In the world of industrial machinery manufacturing, there is one word that can describe the current challenges these companies face: complexity.

This complexity includes a rapidly increasing amount of software required inside machines, competitive globalization, shrinking margins, customer requirements for more customized machines, environmental and government regulations, as well as Industry 4.0 and other smart factory initiatives.

In the face of these pressures, it is clear that machines need to be smarter. If you are unable to address the complexity that comes with adding software to your machines, develop an advanced machine from customer requirements or compete aggressively on a global basis, your days of profitable growth are limited. Essentially, the core requirement is to become more innovative in machine design and operation as well as the development process.

Industrial machinery manufacturers must be able to design, engineer and commission machines virtually in order to optimize performance, improve quality and maximize margins. In doing so, you can also improve the speed and efficiency of the design process chain, increase collaboration across the domains, ensure reproducibility and efficiency of manufacturing processes, and meet regulatory needs with advanced mechatronic design.

Advanced Machine Engineering

Automated engineering in use at a manufacturing plant

New consumer demands, challenging trends, strong global competition, and an ever-increasing need for customization - the only way to meet the requirements of such a dynamic market is to integrate automated engineering and digitalize the entire value chain and build tomorrow’s machine today. With the help of a digital twin, any minor tweak, or major change, any check or test can be simulated perfectly in a digital environment –quickly, easily, and with very little cost.

Solution capabilities

Engineer To Order Process Automation

Gain greater control of projects through key project management functions – requirements, configuration, change, and schedule – to improve overall quality, speed, and productivity while reducing cost and delivery risks.

Intelligent performance engineering for industrial machinery

Machinery manufacturing is becoming far more complex as increased integration with software and electrical systems of machines are combined with their manufacturing environment. Our intelligent Performance Engineering solution can help automate the processes of sharing information between design teams, analysts, production test teams and service engineers. This allows teams to evaluate the capabilities and limitations of product variations in the most efficient way.

Mechanical - Electrical Design

Deliver high-quality products on-time and under-budget by leveraging real-time information sharing between electrical, mechanical and control systems designers to insure all the electromechanical devices and sensors are routed accurately.

Mechatronic Concept Design

Mechatronics Concept Designer brings teams together by visualizing machine kinematics in real-time to simulate the impact and machine sequencing defined by electrical and mechanical devices.

Modular Machine Engineering Process Management

Leverage your engineering database by defining modular structures for both products and manufacturing processes, to offer more bid flexibility and manage risk and cost through re-use of parts and processes.

Next Generation Machine Design

Execute end-to-end mechanical product design solution with a rich set of supporting tools for high-performance modeling, drafting and comprehensive assembly design, powered by Synchronous technology.

PLM for Machine Builders

Siemens PLM for Machine Builders is a comprehensive product lifecycle management system providing project, process, and requirements management; machine configuration and reuse; and blended ETO/CTO functionality.

Project Management

Bring portfolio management, project management and the product lifecycle together to allow your company to align resources and prioritize your products to drive your strategic business objectives.

Software Delivery

Orchestrate software development and testing across domains to leverage and track specific build releases for embedded software applications aligned with custom machinery projects.
