Consumers alert to trends rather than traditional beer drinkers: breweries have to adapt to a changing market that is also being served by an increasing number of new providers. To survive and succeed, breweries need to expand their portfolios both cost-efficiently and in line with the highest quality standards. Digitalization plays a key role in this process. It gives them the tools to be able to respond quickly, flexibly and cost-efficiently to current market demands, with no loss of quality. Digitalization makes the flood of data in breweries transparent and easy to follow: from stock receipt to shipping, from the brewing vat to management, and from product development to the glass.
The digital twin is the precise virtual model of a product or a production plant. It displays their development throughout the entire lifecycle and allows operators to predict behavior, optimizing performance, and implement insights from previous design and production experiences.
Our comprehensive concept of the digital twin consists of three forms: the digital twin of the product, the digital twin of production, and the digital twin of the performance of both product and production. Thanks to our comprehensive domain expertise and optimized tools, Siemens is the only company that offers this holistic approach.
There is tremendous value gained from performing "what if" scenarios and predicting future performance with the digital twin. The ultimate goal of the digital twin is in the closed-loop connection between the virtual world of product development and production planning with the physical world of production system and product performance. Through this connection actionable insight is gained from the physical world for informed decisions throughout the lifecycle of products and production operations.
The Digital Enterprise enables manufacturing companies to streamline and digitalize their entire business process, seamlessly integrating suppliers into the mix. They can begin at any point of their value chain, from product design to service, and can extend digitalization gradually, depending on their current needs.
Siemens offers services that increase the availability and efficiency of brewery plants. Various services improve the system transparency and help to detect defects on electrical and mechanical components before they occur. They help to reduce energy and maintenance costs – you can schedule maintenance at the right time within the production cycle.
How can companies ensure complete traceability and quality assurance, from the origin of resources to their customers? The answer is called blockchain – a revolutionary technology that provides the security you need to build trust. Gain transparency and traceability with Siemens Blockchain running on MindSphere.
