Make optimal use of simulation

Fully exploiting the potentials of the digital twin with simulation

Combine simulation and the digital twin alone the entire value chain to test and optimize machines, production cells, and production lines in virtual environments before you build and use them in the real world.

Simulation that’s seamlessly integrated in automation

Siemens’ simulation for automation is your ideal gateway to the digital transformation. Thanks to this modular portfolio, companies can approach simulation step by step, focus on the areas that are most important for them, and benefit right from the start. Simulation provides the optimal basis for cross-discipline cooperation between mechanical, electrical, and automation engineering. Seamless integration of the hardware and software offering from the Digital Enterprise portfolio, openness, and the ongoing addition of new functions guarantee an investment that will remain viable into the future. With our comprehensive digitalization approach and service concept, we support you throughout the entire transformation process.
