about the Digital Thread

Why explore?

Are you a company that develops and produces complex, highly configured products (e.g. cars, aeroplanes, commercial vehicles and machines) in a complex environment? Do you need detailed insight into the development, production and operation of these products in order to identify problems earlier and reduce overall costs in your company? Then our digital thread platform explore will help you to achieve your goal like no other system!

Cloud native, fast &

explore enables the efficient and rapid integration of a wide range of existing and new systems – regardless which providers are involved. It therefore guarantees you full flexibility, reduces costs and establishes standards.

The impact of explore on the product life cycle of our customers


faster data analytics and decision making


fewer iteration loops




user and customer satisfaction

The three essential components of explore

Our digital thread platform explore enables you to create and maintain all-encompassing digital twins by utilising your existing product, process and company data.

Icon zum Thema 'Daten'.


explore enables the efficient and fast integration of all your data, regardless of provider and format (e.g. PLM product data, change management, digital factory, 3D, CAD). All data is historicized without redundancy and allows comparisons and traceability at any time.

Icon zum Thema 'Prozesse'.


Thanks to the integrated process engine (BPMN), explore enables the automation, optimization and monitoring of all relevant business processes. This results in a reduction in waiting times and increases transparency, thus saving costs.

What convinces our customers

Icon zum Thema 'Digitale Fäden'.

Seamless representation of the digital thread

explore is the first platform that enables continuous visibility and traceability of data and processes across the entire value chain. It facilitates data-driven decision-making, improves collaboration and reduces errors and delays. This leads to optimized supply chain processes, traceability and fulfilment of compliance requirements while increasing efficiency and customer satisfaction.

Icon zum Thema '3D'.


The platform makes it possible to display changes in development directly on the digital twin. The instant 3D view, including heat maps, metadata and annotations, thus supports an unprecedented visual understanding of complex relationships. The result is efficient and effective communication between all project participants.

Time travel and
delta comparison

With explore you can save and track all changes, updates, and versions of your plans and projects. Historization makes it possible to access previous versions at any time, and changes such as costs, deadlines, weights, carbon footprint and much more can be traced in an integrated view. This enables you to use explore to quickly and efficiently identify differences between any data set. Identifying problem situations at an early stage saves you time and resources.

Minimum dependency

explore enables the efficient and rapid integration of a wide range of existing and new systems and their data — regardless of the provider. You are therefore not forced to migrate your data in at great expense. Thanks to the explore platform, you can already utilize full flexibility on a meta-level. You have the immediate opportunity to introduce new systems flexibly and using standards. Migration costs and risks are a thing of the past!

Icon zum Thema 'Schnelligkeit'.

Open APIs and fast deployment

Thanks to the open APIs, the rapid and seamless transfer of data from the explore into a wide range of other software systems and efficient sharing and processing is child's play. explore offers you maximum flexibility and customization options and can be perfectly tailored to your specific needs and preferences.
