In our example, the Linksphere Linked Data Layer (Knowledge Graph) visualizes the effects of changes at an early stage and thus prevents costly or time-consuming incorrect decision-making, such as the use of unfavorable component alternatives. The origin of any problems in production or operation can be identified by the comprehensive documentation of a product history over its entire product lifecycle. In this way, applicable industry standards can be met more easily and the demand for information can be satisfied with ease.
Further Use Cases / Applications
- Impact Analysis
- Coverage Analysis
- Project Status Analysis
- Reuse of Product Components
- Risk Management
Additional Example: Use of Spare Parts
To ensure the required material flow, larger quantities of replenishment are already ordered in production. However, the engineering department is in the process of replacing these components with alternatives.
With the help of a Knowledge Graph, both domains can be linked. Changes in the value chain are thus propagated throughout the company at an early stage and cost-intensive false decisions are avoided.
