Industry 5.0

What drives the industry, drives us – we make it happen!

The digital transformation is picking up speed. Over the entire lifecycle of your plant, data and the digital twin play a decisive role to take advantage of the benefits and potential of Industry 5.0 in the chemical sector with its specific challenges. If all available data are collected and correctly correlated, they form the basis necessary for decisions and interventions at the operational level for the next steps toward digitalization of the chemical industry. When IoT and artificial intelligence merge smoothly, they can react quicker and more flexibly to dynamic market changes and shifts in customer needs. At the same time, we always keep an eye on investment protection and total cost of ownership with individualized and sustainable solutions: 

  • A smarter plant start, faster engineering and commissioning.
  • High productivity and uptime, safe and flexible production but also sustainability and security over long plant lifecycles to optimize your operations further and further.
  • Maximizing asset uptime, also by using big data analytics and artificial intelligence.
We make it happen!

Digital solutions for the chemical industry

For the chemical industry, we want to drive forward the digital transformation by integrating automation, software and future technologies. Based on our Digital Enterprise portfolio, we work with you to develop optimal digital solutions for your plant. We merge the virtual with the real world and accompany you on the way to your goals of digitalization in the chemical industry.  

Transparency down to the field level

The groundwork for sustainable growth must be laid now. The digital twins of product, plant or production allow you to map and optimize the entire plant life cycle – for greenfield and brownfield plants.  

We implement this holistic and integrated approach for you with extensive industry know-how and corresponding specific tools. Simulation, analysis, development and production processes with digital twins form the basis for the digitalization of production processes in the chemical industry. Edge and cloud computing technologies and products support the optimal use of data. Depending on requirements, analysis is performed at the field level, in the control system or in the cloud.
