Performance for your production linesThe question of how efficiently machines and systems can be monitored and controlled significantly depends on whether access to relevant data is guaranteed. This is precisely what our apps do: optimize the performance of your production lines around the world in real time. We have the right apps for every challenge in a wide range of application areas.
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.
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.
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.
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
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!
WinCC Unified Online Engineering
No-code HMI Designer for the Industrial Edge environment
With WinCC Unified Online Engineering you are able to configure full-blown HMI applications using graphical standard elements, SVG graphics or enhanced controls for trending and alarm indication, without HTML5-programming expertise. It is mandatory to use the WinCC Unified Runtime App to run the HMI application.
WinCC Unified Runtime
More than just dashboarding
The WinCC Unified Runtime offers powerful HMI functions for data acquisition, data archiving, analysis and alarming as well as a comfortable user interface for operation and monitoring.
The configuration is done with WinCC Unified Online Engineering.
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.
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.

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.
