Manufacture consumer packed goods faster and more flexibly
Digitalization is opening up new potential for the consumer goods industry
The megatrend of customization also extends to the consumer goods industry. Demand for increasingly personalized and individualized products with extremely short delivery times and affordable prices is creating new challenges for manufacturers. Thanks to digitalization with the Digital Enterprise solution portfolio, new approaches can be adopted in product recipe formulation as well as packaging design.
The comprehensive Digital Twin in detailThe holistic approach of the Digital Enterprise for creating Digital Twins offers tangible benefits: You can substantially reduce the number of prototypes you need, predict the performance of the production unit and the products themselves, and ensure you produce what your customers expect.
The digital twin is the precise virtual model of a product or a production plant. It displays their development throughout the entire lifecycle and allows operators to predict behavior, optimizing performance, and implement insights from previous design and production experiences.
Our comprehensive concept of the digital twin consists of three forms: the digital twin of the product, the digital twin of production, and the digital twin of the performance of both product and production. Thanks to our comprehensive domain expertise and optimized tools, Siemens is the only company that offers this holistic approach.
There is tremendous value gained from performing "what if" scenarios and predicting future performance with the digital twin. The ultimate goal of the digital twin is in the closed-loop connection between the virtual world of product development and production planning with the physical world of production system and product performance. Through this connection actionable insight is gained from the physical world for informed decisions throughout the lifecycle of products and production operations.
Digital enterprises produce more flexible and with maximum qualityCompanies become digital enterprises by integrating and digitalizing the entire value chain. For every step from developing a new product through to continuously optimizing a plant, Siemens provides a coordinated portfolio of hardware and software.

The production process in detail
The Digital Enterprise enables manufacturing companies to streamline and digitalize their entire business process, seamlessly integrating suppliers into the mix. They can begin at any point of their value chain, from product design to service, and can extend digitalization gradually, depending on their current needs.
Siemens offers the right solution for each step in the production process.
Siemens services help make your consumer goods production more efficient while improving availability. They improve system transparency and help you detect defects in electrical or mechanical components before they appear. You can reduce power and maintenance costs, and plan your maintenance activities to fit in perfectly with your production cycle.
