Abstract
The ability to align Digital Threads (DT) to Digital Twins (DTw) is a critical component required to achieve reduction in total ownership cost of current and future Air Force (AF) programs. The connecting of the DT to the DTw is a key requirement to achieve model-based system engineering. One can view the connection between DT and DTw as the ability to develop robust models of the real-world system (represented by the vast amount of data collected) that represent the interactions and dependencies across complex systems. Digital Thread Modeling Environment (DTME) uses a model-based approach to identifying dependencies and vulnerabilities among system components. This capability is vital for DT/DTw to identify starting points for analysis when performing root cause analysis on component anomalies as well as when there are deviations in the digital twin with respect to the real-world, data driven digital thread. This innovative approach is applied to the creation of digital threads that will interact with Digital twins to seamlessly exchange information across complex Air Force systems. This will facilitate systems engineering what-if scenarios in the digital twin to fully understand the operational digital thread data and perform analysis of alternatives. The ability to quickly understand which digital twin
