The manufacturing industry enormously benefits from the potential of digital transformation. Technologies like sensor technology, robotics, AR and VR, that enable high-quality data acquisition and evaluation, guarantee a efficient production in a batch size of 1, high productivity, lower production costs, higher competitiveness and zero downtimes.
For its division Process Industries and Drives in Nuremberg, Siemens AG intends to leverage the advantages of these innovative technologies. In this case, the focus concentrates on customer-specific projects with a high level of manual production, which means that people still play a major role in the process. For this reason, IT must enable the workers to interact with the systems and with the machines as well.
