Digital Enterprise in the process industries
Digitalization creates new opportunities to produce more flexibly and satisfy customer-specific requirements individually. Prerequisite: integrated processes across the entire lifecycle.
Process industry success
The regulations, markets, and technologies are changing – as a company in the process industry, you are under high competitive pressure. This necessitates a balancing act between innovation and continuity. On the one hand, you have to design production more flexibly in order to launch products faster and satisfy individual customer requirements. On the other hand, you must comply with regulations and assure process safety and high product quality. And productivity and efficiency must keep rising so costs can keep falling.
Take the path to the Digital Enterprise
Whether in existing production sites or new plants, digitalization is the most effective lever for improving competitiveness in the process industry. See for yourself how the company Dulux, Australia's largest paint manufacturer, has completely and consistently digitalized its new production site in Merrifield, Australia.

Efficiency sets the tone
The DuluxGroup is Australia largest producer of paints.
When building their new production plant, Dulux relied on state-of-the-art manufacturing technology and consistent, end-to-end digitalization of all processes.
This enables efficient manufacturing of paints in any quantity, whether in batch sizes of one or in mass production.
Personalization is a top trend in medical technology.
Biotechnology company BioNTech is specialized in the development of personalized cancer vaccines.
BioNTech chose Siemens as its strategic partner for GMP production.
Factory of the future
The Solvay/Butachimie chemical factory in Chalampé, France, is one of the world’s largest facilities specializing in the manufacture of polyamide 6.6 and its intermedi-ary products.
Investments in future-proofing their facilities resulted in the changeover of all pro-duction facilities to SIMATIC PCS 7.
To simplify the migration and further optimization, the real plants were tested before their actual commissioning – as a sort of “virtual twin” – using SIMIT simulation software.
Completely integrated digital solution package consisting of electrical and telecommuni-cations technology, instrumentation, and process control for Norway’s Ivar Aasen oil plat-form in the North Sea.
With the COMOS and COMOS Walkinside software solutions, technicians receive accu-rate 3D mapping information on every component of the plant – without ever having to set foot on the platform.
Digital solutions convert data into real-time knowledge, enabling faster, more intelligent decisions and savings in the millions.
The Albert Friedrich AG (Fripa) paper factory uses the SIPAPER industry concept for its new PM7 toilet tissue line.
The solution is precisely tailored to the paper industry.
It includes highly efficient drive systems, automation and process management systems, intelligent energy distribution and services.
The move of the Munich Paulaner Brewery from the Nockherberg to Langwied was fully planned in advance.
Paulaner used the TECHNOMATIX simulation tool to ensure that the plant engineering went smoothly at the new brewing location.
To compare brewing scenarios and to determine the optimum setup, the brewing process was simulated.
