications that will cross industry, organizational function, and individual roles within organizations.

Starting now, a new short episode will be released each weekday through March 9. The videos are each three to five minutes in length, and make the tech concepts accessible to a general audience.
