Digitalization is transforming industry

Thinking ahead to the future of industry.

More flexible production, greater productivity, and the development of new business models are all possible today thanks to digital solutions. But the future of industry offers even more potential: Cutting-edge technologies will create new opportunities for both discrete and process industries to fulfill their customers’ individual requirements.

 

 

The Digital Enterprise solution portfolio enables industrial companies of all sizes to implement current and future technologies for the automation and digitalization. Thus, they can tap into the full potential of Industry 4.0 and get ready for the next level of their digital transformation journey.

Digital Talks 2019 – Transforming Industry Together

As UK manufacturers, large or small, process or discrete, we need to become more competitive.    Digital transformation is a journey of continuous improvement.  That’s what we’ve learned; from experience with our customers and partners. A journey in which every step you take counts; in which the outcome of each step you take determines where you go next and ultimately, your ability to compete.   At our 2019 flagship event, you can learn what these continuous improvement steps could look like for your business and value chain.

What a Digital Enterprise is made of

To help customers leverage the potentials of Industry 4.0. Siemens already offers a portfolio of solutions that comprises the core elements of the Digital Enterprise. With the scalable solutions, companies in the discrete and process industries can invest in Industrie 4.0 to become completely and comprehensively digitalized across the entire value chain.

Digital Enterprise for process industries

To optimize especially long running processes, and to boost flexibility and efficiency, the digital twin can prove very useful for process industry. It's an integrated data model that covers the entire lifecycle of a plant - it can also be created for brownfield plants.

It is essential for plants to remain stable and operate without interruption for decades, while also maintaining maximum energy efficiency. Product quality must not fluctuate at all throughout the entire plant’s service life. Simulating, testing, and optimizing processes and plants before operation in the real world, can help to ensure this.

 

Gathering and evaluating data on the fly makes it possible to constantly monitor and refine processes. Feedback from the production process and the end customers can be incorporated for further improvement. Unnecessary maintenance work and plant downtime can also be avoided thanks to predictive maintenance.

Discrete industries

Digital Enterprise for discrete industries

The Digital Enterprise Software Suite provides an integrated portfolio of Industrial Software and Automation for the discrete industry. This allows product manufacturers, machine and line builders to integrate and digitalize their entire value chain – including their suppliers.

This enables manufacturing companies to integrate and digitalize their business processes – including their suppliers. They can start at any point in their value chain, from product design to production planning, production engineering, production execution, and services, and expand the digitalization process step by step. The same goes for machine building: from the machine design to engineering, commissioning, machine operation, and services.

 

MindSphere, the cloud-based, open IoT operating system, creates a link to the Internet of Things. This means manufacturers can analyze their production facilities and products in actual use, and feed back the insights into the entire value chain for continuous optimization. Machine builders can analyze the machine performance for ongoing optimization of the machine allowing even new machine concepts.

Digital Talks Podcast Series

Our podcast series lets you hear from the best of the industry’s people, hosted by BBC Radio 2’s Tim Smith, and is full of boardroom conversation starters, as well as practical insight to help you get started on your transformation journey. 

Why become a Digital Enterprise?

Faster, more flexible, more efficient and prepared for the next step of the digital transformation: See how becoming a Digital Enterprise helps industrial companies master the challenges of today and tomorrow.

Cutting-edge technologies – the future of industry

Integrated cutting-edge technologies in the Digital Enterprise portfolio enable smart usage of data. This paves the way for the next level of the digital transformation of industry: the convergence of information technology and operational technology.

MindSphere, the cloud-based, open Internet of Things (IoT) operating system

MindSphere enables industries worldwide to link their machines and physical infrastructure to the digital world. 

 

Supporting multiple protocols concurrently, it uniquely simplifies the connectivity challenges that most industries face – making it possible for every company to become a digital enterprise. Harnessing data with MindSphere from virtually any number of connected intelligent devices, enterprise systems and federated sources allows analysis of real-time operational data. Insights gained from this analysis then leads to optimized processes, resource and productivity gains, the development of new business models, and the reduction of operations and maintenance costs.

 

MindSphere uniquely offers three packaged solutions that guide companies through the stages of IoT implementation.
