Today’s manufacturers, whether discreet or process-oriented, must find new and innovative ways to increase efficiency, flexibility and speed to market, while guaranteeing quality and safety. They need to be agile and digital — one step ahead of the curve and two steps ahead of the status quo.
And they need a future-focused automation partner that can help adapt to — and capitalize on — the furious pace of change in today’s global economy.
Sustainable, efficient and future-focused automation systems are critical to the success of their business. Determining how to leverage the latest automation technologies is a decision that can have an enormous impact on their competitive position, today and tomorrow.
The Internet of Things, Smart Manufacturing and Digitalization are solutions targeted at these growing challenges. At Siemens, we call it the Digital Enterprise Suite. Digitalization links together the five main phases of a product value chain:
- Product design
- Production planning
- Production engineering
- Production execution
- Enter the Digital Enterprise Suite
Siemens has developed an extensive suite of software products and can offer its customers a holistic automation solution covering all major digitalization requirements - the Digital Enterprise Suite. Two software platforms, NX and Teamcenter provide the basic tools to move from a virtual component to a virtual product and on to an actual product. NX provides key capabilities for fast, efficient and flexible product development and Teamcenter is our collaborative product data management platform.
For manufacturing, Siemens provides a complete portfolio of products, including manufacturing hardware, such as SIMATIC and SINUMERIK PLCs, HMIs, sensors, motion control and industrial networking devices. All these elements are tied together through the TIA Portal, enabling coordination and a common programming platform, which decreases engineering time up to 30%.
