- Digitalizing and structuring organizational knowledge through knowledge graphs
- Building towards enriched and contextualized IoT-data service provision and AI-leveraged user self-service experience through chatbots
- Transforming today’s customer service processes and democratizing accessibility of organizational knowledge
In times of digital transformation, servicing drive systems with fully enabled access to all related data becomes a critical capability for ensured customer satisfaction and efficient business processes. One of the key levers to accomplish this resides in the transactional availability and exploitability of organizational knowledge in any form over their product-lifecycle of drive systems to facilitate collaboration, answer technical or commercial questions, expedite evidence-based decisions and back-up triggered operational activities.
- Unlocking digital model data along the product lifecycle for drive systems
- Accessing CAD data in web, Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality
- Combining IIoT with visual computing for design collaboration and troubleshooting
Drive systems are core assets in industrial processes. Key aspects of the structural design and functionality are reflected in digital twins. Visualizing digital model data along the product lifecycle of a drive system is key in operational tasks from collaboration in design to remote service or troubleshooting. Moreover, the introduction of augmented reality and virtual reality in the industrial domain yields the potential to become a productivity driver for the human interaction with data.
- Integration of cutting-edge technologies into the Digital Enterprise portfolio enables flexible and intelligent production
With its Digital Enterprise, Siemens is taking the next step of the digital transformation – on the way to highly flexible modular production. Siemens presents numerous innovations for the discrete and process industries as well as for energy and building infrastructure. The integration of cutting-edge technologies such as edge and cloud computing, artificial intelligence or additive manufacturing into the portfolio offers users new opportunities to achieve more flexible and intelligent production. Communicative networking through Industrial 5G plays a key role.
- Booth slogan: "Digital Enterprise – Implement now"
- The time for implementation has arrived: Focus on industry solutions
- Practical examples and applications demonstrate competitive advantages gained by merging the virtual and real worlds
- MindSphere-Version 3.0 on Amazon Web Services (AWS)
At the Hannover Messe 2018, Siemens will be showcasing a comprehensive series of examples which demonstrate how users can harness the potential of Industrie 4.0 by implementing Digital Enterprise solutions. The focus of the 3,500-square meter booth in Hall 9 is on industry-specific implementation of Digital Enterprise solutions over the whole life cycle. Examples from aerospace, automotive, food and beverage, electronics and machine building as well as the chemical, fiber and oil and gas industries illustrate how companies of any size and from any industry can increase their competitiveness with individual digital solutions – through greater flexibility, efficiency and quality as well as shorter times to market. MindSphere Version 3, concrete use cases and references from Siemens and partners such as OEMs as well as the new global user organization MindSphere World will all be presented in the 700-square meter MindSphere Lounge. Siemens will also be demonstrating how producers can already benefit now from industrialized additive manufacturing, and showcasing Sidrive IQ, the new digital platform for the MindSphere-based evaluation of drive data. Also featured on the Siemens booth will be integrated solutions for industrial enterprises and infrastructure projects in the power utility sector, with the focus on smart energy management using MindApps.
- New MindSphere Version 3.0 on Amazon Web Services (AWS) provides access to Siemens APIs and AWS cloud services for faster development
- Simotics IQ: New IoT concept for motors
- New partnership financing service to boost the implementation of Industrie 4.0
- Study affirms annual productivity increase due to digitalization of up to 9.8 percent
Increasing demands by consumers for individual, high-quality products at favorable prices are posing new challenges for industrial enterprises which can only be resolved by digitalization. "With the Digital Enterprise portfolio, the technical conditions have been created for Industrie 4.0. To ensure successful implementation of Industrie 4.0, what we now need is an extended model for cooperative partnership based on mutual respect: Large-scale corporations supply platforms and components, medium-sized enterprises develop their own solutions and business models on this basis, and end customers integrate these into their digital value chain," explained Klaus Helmrich, Member of the Managing Board of Siemens AG at the SPS IPC Drives. Siemens will be showcasing a range of innovations at the show designed to shorten the time to market and to improve flexibility, efficiency and quality in the process and manufacturing industries. They range from the new Version 15 of the Engineering Framework TIA Portal through the IoT concept for motors Simotics IQ to the new Version 3.0 of the open cloud-based IoT operating system MindSphere. Siemens is also offering financing services such as pay-per-use models designed to simplify the implementation of digital solutions, aimed in particular at medium-sized enterprises.
