Explore how the industrial metaverse is transforming sustainable manufacturing practices and its potential benefits and challenges.
Siemens has introduced a comprehensive private 5G solution, specifically developed for the industrial sector. This in-house developed infrastructure enables industrial companies to establish their own local 5G networks, providing optimal support for automation applications such as mobile robots, autonomous logistics, and driverless transport systems. The technology grants users enhanced control over their network data and allows for custom configuration to suit unique applications. Siemens’ private 5G infrastructure has undergone extensive real-world testing to ensure it meets the rigorous demands of industrial production environments and is currently available in Germany, with plans for expansion to other countries.
Siemens is addressing these challenges by developing a private Industrial 5G network infrastructure with a user-friendly interface tested in real-world environments. Additionally, they have Industrial 5G routers that allow for reliable wireless connectivity. As these challenges are resolved, we expect increased adoption of private Industrial 5G networks, driving digital transformation and competitive advantage in the industrial sector.
Industrial Operations X is a continuously growing interoperable portfolio of products and services for product engineering, execution, and optimization. This offering brings more information technology (IT) and software capabilities to automation and production operations, making industrial operations more adaptable and people centric.
With the new Teamcenter app for Microsoft Teams, anticipated later in 2023, the companies are enabling design engineers, frontline workers and teams across business functions to close feedback loops faster and solve challenges together. For example, service engineers or production operatives can use mobile devices to document and report product design or quality concerns using natural speech. Through Azure OpenAI Service, the app can parse that informal speech data, automatically creating a summarized report and routing it within Teamcenter to the appropriate design, engineering or manufacturing expert. To foster inclusion, workers can record their observations in their preferred languages which is then translated into the official company language with Microsoft Azure AI.
Siemens has announced a partnership with NTT Communications and NTT Data to develop and implement a decarbonization roadmap aimed at helping companies in the manufacturing, automotive, and telecommunications sectors to reduce their carbon emissions. The initiative will focus on promoting the use of renewable energy, optimizing energy usage through data analysis, and developing sustainable business models. The partnership is part of Siemens’ broader commitment to achieve net-zero emissions by 2030 and to enable its customers to do the same. Through this partnership, Siemens aims to support its customers in transitioning to a more sustainable and low-carbon future while reducing costs and improving efficiency.
