Ensuring that everything runs smoothly in the bakery industry
Consistently automated bakery production
Growing product diversity on the one hand, increasing cost pressure on the other hand: to be successful in the bakery industry it takes a production that’s equally flexible and economic. Digitalization can help to create consistent automation, from raw material intake to shipping, from field to ERP level. This way you benefit from efficient workflows that enable highest quality at reduced costs.
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 is the precise virtual model of a product or a production plant. It displays their development throughout the entire lifecycle and allows operators to predict behavior, optimizing performance, and implement insights from previous design and production experiences.
Our comprehensive concept of the digital twin consists of three forms: the digital twin of the product, the digital twin of production, and the digital twin of the performance of both product and production. Thanks to our comprehensive domain expertise and optimized tools, Siemens is the only company that offers this holistic approach.
There is tremendous value gained from performing "what if" scenarios and predicting future performance with the digital twin. The ultimate goal of the digital twin is in the closed-loop connection between the virtual world of product development and production planning with the physical world of production system and product performance. Through this connection actionable insight is gained from the physical world for informed decisions throughout the lifecycle of products and production operations.
Digital enterprises produce more flexible and with maximum quality
Companies become digital enterprises by integrating and digitalizing the entire value chain. For every step from developing a new product through to continuously optimizing a plant, Siemens provides a coordinated portfolio of hardware and software.
