Manufacturing Operations Management (MOM)
Digitalization can only be successful when we stop thinking in boxes and start to think digital in all steps of the value chain from product idea to shelf. Only Siemens and IDEAL PLM are able to provide integrated software solutions across the entire value chain of our customers from initial conceptual design through manufacturing planning and execution through service and support of both the products and the plants that produce them.
These solutions support each one of the core activities: from the initial product design, sophisticated product engineering, simulation and test, to the digital definition of the manufacturing process and plant, manufacturing execution and operations management, and analytics of the product operating in the field. Specialized Teamcenter applications play an important role in many of these engineering steps. Tightly integrated automation portfolio with Motion Control and Factory Automation solutions completes the Digital Enterprise Software Suite.
Manufacturing Execution Systems, Simatic IT process or Discrete, on the factory floor are able to collect a wealth of data from the production and form of physical products. This collection, with MOM, has changed from being manually collected and paper based to being digital. The Digital Twin concept model is shifting the paradigm of manufacturing: virtual products in Virtual Space, physical products in Real Space and connections of data and information that ties the virtual and real products together.
Updating the virtual world, based on real world manufacturing data, brings to a more adherent virtual representation of reality. This is the basis to finally improve the reality itself via simulation of the digital model and close the loop.More information: Siemens Manufacturing Operations Center
