Ingenuity is transforming manufacturing across the U.S.

The Siemens Digital Enterprise Showcase at the Digital Manufacturing and Design Innovation Institute in Chicago is designed to help manufacturers explore a working digital enterprise so they can better understand its value to their companies. The showcase creates a hands-on environment to illustrate how digitalization can help answer important questions on digital manufacturing. Manufacturers can learn how to extend the digital twin strategy across the value chain and optimize human-systems integration. How to make organizational changes to realize the digitalization full potention across the value chain. And how to educate their workforce on digital manufacturing and design technologies.

Future of manufacturing

Manufacturing's intelligent makeover

Software, sensors, data analytics and network technologies are the new "hammers" of American manufacturing The entire production lifecycle can be transformed with intelligent tools, and early adopters are forging their way to competitive advantage.

Ushering in the age of the digital enterprise

The impetus for becoming a digital enterprise is not about who has the coolest technology - but who can best achieve advantage without disruption. The case for adopting innovation is often made as companies plateau in mastering perennial challenges such as efficiency and time to market. Discrete and process industries at all levels of maturity, and companies of all sizes are forging a path to digitalization using Siemens ingenuity:

  •  Integrating islands of data to gain systemic visibility and enhance production control.
  •  Enhancing design and engineering through software that enables virtual design and rapid prototyping.
  •  Performing remote diagnostics and running simulations to predict and plan for maintenance.

The future of manufacturing is digital. Are you ready?

Oil & Gas

Rethinking operating costs from end to end

Transportation solutions

America's express pass to mobility

City light rail and metros together with inter-city passenger rail is giving a boost to regional economies, making it easier for people to move around, expand access to opportunity and improve quality of life. Rail and road solutions are also helping to reduce traffic congestion on roads and highways.

Siemens is working with cities and people to help move America forward

To modernize and revitalize cities, we make transportation more efficient, intelligent, and safe - while lowering environmental impact and creating a better traveler experience. We deliver cloud-based traffic management systems, locomotives, light rail and metros, rail signaling and electrification solutions. One in every 3 light rail cars operating in the U.S. was built by Siemens. Along with our rail electrification and rail signaling systems in the U.S., we bring advanced technologies that improve operator performance and passenger quality of life. For example:

 

  •  Communications-Based Train Control systems for New York’s Metropolitan Transit Authority
  •  Light rail vehicles for the Twin Cities that reduce gas emissions by more than 70% vs. cars
  •  Traffic management systems that shorten commute times by 20% along routes in San Antonio, Texas

 

We live and work in the communities where we create Ingenuity for life, with 2,000 employees across North America and full-scale transportation manufacturing facilities in five U.S. locations.
