Making beer manufacture more flexible and more efficient
Digitalization makes it easier to adapt quickly to new market situations
Consumers alert to trends rather than traditional beer drinkers: breweries have to adapt to a changing market that is also being served by an increasing number of new providers. To survive and succeed, breweries need to expand their portfolios both cost-efficiently and in line with the highest quality standards. Digitalization plays a key role in this process. It gives them the tools to be able to respond quickly, flexibly and cost-efficiently to current market demands, with no loss of quality. Digitalization makes the flood of data in breweries transparent and easy to follow: from stock receipt to shipping, from the brewing vat to management, and from product development to the glass.
The comprehensive Digital Twin in detailOur holistic approach 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.
