Abstract

In the world of high-value manufacturing, an imperative forproductivity and quality are driving the manufacturingcommunity towards integration of all information capturedabout a product along the manufacturing value chain, from itsdesign and manufacture through usage, maintenance, anddecommissioning. Much of this information is alreadycaptured, but it is scattered across many organizations, withsignificant variation among levels of security consciousnessand information technology sophistication. Any weak link inthis chain of organizations constitutes a threat that can have amajor negative impact for organizations all along the chain. In this paper, we explain the reasons for the move towardsintegration of information about high-value manufacturedproducts. We introduce the concept of a digital thread, whichis the entre set of information about the life history of amanufactured object. We outline several key threats to digitalthreads that have not been fully addressed in previous work onsecuring provenance information, and propose digital-threadsas-a-service (DTaaS) as a potential way to mitigate several ofthe open issues.
