TIA grows by integrating cutting-edge technologies

TIA Integration³ – Integration of future technologies

Our Totally Integrated Automation (TIA) portfolio is constantly being expanded to include innovative technologies and solutions. For example, artificial intelligence, autonomous systems, blockchain, cognitive engineering or 5G are already being thought into TIA today and integrated step by step. This is a plus for companies to be future-proof for existing and upcoming challenges.

Current interest theme: AI

Get even more out of automation with artificial intelligence

Data-driven process optimization is becoming increasingly important for machine builders and plant operators. Due to the increasing use of intelligent system components that are able to produce own data, the requirement to make use of this information in order to derive measures from them is also increasing.

Artificial intelligence in the SIMATIC

Our approach to this challenge is a constantly growing, perfectly coordinated range of AI-enabled hardware and software portfolio in which innovations are integrated step by step. With the new S7-1500 TM NPU (Neural Processing Unit) we provide a module that integrates seamlessly into the automation system and helps to implement image-based AI solutions, for example.

There has been a substantial increase in our customers’ desire for self-optimizing plants. We have responded, and can now offer solutions that will make this possible in the right way for industry.

White paper: Reimagining factory automation

Reimagining factory automation

Factory automation has played a pivotal role in the evolution of manufacturing from the early days of manual control through relays and switches to the advanced digital platforms that are seen today. Increasing productivity, achieving mass production, and improving efficiencies have been a perennial quest for manufacturers and have been catalysts for advancements in automation.


Increase creativity by thinking outside the box

Here at Siemens, we firmly believe working together is crucial if we want to make real progress. That’s why we introduced “InnoThursday,” which is designed to increase creativity and openness in a constructive atmosphere. Not only do we want to integrate new technologies step by step, but also to discover new methods of working together, test them out, and turn them into new standards.
Co-working and co-creation in workshops

How “Thinking outside the box” workshops work

In a blog post, Martin Raab from Siemens Digital Industries presents the idea behind the creative workshops on “InnoThursday.” The plan is to work with customers to develop new ideas and concepts to help overcome urgent problems. The prerequisites for sudden brainwaves are creative environments and tools, and the ability to deal with each other on less formal terms – the focus must be on open interaction.
