Services for the Digital Enterprise explained


No matter if it’s about brewing beer, mixing
colors, producing medicine, or assembling mobile phones, planes and cars … … everybody is talking about digitalization,
digital transformation, digital enterprises … But how do you do it? Where do you start? What’s the best way to do it? Does anyone know all that and can help? Siemens has turned the digital enterprise
into a management issue and has quite something to offer. Not only hardware and software, but especially
energetic service experts who are there from day one onward, with deep know-how and a lot
of passion. We call that: Services for the Digital Enterprise It’s all about consulting machine builders
and industrial companies from all industries, implementing and continuously optimizing awesome
digital solutions. In short: *giggle* achieving success in three
steps. In practical terms, this means that our service
experts analyze the degree of digital maturity of a company, create road maps, generate digital
twins of machines, plants, and entire factories, simulate operation, and commission everything
in a virtual environment as well as in the real world, implement Industrial Edge technology,
establish connectivity to the cloud, continuously optimize plant efficiency – increasingly
so with the help of artificial intelligence – and are always working flat out. Do you want proof? What we implement for our customers, we also
use in our own factories – that’s for sure. For example, in Manufacturing Fürth,
in the beautiful city of … Fürth. Here, we manufacture special products in small
batches. That’s why we require super high flexibility
in production, and everything must be super-fast – with maximum quality, of course. In order to make sure this works, we transformed
Manufacturing Fürth into a digital enterprise – in the three known steps: 1 What function does the greatest factory serve,
if it isn’t secure? That’s why our security experts screened
all processes, identified security gaps and closed them. Everything went like clockwork. Now we hold the highest industrial security. 2
Thanks to the small production batches, many different products are transported in boxes. Over and over again we wondered:
Where is box X – or lets just call it “Heidi”? You have no idea how much time and effort
it takes to find Heidi everytime … So, our service experts came up with something
extraordinary: They created a digital twin of the production hall, simulated the path
of the boxes through production, analyzed it and found a solution. Today, each box has an RTLS tag – this stands
for real-time locating system. This also applies to Heidi. As soon as a box enters the hall, our system
realizes it and determines its position with centimeter precision. This way we can always see where Heidi presently
is. 3 As all of us know, there’s always room for
improvement. At Manufacturing Fürth, we focused on an
entire production line. Our goal: reducing open solder joints. We collected process data, locally optimized
it with edge computing, and analyzed it in the cloud with the help of algorithms. Thanks to root-cause analysis, we now can
identify and fix sources of error. This way we increase product quality and overall
equipment effectiveness, OEE. These were just a few of the countless things
that the experts of Digital Enterprise Services are doing. These were just a few of the countless things
that the experts of Services for the Digital Enterprise are doing. They just understand how digitalization is
working. Benefit from it as well. Because your digital transformation matters
