The ultimate objective of this activity is Completion, the extent to which all desired characteristics of the digital thread have been realized. As a metric, Completion is strongly correlated with project Schedule, but it is also an indicator of project Risk. Completed segments of the digital thread represent a reduced technical risk of unexpected problems

The consideration of complexity concerning digital threads is a matter of both good and bad news. The literature on digital complexity metrics is rich with detailed algorithms for graphs and software code, many already available in Python and Gremlin libraries applicable to our demonstration example. On the other hand, the relevance of these to project

While this blog series focuses on the general concept of critical metrics for digital threads, we will illustrate these with actual examples. Commercial and open-source tools are available now to put these ideas into practice. For our example, we need a set of Data Sources, a Data Consumer to calculate and display the critical metrics,
