Siemens showcases end-to-end digitalization strategy and Internet of Things ability

By DC Velocity Staff

Global engineering firm Siemens showcased its end-to-end digitalization strategy for industrial and warehouse operations, enabling Industry 4.0 and Internet of Things (IoT) practices with components such as the company's Blue Vision distributed sensors, Totally Integrated Automation (TIA) machine monitoring approach, TeamCenter software collaboration backbone, and MindSphere cloud-based database and analytics platform.

The company showcases many of those capabilities by partnering with the Digital Manufacturing and Design Innovation Institute (DMDII), located in Chicago near the ProMat show itself, said Craig Stevens, a Siemens application engineer for factory automation. First established in 2014 as a partnership among industry, academia, government, and nonprofit organizations, DMDII now allows Siemens to model what-if scenarios, simulating warehouse peak season rush volumes and locating potential bottlenecks.
