Siemens has the engineering, domain and digital know-how to generate performance improvements across the entire value chain, from design to production and operations to maintenance.
Digital simulation technology accelerates the plant design, the installation and commissioning as well as the entire product design and production planning process. Multiple components in systems and plants can be intelligently networked to communicate with each other and exchange real-time data. Machine learning makes complex systems more efficient without human intervention. The intelligent analysis of operational data helps identify patterns and predict potential downtimes. Minimum downtimes boost reliability thanks to lifecycle services.
Many areas of our lives have already been changed by the Internet of Things, and industry is no exception. By blending the real and the virtual worlds of production via the internet, the IoT makes it possible to connect all parts of the production process: machines, products, systems, and people. This means that machines and products can communicate so they can manage themselves and each other.
Software-based system and service platforms will play a major role in tomorrow’s manufacturing; they are the only way to bring connectivity, including data analysis, to machines and workpieces in production.
Bosch's software solutions for connected manufacturing and logistics gather, visualize, analyze, and monitor machine, process, and sensor data. They then translate this data into useful information that serves as a source for their rule- and process-based actions. The transparency this creates allows clients to determine precisely where to optimize production and logistics processes along the entire value chain.
The Internet of Things (IoT) and advanced data science are rewriting the rules of competition. The advantage goes to organizations that can convert petabytes of freshly arrived and historical data to predictions – more quickly and more accurately than their competitors. Payoffs include better product and service design, promotion, and pricing; optimized supply chains that avoid delays and increase output; reduced churn; higher average revenue per customer; and predictive maintenance that avoids downtime for vehicle fleets and manufacturing systems while lowering service costs.
To make sense of and act on the unprecedented volume, velocity, and variety of data in real time, companies are applying the sciences of big data, advanced analytics, machine learning, and cloud computing. Products themselves are being redesigned to accommodate connectivity and low-cost sensors, creating a market opportunity for adaptive systems, a new generation of smart applications, and a renaissance of business process reengineering. The new IT paradigm will reshape the value chain by transforming product design, marketing, manufacturing, and after-sale services.
C3 IoT offers a new generation of smart, real-time applications, overcoming the development challenges that have blocked companies from realizing the potential of the Internet of Things. Proven in more than 20 enterprise-scale production environments, the C3 IoT Platform is PaaS for the design, development, deployment, and operation of next-generation IoT applications and business processes.
Consider for a moment what it takes to deliver critical supplies, such as food and medicine, to a remote village in a country divided by civil unrest. It’s not as simple as flying from A to B. There’s high potential for surprise―everything from an encounter with hostile combatants to a sudden change in approach can occur. Unexpected variables abound, and decisions must be made and executed in real time, without fear or hesitation, to ensure success. In the era of the Internet of Things (IoT), the greatest variable in a mission - the human element - can be supported by the same level of rational, high-level decision making. A platform is developed so that it can observe, orient, decide and act on multiple issues simultaneously.
UTRC’s autonomy platform is capable of doing just that, allowing for the development of vertical take-off aircraft that thinks on their own. The platform employs advanced sensing technologies, algorithms and human-machine interaction systems to make hundreds of necessary real-time decisions and successfully traverse every obstacle encountered. This platform is not limited to aerospace alone, as it has the potential to address challenges in a variety of civilian and military markets, including building security and robotics for situation evaluation and disaster zone repair.
Globally, countries, cities, industries and businesses are becoming digital to capitalize on the next wave of the Internet - the Internet of Everything (IoE), which we define as the connection of people, processes, data and things. When people, processes, data and things are connected, we believe it creates an opportunity to deliver better customer experiences, create new revenue streams and operating models to drive efficiency and produce value. Cisco's goal is to be a strategic partner to our customers by providing the solutions, people, partners and experience as their customers move from traditional to digital businesses. They believe their customers’ journey to becoming digital businesses requires security, cloud, mobile, social and analytic technologies with a strong foundation of an intelligent network that is agile, simple and that provides real time business insight. The move to digital is driving many of their customers to adopt entirely new IT architectures and organization structures. In their view, Cisco are delivering the architectural approach and solution-based results to help them reduce complexity, accelerate and grow, and manage risk in a world that is increasingly virtualized, application centric, cloud-based, analytics-driven, and mobile.
