Digitalization as an opportunity

Benefit from the advantages of the digital transformation

Take the first step toward digitalization right now and create a lasting competitive edge for your company with the scalable solutions from Siemens. Now’s the right time to start – become a digital enterprise and stay ahead of the competition.


Digitalization is already changing every aspect of life and existing business models. It enables industry to turn its product ideas into reality in a new way by drawing on technological trends like generative design and intelligent models. Additive manufacturing and advanced robotics put production on an innovative footing, and the use of cloud solutions and knowledge automation lets machine builders develop new service models.

Beat the challenges

The new opportunities of digitalization

The disruptive nature of digitalization opens up new business opportunities and ways to satisfy customer requirements more efficiently. 

Holistic approach

Holistic approach to optimizing the entire value chain

Manufacturing companies and machine builders can start the digitalization process at any point in their value chains. 

Digital Twins

The comprehensive Digital Twin in detail

Our holistic approach for creating Digital Twins offers tangible benefits: You can substantially reduce the number of prototypes you need, predict the performance of the production unit and the products themselves, and ensure you produce what your customers expect.


The Digital Twin in manufacturing companies

The comprehensive concept of the Digital Twin for manufacturing companies encompasses the entire value chain. This takes three forms: 

  • The Digital Twin of the Product is first created when a new product is defined and designed, and enables the simulation and validation of products, including mechanics, multi-physics, electronics and software management.
  • The Digital Twin of the Production allows for planning, simulation and optimization of the production with PLC code generation and virtual commissioning. 
  • In the real world, the Digital Twin of the Performance is constantly fed with data from the product and the production facilities, which leads to new insights. Thanks to the connection with integrated automation components, the shop floor provides all relevant data. Feeding back all insights into the entire value chain via MindSphere – right back to product design – generates a fully closed decision-making loop for the continuous optimization of the production and product in the real world.
