Industrial Identification and Locating
Performance starts with knowledge: Intelligent data management with Industrial Identification and Locating
Industrial processes in the digital enterprise demand total transparency and a high level of customization. Our solutions close the gap between the real and the digital worlds – and add value along the entire production and supply chain. We offer the industry of the future a unique, consistent end-to-end range of identification and locating systems for customer-specific applications. TIA connectivity ensures our products are seamlessly integrated in automation solutions. Support for cloud applications such as MindSphere allow large volumes of data to be recorded, analyzed, and utilized to make improvements. The end result is a system that improves visibility, increases efficiency, and brings our customers one step closer to the factory of the future.
Our survey of senior executives from US manufacturing companies in the automotive sector shows that many firms are working toward this vision.
Many auto manufacturers have started toward digitalization and are beginning to unlock the value of emerging technologies. Yet despite manufacturers’ clear appetite for digital, there remains a number of barriers to increased adoption.
The most holistic digital twin
The holistic approach of the Digital Enterprise for creating digital twins in the automotive industry offers tangible benefits: You can substantially reduce the number of prototypes you need during the development of new cars. It becomes possible to predict the performance of the production unit and the products themselves. And it ensures you can produce what your customers expect in terms of individualization and drive concepts.
The digital twin in the automotive industry is the precise virtual model of a vehicle 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.
Food & Beverage

A concept based on plant-wide automation provides optimal conditions for digitalization solutions that offer payoffs for plant operators and mechanical engineers throughout all phases of the plant lifecycle – along the entire value chain.
New challenges in a competitive market
The global tire market is expected to witness significant growth over the forthcoming years. At the same time, it has become more complex than ever. The increasing number of car types calls for a greater variety of tires. In addition, automotive trends such as eMobility and autonomous driving increase the demand for innovative concepts in tire design and tire production. That’s why competitive tire production needs to be highly flexible and able to react swiftly to meet volatile market developments. At the same time, it needs to meet today’s high requirements in terms of quality, safety, environmental standards and increasing internationalization. Tire manufacturers require consistent solutions that help them optimize their plants’ availability, reduce their TCO and improve time to market. Taking full advantage of digitalization and making use of new business models make it possible to get there.
