Digitalization of the entire value chain
The Digital Enterprise enables companies of every sector to integrate and digitalize their business processes. Siemens’ holistic approach comprises offerings for product design, production planning or process and plant design, and production engineering or engineering and commissioning. It also includes automation, production or operation, and services.
Suppliers and logistics can also be integrated, based on a consistent collaboration platform. Companies can start with digitalization at any step of their value chain, for greenfield and brownfield plants, and based on standardized and open interfaces.
Allow us to bring you through this digital trandformation journey at ITAP 2019. Book yourself on one of our daily Guided Booth Tours!
Process optimization through Digital Twin over the entire lifecycle
The Digital Enterprise is built around the automatic bi-directional data exchange between automation system and the digital twin in engineering system. Thus, we help reduce time to market, increase flexibility, quality, efficiency and create competitive value.
With MindSphere, we furthermore enable our customers to connect their machines and physical infrastructure to the digital world and exploit the advantages of cloud-based data analysis and process optimization. Based on the customer example of DULUX, the first Digital Paint Plant, Siemens demonstrates how we have already implemented use cases from integrated engineering to integrated operations.
The production of the future will optimize itself continuously
New technologies determine the future of automation. Digitalization opens up undreamed-of potentials to raise productivity, but also will increase complexity. To handle this complexity in a digital enterprise it’s crucial to utilize the best of automation, digitalization and IT technologies.
Siemens links the latest technology, including artificial intelligence (AI), augmented reality (AR), the industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) and digital twins with our deep automation know-how in all industries where we do business. Our mission is to give holistic answers for digital enterprises that will redefine automation and provide valuable applications to the manufacturing industry.
These applications will change the way, products come to life, how they will be produced and how they evolve. Autonomous cyber-physical systems will enable a model-based engineering in a closed loop from the product design to production including feedback from the products’ lifecycle itself. Engineering efforts will further go down to a minimum. In addition, use cases based on new IT technology, like edge computing or augmented reality will boost productivity to a new level.

Advance Manufacturing Transformation Center (AMTC) – The Future is 3D!
Siemens provides market-leading industrial software solutions to fully digitalize production facilities with a specific niche in Additive Manufacturing (AM): from design and engineering software to cutting-edge simulation tools and full machine and shop-floor automation, aimed at machine builders and users. No other company can offer such a comprehensive portfolio for creating a seamless digital chain, from the initial design to post-processing for any part.
In order to make these technologies visible and accessible in Singapore, Siemens will be opening the AMTC in early 2020. It will showcase state-of-the-art Siemens Digital Enterprise solutions that will enable companies to create a digital twin model to simulate and evaluate its potential advance manufacturing operations in a virtual environment before the actual transition and transformation.
The Center will house Siemens’ first Additive Manufacturing Experience Center (AMEC) outside of Germany, where companies can experience an advance end-to-end additive manufacturing production line with our technology partners.
Additionally, companies will be able to carry out prototyping and low volume production with the support of our on-site AM experts, enabling a smooth transition and transformation to in-house advance manufacturing.

TIA Portal V15.1
With the new version of the Totally Integrated Automation Portal (TIA Portal) V15.1, Siemens is extending its engineering framework to include a range of new practical digitalization functions to shorten engineering times. The main features of the innovations are extension of the application possibilities, expansion of the digitalization portfolio, standardization and higher engineering efficiency:
- Applications enhanced with high-level language programming, integration of additional drive systems and handling functions
- Widening of the digitalization portfolio to include OPC UA functionalities and virtual commissioning
- Standardization and higher engineering efficiency with teamwork, as well as expanded diagnostics of machines and systems
Virtual Commissioning for Machine Builders
Machine development is usually sequential: Mechanical design, electrical design, and automation are performed one after the other. If a mistake is made anywhere in the development process and isn’t detected, the error costs grow by a factor of ten per phase of development. Undetected errors can cause expensive damage during commissioning. If the machine is in operation and requires optimizing or modernizing, the ideal moment for downtime has to be found – naturally, the operator wants to keep downtimes to a minimum.
The alternative is to virtually commission a machine in the TIA Portal. Based on a digital twin of the new machine, the mechanical design, electrical design, and automation engineering can be performed in parallel. Simulations and tests uncover faults at an early stage, with the result that real commissioning on site at the customer’s is performed faster and with less risk. This enables you to reduce the time to market, lower costs, and increase flexibility and productivity.
Commissioning a machine at a customer’s facility is the decisive moment: Are extensive corrections needed, or does everything go as planned? To reduce the risk and effort associated with the actual commissioning, virtually commissioning the machine using PLCSIM Advanced in the TIA Portal offers an efficient alternative. This approach even makes it possible to simulate and optimize the interaction between individual components of entire production lines in a virtual environment.
