Future-proof with the IoT: How to survive the fourth Industrial Revolution

Industry is changing at a rapid pace, and it’s no exaggeration to refer to the changes we’re experiencing as the “Fourth Industrial Revolution”. For organizations that want to survive in this new, future-driven economy, innovation and adaptation of the traditional business model are requirements. 


This means learning how to connect machines to collect and structure data, learning how to use data effectively, and finding ways to offer IoT services that bring value and higher margins of profitability to customers. As companies continue to find new ways to structure their next-generation business models, smart machines and hyperautomation are helping to pave the way.


In the first episode of the series, Jörg Ludwig welcomes two guests from Siemens Bad Neustadt, an electric motor factory in Bad Neustadt an der Saale, Germany. Heiko Dickas is the team leader of the digitalization team, and Sebastian Oeder is the head of the production unit main motors. We’ll also hear from Portfolio Development Manager, Colm Gavin, and Head of PreSales and Solution Design, Matthias Lutz.


In today’s episode, we’ll talk about how companies can leverage digitalization in order to overcome potential manufacturing disruptions. We’ll also run through some of the greatest challenges that the manufacturing industry faces in normal times, forces that cause them to escalate, and how businesses can come back stronger after disruptions. 


Some Questions Asked:

  • What have been the biggest challenges on this journey? (2:35)
  • Can these challenges be generalized to industrial machinery? (5:12)
  • How are industrial IoT customers shaping the industry? (7:46)
  • Has there been a significant implementation of these new industrial IoT business models in recent years? (9:20)
  • What is hyperautomation? (11:27)


What You Will Learn:

  • Why permission to fail helps us learn (4:04)
  • What customers are saying about IoT (8:21)
  • An OEM customer use case (9:56)
  • What a smart factory does differently (12:09)
  • How hyperautomation spurred growth (16:18)

Intelligent Performance Engineering: How Integrated Systems Are Easing the Customization Process for Manufacturers

Manufacturing technology is full of moving parts. From design to simulation and ultimately production, physical changes to any part of the process can be costly. How can businesses keep up with those changes in a world where frequent customization has become the new norm?The answer is simple: integration. When part design and simulation are integrated, designers and engineers can work together seamlessly. Proposed changes in design can be simulated using simple drag and drop tools. This integrated approach has the capacity to streamline a process that would otherwise be inefficient and profoundly cost-prohibitive.Joining us again today are Rahul Garg, Industry Leader for Siemens Industrial Machinery, and Giulio Camauli, Industry Solutions Manager at Siemens Digital Industries Software. Their expertise as representatives of the industrial machinery industry will help us to better understand the ins and outs of the Intelligent Performance Engineering Solution from Siemens Digital Industries Software.In today’s episode, we’ll talk about the advantages of integrated part design and simulation, how this is benefitting manufacturers, and where the digital twin fits into the equation. We’ll also share a few examples of how companies are successfully applying these integrated systems in ways that weren’t possible with the traditional process model.What You'll Learn In This Episode:The challenges that machine builders are facing where the multiphysics simulation approach comes in handy. (01:43)Why it’s useful to pre-assess any new design modifications and what it entails. (02:50)The importance of implementing the integrated design and manufacturing process. (04:22)Why the digital twin is unique in the context of Intelligence Performance Engineering (06:46)The benefits the manufacturers can achieve by incorporating integrated design and simulation into their manufacturing process. (08:56)A real-world example of a company that implemented this integrated design and simulation approach.
