- Siemens can connect the real world with the digital world based on digital twin technology, and more effectively promote the digital transformation of the manufacturing industry
On December 8, Dr. Zhu Xiaoxun, executive vice president of Siemens (China) Co., Ltd., general manager of Siemens Aventas China, and president of Siemens China Research Institute, was invited to participate in the “2022 Sino-German Intelligent Manufacturing Technology Innovation Cooperation Summit and Alliance Annual Conference” and Give a keynote speech. Dr. Zhu Xiaoxun focused on “Digital Intelligence, China and Germany Join Hands in Innovation” and introduced that Siemens applies the achievements through technological innovation to the business that runs through Siemens’ development and customer needs. By connecting the real world and the digital world, it makes full use of knowledge in various fields and contributes to the digital transformation of China’s industries. Continuously contribute to sustainable development.
The following is the compilation of live sharing record:
Siemens has embarked on the road of digital transformation since 2007 and is currently one of the top ten software companies in the world. This year coincides with the 150th anniversary of Siemens in China. Over the years, Siemens has been committed to contributing to the development of China’s digital transformation. As a leader in traditional industrial automation, Siemens has a large number of hardware equipment and control equipment in various industries to assist in infrastructure operations. At the same time, based on digital twin technology, Siemens can connect the real world with the digital world, and more effectively promote the digital transformation of the manufacturing industry.
Behind this, Siemens China Research Institute also plays a key role, mastering core technologies including network and information security, artificial intelligence, software system and development process, simulation and digital twin, automation, etc. to support and promote the real world and Connections in the digital world.
Siemens supports the success of Beijing’s important sports events
Digital transformation is closely related to network information security technology. During the holding of important events in Beijing, Siemens provided technical support for the venue’s ice-making system and network security. The organizer of this important event put forward new requirements for all control systems, including strict requirements for the interconnection, function linkage, and data sharing of control systems from different manufacturers and different business scenarios. Siemens uses network information security technology based on situational awareness to provide comprehensive and multi-level security protection for industrial networks, and applies artificial intelligence technology to quickly identify abnormal traffic, so as to ensure rapid identification and protection of abnormal behavior.
Independent PaaS platform realizes cost reduction and efficiency increase
KingMed Medical is a leading company in the medical inspection industry, with more than 100 business systems, an IT infrastructure of more than 2,000 servers, and a complex environment of more than 3 types of IaaS service providers. Siemens assisted KingMed Medical in planning its own PaaS platform, building new application operations, and completing application modernization for old systems. The self-owned highly scalable general-purpose PaaS platform improves the utilization rate of infrastructure resources and the automation level of operation and maintenance, shortens the cycle of 80% innovation projects, and reduces the time for repairing business failures by 50%.
Provincial green factory product carbon emissions reduced by 70%
Siemens helped a power substation equipment company build an end-to-end “dual carbon” solution, formulate a vision and carbon reduction roadmap on the basis of establishing the transparency of carbon emissions of the company and products, and let the company make progress in the project through the analysis of the return on investment of carbon reduction measures. Realize the breakthrough of “from 0 to 1” in the carbon reduction effect. In the process of carbon reduction, product costs were reduced by 5%, and product carbon emissions were reduced by 70%. The power equipment company became a provincial green factory.
Self-developed IT/OT fusion low-code engineering tools
Siemens China Research Institute has independently developed an IT/OT fusion low-code engineering tool, which uses advanced information technology to open up the process and data interface between IT and OT, so that engineers can complete some low-code arrangement and implementation work in a simple environment. In a specific production line application scenario, IT/OT integrates low-code engineering tools to empower a certain production line, which can flexibly implement additional functions on site, such as adjusting the process at any time without affecting the design of the entire production line, and ultimately save 50% of the system integration time The goal.
Simulation and digital twins increase core workshop output by 50%
At present, the application scenarios of the real world and the digital world have been opened up. Through technical means such as simulation and digital twins, programming can be performed in virtual scenes and used in real equipment to improve factory efficiency. In the process of building a digital benchmark factory in the large-scale mechanical structural parts industry, Siemens built an event model based on digital twin technology to map the virtual logistics system and the real system and realize data interaction. At the same time, various design schemes can be evaluated and optimized through simulation technology, and the best strategy can be fed back to the factory implementation system, helping the real implementation of the production and operation information system. From the results, the solution allowed the factory to increase workshop output by 50%, shorten production cycle by 60%, and reduce WIP by 80%.
The Industrial Metaverse Has Arrived
Based on digital twin technology, the Industrial Metaverse provides a collaborative space that allows all parties to participate, using immersive experience and real-time interaction to unleash unlimited potential for economic and industrial transformation.
In the field of industrial metaverse, Siemens has also made some attempts and explorations.
Siemens Xcelerator cooperates with NVIDIA Omniverse to combine the real world and the digital world, improve product design and manufacturing efficiency through simulation, data analysis, artificial intelligence and other technologies, and unlock new ways of manufacturing. Customers can also use the real-time and comprehensive digital twin robot perception network to improve efficiency and respond to changes in production rhythms caused by environmental changes in a timely manner.
At this year’s CIIE, Siemens released the Siemens Xcelerator open digital business platform to the Chinese market for the first time. The platform fully fits the Chinese market, not only including Siemens’ world-leading products and technologies, but also launching a variety of applications and solutions developed for the needs of the Chinese market.
