Making Industry 4.0 a Reality

Industry 4.0 is changing the way we do business. In a manufacturing setting the need to switch to digital technologies is a must for companies if they want to compete and survive. However, how to successfully implement Industry 4.0 presents specific challenges for any organisation.

Siemens have put together a four-part webinar serries to take a more in-depth look at how to set out a clear path to adopt and understand the technologies. They explain what they have found to be the four main pillars of IoT, so businesses can start achieving and scaling incremental improvements in their productivity.

The webinars will look to demystify the technology and provide practical steps to implementation. Over the course of the serries they will look at the four main pillars of IoT – Connectivity, Control, Digitalisation and Augmentation. These four pillars are essential to successfully realising your digital ambitions and getting those vital scalable gains that can improve productivity and over-all performance of your company.

Pillar 1: Connectivity

The first part in the serries introduces the Industry 4.0 journey, connectivity. The need to adopt IoT technology is essential for business growth and survival, but the right method of adoption remains overly complex.

How to path the way for a successful transition into IoT is crucial to understanding the power of the technology. Connecting and monitoring machines will help businesses understand how to maximise productivity with a completely transparent operation. Learn how to get connected with old and new machines, utilising that data to get a complete overview of your output and capacity.

Pillar 2: Control

Control maintenance operations

The second pillar focuses on: Control with full machine transparency.
In this webinar learn to control your machines and data to optimise maintenance – eliminate unscheduled downtime, increase uptime, improve manufacturing scheduling, and increase performance.

Join this webinar to discover the benefits and details of changing from one maintenance state to another.
You will learn:
• Condition monitoring/ preventative maintenance
• Predictive maintenance
• Prescriptive maintenance



Pillar 3: Digitalization
Optimize your digital twins with performance data

This is the third webinar of a four-part series that explores the four pillars of making any industrial IoT project a reality.

The third webinar in the series focuses on: Digitization – Operating Digital Twins.
Specifically, how the closed-loop digital twin significantly increases the benefits of the well-known product and production of digital twins. How?

The closed-loop digital twin enhances the capabilities of these virtual representations by leveraging industrial IoT and adding the performance digital twin.
You will learn:
• How to optimize live production runs
• How to improve simulations and reduce prototyping
• How to transform your predictive maintenance process

Pillar 4: Augmentation
Augment your industrial IoT technology to reduce risk and to extend your operational prospects

This is the fourth webinar of a four-part series that explores the four pillars of making any industrial IoT project a reality.

This webinar focuses on the fourth pillar: Augmentation – Extending Outcomes.
How far will your IoT platform take you? Learn what is possible beyond connecting, monitoring, and improving maintenance practices. Learn how to be an early adopter for the next wave of digitalization.
You will learn:
• Discover how the closed-loop digital twin reduces risk
• Identify how to get started with industrial edge processing for quicker, more efficient decision-making
• Learn how to contextualize disparate data sources for advanced insights
