Sightline vs TwinThread: Which Is the Best Continuous Improvement Software?

Sightline Systems is at the forefront of real-time predictive analytics, root cause analysis, anomaly detection, and continuous improvement technology in the manufacturing space. Industrial and manufacturing operations need to take advantage of the data running through their plants and draw actionable insights from this data in a systematic, automatic, and sustainable way.

While TwinThread uses machine learning and AI in a similar fashion to Sightline EDM, their ease of use, visualizations, and digitalization outputs functions much differently than Sightline’s customizable manufacturing analytics solution.

Which Is the Best Continuous Improvement Software?

Manufacturing Analytics All Plant Operators Can Use

Sightline EDM offers incredibly accurate predictive analytics that foresee bottlenecks, slowdowns, and operational issues. This unique technology applies historical and real-time manufacturing analytics to allow insights to only become more accurate through continuous machine learning.


Be alerted instantly to anomalies within your enterprise data. Risk-based monitoring identifies anomalies that could create a problem or be a security threat. Once identified, receive instant alerts displaying the data in question and historical baselines that display the impact to your business.

Find the problem at the source within minutes, not months. Our advanced correlation engine determines the cause of a problem and the context in which it occurred. This allows you to respond quickly to the operational issue and prevent the inefficiency from ever entering your processes again.


Determine bottlenecks, when you will reach maximum capacity, and capitalize on demand spikes with automated capacity planning. Sightline EDM’s continuous improvement platform offers customizable reports that predict your ability to respond to potential problems or opportunities.


SIAS is Sightline EDM’s built-in cybersecurity solution that offers a “zero trust” approach to data. Protect your data with endpoint cloaking, cryptographic zoning, data encryption, and dynamic isolation that occurs in real time. SIAS safeguards you from attacks and aids you in responding to them quickly.

  • Software Functionality

  • A “digital twin” is a copy of your data, that is then used to interpret solutions for potential problems that arise. It learns similarly to machine learning. However, these have limited resources to rely on, and can be expensive to deploy.*

  • Dashboard Functionality

  • TwinThread offers prepackaged dashboards that allow you to manage multiple dashboards and spreadsheets in separate tabs. The convenience of being prepackaged may be outweighed by the potential for irrelevant data to be displayed.**

  • Manufacturing Analytics Solutions

  • Modeling is similar to forecasting in that it recommends paths of actions after analyzing data. However, data modeling requires construction and assigns predetermined structures to your industrial operations.***

  • Built-In Security

  • TwinThread offers data protection and alerts you to potential threats as most advanced analytics solutions do, but lacks the “zero trust” strategy. Cloud-based security is dependent on the platform being used. ****
