The Siemens LivingLab Process Industries is researching the digitalization of production processes.
Digitalization is a crucial productivity lever in the process industry and strengthens companies’ competitiveness. The laboratory at the Siemens headquarters in Vienna houses an Industry 4.0 pilot facility that is one of a kind in Europe and in which visionary ideas can be tested and refined under realistic conditions. The LivingLab Vienna also showcases Austria’s strong industry and research expertise in the field of bioprocesses.
The focus is on all industries that manufacture entire batches rather than individual components, in particular the pharmaceutical industry, the food & beverage industry, and the chemical industry.
The bioprocessing laboratory is our workshop where research and application converge to create tangible competitive advantages for our customers. But the result of the work in the LivingLab is not a product: We cook up algorithms and formulas.Wolfgang Hesoun, CEO Siemens AG Österreich
Here we can simulate and optimize the process and production development of our customers. This is the only digitalization pilot facility for bioprocesses of this kind anywhere in Europe.Bernhard Kienlein, Head of the Process Industries and Drives Division in Siemens CEE
