Greater flexibility on the path to more individual products
Digitalization offers new ways to personalize dairy products
The dairy sector is characterized by high cost sensitivity and mass production, while innovative packaging and a growing variety of flavors are increasingly shaping the market. To meet all general and customer requirements, digitalization is providing the dairy industry with new ways to optimize the entire value chain. Based on our extensive Digital Enterprise solution portfolio with a range of products, systems and solutions designed specifically for the dairy industry, both process and discrete workflows can be optimally coordinated. This lowers costs while maximizing quality and increasing flexibility.
The comprehensive Digital Twin in detailThe holistic approach of the Digital Enterprise for creating Digital Twins offers tangible benefits: You can substantially reduce the number of prototypes you need, predict the performance of the production unit and the products themselves, and ensure you produce what your customers expect.
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.
