The partnership between Siemens and Bilfinger provides the ideal combination of theory with practice. Through the use of Comos at Bilfinger, Siemens has access to valuable feedback about the way the engineering & maintenance platform is used, particularly by SMEs, which it can use to selectively drive forward the further development of Comos. Because of its many decades of engineering and maintenance experience and expertise in the petrochemical, pharmaceutical, chemical, oil and gas industries, Bilfinger is ideally qualified to integrate valuable knowledge into the system. "Our vision for digitalization envisages predictive maintenance as a preliminary stage to prescriptive maintenance and prescriptive analytics," summarizes Blades. As he points out, against this backdrop Comos provides ideal conditions for the market-ready development of digital innovations for the process industry.
As a plant engineering and plant management software platform, Comos encompasses the process engineering of components and plants all the way through to complete automation. By providing a consistent system landscape from engineering through to operation, Comos enhances efficiency across every phase of the plant life cycle.
