What is the potential of the smart machine industry in Belgium? Are companies really ready for them? Siemens PLM Software will be researching this in the coming months.
Insight and developments
At the end of 2017, a similar study was concluded in the Netherlands. It showed, among other things, most Dutch machine builders are not exploring the potential of digital transformation and business innovation.
But what about Belgium? Siemens will use this benchmark study to provide insight into developments in the Belgian market.
Strategy and revenue models
Machines increasingly have the capacity for innovative digital applications. Many engineers wish to explore the potential of digital transformation, but don’t know the best way to begin. Also, the consequences and possible results are often still unclear. For example, what will digitalisation mean for the knowledge and expertise that engineers will have to acquire in the coming years?
The benchmark research, therefore, includes a strong focus on strategy, transformation, new revenue models and innovation. These are daily topics of discussion at Siemens. We want to get a better understanding of what machine builders are doing, so we can help them more.
