Portfolio

Information in real time. At any time. Everywhere.

Our intuitive apps provide valuable insights wherever you need it: Information that can be used to optimize product quality, performance, availability, and energy consumption in a targeted manner.

Depending on requirements and application, the apps are available for MindSphere or Siemens Industrial Edge. Some apps can already be used for both systems. Optionally, specially developed client apps for smartdevices facilitate access to your systems.

Cloud apps

with global access to data

Cloud apps

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 apps

for local data processing
close to machines

Edge apps

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 apps

for fast reactions
and easy interaction

Mobile apps

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.

Data visualization

Gain transparency about production processes and machines and evaluate data

Performance Insight

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 Manager

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!

Machine interaction

Interact with your machines and receive notifications

Notifier

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.

SAM – the Speech Assistant for Machines

Need the right information at the right time? Just say, “Hey SAM!”

It has never been easier to get information about your plant’s status. SAM – the Speech Assistant for Machines – collects data from different machine areas within its network and promptly answers when you say, “Hey SAM.” You can then ask the app for information about the machine’s functionality – SAM will optimize the request, analyze the data, and quickly respond.

Machine service and Maintenance

Benefit from the digital maintenance cockpit, the error and alarm logbook, and the root cause analysis

Machine Monitor

Optimal service for the global machine park

With Machine Monitor, plant engineers and plant operators can easily monitor the status of their machines that are in use around the world. Optimize the machine service based on current operating data and improve the machine´s availability.

Machine Insight

Increase transparency on machine condition

Identify issues, bottlenecks and improvement opportunities to increase machine availability and performance. Machine Insight gives you a convenient, hassle-free insight into machine states and machine diagnostics.

Data processing

Benefit from flow-based data preprocessing and run models

Flow Creator

The visual display of workflows in data processing

With Flow Creator, tailored solutions can be created quite easily for data processing and connectivity: Structure your own workflows for local data processing. Your benefits: Only a few minutes of effort – and you will have a graphical user interface which supports pre-defined functions at a single stroke.

LiveTwin

Bring your Digital Twin of your machines to life

LiveTwin allows to easily deploy Virtual Sensors, Model Predictive Controls and more, reusing models built in 1D simulation tools as SIMCENTER Amesim or Matlab Simulink utilizing data from the PLCs as well as process parameters.

Data and Device management

Manage and update your machines and handle their data

Inventory

Get a grip on your installed base

Use Inventory to scan device information and provide inventory information to other systems and tools and determine what action is needed to ensure device availability.

SIMATIC Automation Tool

Your tool for convenient commissioning and update of SIMATIC modules

With the SIMATIC Automation Tool, you ensure greater efficiency in device management. Access multiple SIMATIC components in parallel to update application code and firmware versions or retrieve diagnostic and service data from multiple devices.

Data Service

Store and structure data of connected machines

With Data Service for Industrial Edge, data from connected machines can be stored and structured. Via API interfaces, other apps on the edge device can also use the storage function and the configured machine data structure.
