Integral Plant Maintenance
Integral Plant Maintenance
Mercedes-Benz and his partner GAZ chose Siemens to be its maintenance partner at a new engine plant in Yaroslavl, Russia. The new plant offers a capacity to manufacture diesel engines for the Russian market, for locally produced Sprinter Classic. In addition to engines for the local market, the Yaroslavl plant will also produce spare parts. Mercedes-Benz Russia and his partner needed a service partner in order to ensure the operation of these lines in a maintenance partnership arrangement. The challenges included coordinating the entire maintenance management operation, in particular inspections, corrective and predictive maintenance activities, and the optimizing spare parts management. Siemens developed a customized maintenance solution that includes all electronic and mechanical maintenance activities (Integral Plant Maintenance).

SINEMA Server
SINEMA Server
The software SINEMA Server V13 was specially developed for industrial applications. It is possible to analyze and observe networks completely by using SNMP for all network components and evaluating SIMATIC and PROFINET assemblies in an automation environment. Collected data is saved in a long-term archive so that it can be evaluated and displayed as required. The determined network diagnosis may additionally be seamlessly integrated via OPC and web mechanisms into HMI/SCADA systems (e.g. WinCC, PCS7).SINEMA Server V13 was specifically developed for industrial applications and provides maximum transparency in industrial networks through automatic topology recognition, constant network monitoring as well as comprehensive diagnostics and reporting functions.

MindSphere’s open infrastructure is based on SAP HANA and open OPC UA (Unified Architecture) web services for commutations. The SAP HANA Cloud Platform is an open platform-as-a-service that provides in-memory database and application services for high performance. OPC UA is a platform-independent, service-oriented architecture that integrates all the functionality of the individual OPC Classic specifications into one extensible framework. The advantages of open interfaces, such as OPC UA, is that it enables products, like MindSphere, to be used with automation and control systems from any manufacturer. MindConnectWith MindConnect, Siemens offers numerous possibilities for connecting machines, plants and worldwide fleets to MindSphere, regardless of the manufacturer. MindConnect Nano for instance is a Plug&Play solution that enables you to read out data from your industrial asset and pre-process it for transfer to MindSphere - simply and reliably. The encrypted data is then transferred securely to MindSphere, where it is then available for your analysis.MindConnect Nano is a preconfigured, industrial blind node PC brick, which enables connectivity to the MindSphere cloud. This device transmits data, encrypted through a secure internet connection, to MindSphere allowing the creation of cloud-based applications and services. Data defined by the user, connected using the Mind Connect Nano, is then transmitted to MindSphere at fixed time intervals. The MindConnect Nano supports standards such as OPC UA and Siemens’ S7 protocol. In the future, this function will be integrated into all communication-capable products in the Siemens portfolio. MindAppsThe Siemens MindApps Fleet Manager and Visual Analyzer are already available on MindSphere.

Autonomous Robots
Autonomous Robots
Autonomous robots are intelligent machines capable of performing tasks in the world independently of either direct human control or fixed programming. Examples range from autonomous drones, to industrial production robots, to your robotic vacuum cleaner. They combine expertise from the fields of artificial intelligence, robotics, and information science.The autonomous robot must have the ability to perceive its environment, analyze situational data in order to make decisions based on what it perceives, and then modify its actions based on these decisions. For example, the scope of autonomy could include starting, stopping, maneuvering around obstacles, communicating to obstacles, and using appendages to manipulate obstacles. There are few autonomous robots in operation today. Even most sophisticated, dynamic robots such as those used in an automotive factory perform according to static programming. And most "autonomous robots" are only semi-autonomous and will likely remain so even as more fundamental autonomy becomes technically feasible. For example, the Roomba vacuum cleaner does not move according to a pre-programmed route and can modify its route dynamically as its environment changes. However, it has a very limited degree of freedom that is determined by its programming. 
Rapid Prototyping | 3D Printing
Rapid Prototyping | 3D Printing
Rapid prototyping uses 3D printing or additive manufacturing technologies to create prototypes faster and at a significantly lower cost than traditional methods. It is used to enable quick design iterations and development of physical proofs-of-concept products for market testing. Prototypes can be concept models to demonstrate the look and feel of a product or functional prototypes. Concept models are useful for marketing research and branding, as well as for allowing engineers and architects to explore design options. Functional prototypes have some but not all properties of the finished product. They can be tested to identify design flaws before going to production. 
Indoor Positioning System (IPS)
Indoor Positioning System (IPS)
Indoor Positioning Systems (IPS) are used to locate persons or objects inside buildings, as opposed to GPS which works outdoors. IPSs impact asset monitoring and automation at the enterprise level. The technology is expected to bring in integration capabilities of analytical software tools with the existing maps and navigation software.
