Siemens presents industry-specific implementation of the Digital Enterprise

 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. At the booth, Siemens will be showing how today’s companies can increase their competitiveness through digitalization  with solutions for digital twinning throughout the value chain, the open cloud-based IoT operating system MindSphere, and the world leading automation portfolio from Siemens. Integration and digitalization of the value chain provide sustainable competitive benefits through greater flexibility, efficiency and quality in nearly every industry. It provides new opportunities in terms of added value, innovative business models, and future-oriented methods of cooperation. Siemens will be presenting MindSphere Version 3.0 at the exhibition, which is now available on Amazon Web Services AWS. Version 3.0 offers a more powerful development environment with open programming interfaces API/Application Programming Interface as well as additional analytical features and extended connectivity. The show will also be used to introduce the new international user organization MindSphere World, which has 18 founder members. The aim of this group is to extend the ecosystem surrounding MindSphere throughout the world.

Harnessing the potential of digitalization in the discrete industries

“With the Digital Enterprise Suite we support both product manufacturers and machine builders from the discrete industries in achieving their digital transformation,” says Jan Mrosik, CEO of the Digital Factory Division. “It allows us to create a holistic virtual representation, the so-called Digital Twin, of products, production and performance. Through the knowledge gained from MindSphere, we are also able to continuously optimize the entire value chain of our customers. This applies not only to different industries and traditional producing methods, but also to new technologies such as Additive Manufacturing.” Additive manufacturing will also form a focus of this year’s trade fair presentation. Siemens is the world’s only supplier of integrated software and hardware solutions covering every phase of the additive manufacturing value chain. For users, this means that the entire digital process chain is depicted in a single integrated software environment. The tools required for engineering, simulation, product preparation and 3D printing are merged in an integrated system and can be accessed by means of a standardized user interface. This eliminates the need for data conversion and the associated possible loss of information content. This already offers users the possibility to achieve a rapid transition when scaling up from prototyping and small-series production on single machines to fully industrialized series production.
