Siemens’ product lifecycle management (PLM) software business and Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) have expanded their long standing partnership to deliver a comprehensive set of plant solutions for enabling the Connected Digital Enterprise. By adding Siemens’ entire Manufacturing Operations Management (MOM) software portfolio to their agreement, TCS can now showcase the complete suite of Siemens’ software and services at the TCS Plant Solutions Center of Excellence, which was inaugurated today in Pune, India. With a full range of solutions, the facility will support proof of concepts, and illustrate how enterprise-wide digitalization is transforming the global manufacturing industry. The goal is to give customers a unique environment to build and test digital solutions using the world’s most advanced PLM and MOM software technology.
“Our new Plant Solutions Center of Excellence is part of our commitment to create exceptional value for our customers through fully integrated solutions that allow manufacturers to leverage Industry 4.0 and smart manufacturing initiatives to achieve operational excellence,” said Regu Ayyaswamy, Global Head, Engineering & Industrial Services, TCS. “Our commitment and investment in Siemens’ entire MOM portfolio is the foundation for a transformational solution that allows manufacturers to begin their Connected Digital Enterprise journey.”
TCS will participate in the Siemens MOM Expertise Alliance Center (MEAC), a community of highly skilled and strategic partners providing MOM-specific services to manufacturers. This will further enhance TCS’ ability to provide its current and future customers with high performance MOM solutions to enhance manufacturing operations. TCS is also committed to provide expert consulting, project deployment, and implementation services for a variety of Siemens MOM software solutions including manufacturing execution systems (MES), advanced planning and scheduling (APS), quality management systems (QMS), and laboratory information management systems (LIMS).
“TCS is the first partner to achieve complete adoption of the Siemens MOM portfolio while delivering excellence to joint customers,” said Rene Wolf, senior vice president of Manufacturing Operations Management Software for Siemens PLM Software. “This allows TCS and Siemens to help manufacturers realize the full value of the Digital Enterprise from product design and production planning, to production engineering, production execution and services. TCS’ offerings on plant solutions, applying the full Siemens MOM software portfolio, will change the way customers transform and manage the digitalization of their manufacturing operations.”
In a strategic alliance spanning three decades, TCS has partnered at various levels with Siemens PLM Software to offer best-in class consulting and implementation services to its customers. Their extended partnership agreement further strengthens the TCS-Siemens alliance.
