The Digital Factory (DF) Division offers a comprehensive portfolio of seamlessly integrated hardware, software and technology-based services in order to support manufacturing companies worldwide in enhancing the flexibility and efficiency of their manufacturing processes and reducing the time to market of their products.
What we do
The seamless integration of data along the industrial value chains has increased in importance to become a key criterion for manufacturing company competitiveness. The Digital Factory Division provides customers with a comprehensive portfolio of hardware and software products which enable the integration of lifecycle data across the supply chain. With a complete digital representation of the entire physical value chain the "Digital Enterprise" operates with greater agility.
The Digital Factory portfolio connects major parts of the product and production life cycle – building upon a rich history of software-based products. Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) software, for example, allows companies to develop and optimize new products on an entirely virtual basis. For manufacturers, Totally Integrated Automation (TIA) ensures the efficient interoperability of all automation components. The TIA Portal, for example, already enables significant time and cost savings in engineering.
In close cooperation with the Process Industries and Drives (PD) Division, the Digital Factory Division provides a large and unique portfolio of PLM software tools, industrial automation solutions and drive technologies tailored to meet individual customer requirements in various discrete industrial areas.
Customers rely on our commitment to the long-term development of their businesses. Protecting our customers' investments now and in the future – a particularly important consideration in the software business – is one of the major pillars of our business strategy. And when it comes to shaping the future of industry, DF is a driving and trendsetting force which joins with its partners worldwide in proven leading-edge technologies to increase productivity and protect a competitive edge.
