Depending on the requirements and application area, the apps are available for the MindSphere cloud platform or Siemens Industrial Edge System. Optionally, you can access your systems with specially developed client apps for your smartphone.
Cloud appswith global access to data
MindSphere apps for production machines and plants offer advanced insights and analytics into machines and processes independent of their location. You can increase productivity, optimize machine service, and collaborate with other factories: Benefit from global data access to implement data-driven business models for OEMs and plant operators. And the best part: You don’t need to worry about performance, as the cloud infrastructure makes resources available on demand.
Edge appsfor local data processing
close to machines
When it comes to real-time processing of high-frequency data, the Siemens Industrial Edge system reveals its full potential. Interact with your machines, manage your whole inventory, or run complex models to monitor production and processes close to the system. As the apps run on a platform architecture close or at the machines, the data stays within your production floor.
Mobile appsfor fast reactions
and easy interaction
To properly use the data, you first have to be able to access it. That’s why we’ve introduced mobile client apps that connect to a higher-level processing system, like MindSphere or Siemens Industrial Edge, allowing you to convert your smart device into a machine notification center or mobile performance monitor. Benefit from all the onboard features of your smartphone.
Site-independent analysis of machine and plant performance
Performance Insight enables you to analyze and optimize the performance of machines and plants on the basis of current operating data. Define the key performance indicators and analyze the performance and availability in clearly laid out dashboards.

Energy transparency and efficiency for plants and processes
The Energy Manager application records the energy consumption of your machines and plants distributed throughout the world. In this way, you not only achieve ISO 50001-conformant energy transparency, but you can also optimize your energy efficiency by means of a comprehensive analysis of energy costs and consumers. Access your data globally via the MindSphere Cloud – or on your local server via iOS or Android!
Fast notification on mobile devices
Convert your smartphone into a news ticker for your production: With Notifier, you are automatically notified of important messages from your plant – worldwide, via the cloud-based app or locally via your own Wi-Fi network for even faster response times. Use the feedback function to coordinate actions. Now available for Wear OS and iOS.
The digitalized solution for cause analysis
Collaboration Board helps with the documentation and resolving of problems in production by applying the methods of the Ishikawa or 5 Why cause analysis. It allows the exchange of information between various factories and helps operators and maintenance managers to increase the service life of machines and plants.
SIMATIC WinCC OA UI
The app for the SIMATIC WinCC OA SCADA system
Monitor and control your plant easily 24/7 from your smartphone with the mobile SIMATIC WinCC OA UI app. Around the clock, from any location, and securely thanks to the SSL-encrypted interface. Available for Android KitKat 5.1 or later and iOS 9 or later.
