Digitalization as a driving forc for the production of the future
Overcoming interfaces, working without barriers, an industrial landscape with no media breaks: With its Digital Enterprise Platform, Siemens is providing a comprehensive range of products for the production of the future. Industry Software solutions incorporate the benefits of digitalization into the value creation stages of industrial production and create diverse synergies. A common database is available to all involved parties, everyone is always working with the most up-to-date data – and everyone can immediately contribute suggestions for improvement. This makes digitalization a driving force for the production of the future.
• Reduced time-to-market • Optimal productivity and efficiency throughout the entire product and production lifecycle • Managing the diversity of customized products • Short-term response to changing market conditions • Optimal use of resources, minimized energy consumption • Optimal product quality • Reviewed planning steps – through simulation before implementation
The digital backbone of production –today and tomorrow
With the concept of the Digital Enterprise Platform, Siemens is answering the crucial questions for the future of industrial production: How can we reduce the time-to-market? How can we restrict the consumption of resources to only what is strictly necessary? How can we keep control of energy requirements in production? How can we increase and manage the diversity? How can we produce more despite the increased complexity? The Digital Enterprise Platform combines software tools for all value processes, from the design of the product to production planning to the actual production. The use of three-dimensional virtual models and computer simulations eliminates the need for the time-consuming and cost-intensive construction of prototypes. At the same time, the integrated software platform overcomes the barriers of inconsistent data from different engineering disciplines and processes and from development locations around the world.
In focus: Optimization of the entire lifecycle
Essential productivity improvements are achieved primarily through innovative, largely software-supported work processes. With its portfolio of Industry Software, Siemens already offers important technologies to help you increase your competitiveness. The product range of the Digital Enterprise Platform lays the foundation for product design tailored to the needs of production, optimized use of resources, shorter innovation cycles, and the ability to manufacture customized products in the shortest possible time. At its core, the Digital Enterprise Platform comprises Siemens Product Lifecycle Management Software as well as Totally Integrated Automation (TIA), the open system architecture that covers the entire production process. This core permits the exchange of information between virtual product development, simulation, and production planning with engineering and the execution of actual production; it is supported by customized services along the entire value chain.
