Digital Enterprise for discrete industries

Siemens’ Digital Enterprise Suite is the most comprehensive portfolio of software-based systems and automation technologies for the discrete industry to master the digital transformation across the entire value chain. The results: shorter development and production times, flexible and fully automated manufacturing concepts with highest level of quality, efficiency in manufacturing processes and highest security standards.

 

At SPS IPC Drives the concept of the Digital Enterprise Suite was presented along the entire value chain of a production machine. The digital twins of product, production and performance showed how digitalization enables machine builders to build innovative machine concepts and their production.

Security concepts for verticals

Protecting productivity - with increasing digitalization, security for automation becomes more and more important. Industrial Security is a core element of the Digital Enterprise. To ensure comprehensive protection of industrial plants from internal and external cyberattacks, all levels must be protected simultaneously - plant security, network security and system integrity - supported by Industrial Security Services. The result: Increased plant availability by avoiding unauthorized accesses and data protection.

Faster time to market and higher flexibility for process industries such as chemicals

Fast reaction on changing market demands require flexible and transparent production. This can be achieved by fast commissioning, flexible production planning, intelligent manufacturing operations management and modular automation - often based on standards and standardized modules. The Digital Enterprise is built around the data exchange between engineering and operation, creating a digital twin, using integrated automation and management systems. By shortening start-up of a plant and flexible production, we help reducing time to market, increase quality, efficiency and create competitive value.
We showed how Merck and Siemens are seeking to fulfill these requirements in their efforts to develop a modular filter plant – and they are also working together to promote the agile standardization of modular production.
