Siemens takes the next step in digital transformation

20 March 2020

With its Digital Enterprise, Siemens is taking the next step of the digital transformation. The integration of cutting-edge technologies such as edge and cloud computing, artificial intelligence or additive manufacturing into the portfolio offers users new opportunities to achieve more flexible and intelligent production. Communicative networking through Industrial 5G plays a key role. 

This year’s product innovations include the Sitrans MS Multisensor, which is used primarily for the condition monitoring of mechanical plant components such as pumps, compressors, gears and valves. Through the AI-based analysis of sensor data, important information can be generated for predictive maintenance. The user can access machine KPIs and status messages via mobile devices or cloud applications. Siemens is also showcasing four applications for the Closed Loop Digital Twin. They can be used to exchange data in both directions between Teamcenter, Tecnomatix Plant Simulation, Amesim and MindSphere for the continuous improvement of the quality of physical models and simulations. Another new product presented by Siemens is an innovative IoT gateway between cloud, in-house IT and production: Simatic IOT2050 will feature edge functionality in future, meaning that it can be integrated easily into Siemens Industrial Edge solutions.
