"I'm delighted that we'll be stepping up what is already a long-standing association built on mutual trust and creating a new technology partnership," said Eckard Eberle, CEO of the Process Automation (PD PA) Business Unit and Director of the Siemens booth at the Achema 2018. "This partnership also underpins Siemens' digitalization strategy surrounding the Digital Enterprise for the process industries." Dr. Wilhelm Otten, Head of Process Technology and Engineering at Evonik Technology & Infrastructure GmbH, confirmed: "We see Siemens as the ideal partner to provide us worldwide with technological and application support in mapping out our data model."
The application Siemens and Evonik will be developing jointly will be based on the Comos engineering platform and will use the complete Evonik data model, which covers all the necessary functional features and the corresponding data scope. This also includes interfaces for the input of data generated by upstream process simulations or other process development steps, meaning that as an engineering platform, Comos offers all the possibilities required to successfully map the consistency, flexibility and functionality required for the data model. Consistency is ensured in Comos by the software's object orientation, whereby an object is defined as any graphical or data-related description of a plant component. Any associated data sheets, lists or other documents are directly linked to the relevant object. The flexibility offered by Comos is due to its open system architecture, which allows Comos to be adapted to specific customer requirements and linked to third-party systems.
