Digital Thread offers the opportunity to use information generated across the product lifecycle to design the next generation of products. In this paper, we introduce a mathematical methodology that establishes the data-driven design and decision problem associated with Digital Thread. Our objectives are twofold: 1) Provide a mathematical definition of Digital Thread in the context of conceptual and preliminary design and establish a methodology for how information along the Digital Thread enters into the design problem as well how design decisions affect the Digital Thread. 2) Develop a data-driven design method that incorporates data from different sources from across the product life cycle. We illustrate aspects of our methodology through an example design of a structural fiber-steered composite component.
