The Siemens Digital Enterprise Software Suite provides a holistic solution to integrate, optimize and digitalize the complete value chain in order to reduce time to market, enhance flexibility and increase quality and efficiency. By connecting the virtual and real worlds and creating a digital thread throughout the company, manufacturers can move from just mimicking processes digitally to Digitalization where digital knowledge becomes a business driver.
The Siemens product portfolio already smoothly connects major parts of the product and production lifecycle today. Powerful Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) software, for example, allows the development and optimization of new products on an entirely virtual basis. In the real manufacturing world the Totally Integrated Automation (TIA) concept, which has proven its worth for about 20 years now, ensures the efficient interoperability of all automation components. The Totally Integrated Automation Portal (TIA Portal), for example, already enables significant time and cost savings in engineering. To start realizing the Digital Enterprise today, Siemens focuses on four core elements: Digital Enterprise Software Suite, Industrial Communication, Industrial Security and Industry Services.
