Digitalisation has developed into a decisive lever for growth in practically every sector of industry. Because digitalisation is the central key to greater productivity, efficiency and flexibility, it forms the focus of the Siemens presentation at the 2015 Hannover Messe. Speaking at the press conference prior to the fair, CEO of the Digital Factory Division Anton S. Huber said: "True gains in efficiency can only be achieved today by optimising and networking systems and processes along the entire product and production life cycle. Digitalisation opens up whole new scope for producing companies to develop and manufacture products and solutions quickly and efficiently. Anyone who consistently leverages these opportunities will benefit from a decisive competitive edge".
The 3500 m2 Siemens booth (D35 in Hall 9) will feature a wide range of solutions and products from its group-wide growth fields of electrification, automation and digitalisation under the banner "On the way to Industrie 4.0 – Driving the Digital Enterprise". As well as the integration of renewable energies into the energy system, a variety of industrial solutions such as Totally Integrated Automation (TIA), Integrated Drive Systems (IDS), Industry Software and plant data services will all be featured in the Siemens presentation. Also located within the booth will be the "Digitalisation Forum", where Siemens will be presenting concrete examples of digital technologies in application in the manufacturing and process industry as well as machine building.
"The digital factory is no longer just a vision. We are already making a significant contribution to its achievement today. Our Teamcenter software solution functions as a central data backbone. A decisive factor for improved production with greater efficiency and a shorter time to market is the complete digital representation of a company’s entire value chain", said Anton S. Huber.
