|[Professional Insight] Siemens Digital Industries Korea - Accelerating digital transformation through OT and IT convergence
Head of Digital Enterprise
Accelerating digital transformation through OT and IT convergence
Discussions about digital innovation and
industrial intelligence in the manufacturing field continue to this day and
will continue even in the future. Accordingly, Siemens, a technology leader
that plays a key role in the digital transformation field, is the only company
that provides a variety of solutions that combine operational technology (OT)
and information technology (IT).
This convergence helps companies improve
productivity and energy efficiency. For example, IT is used to optimize
production processes by collecting and analyzing data through design and
simulation. This helps improve processes and increase plant efficiency.
In particular, energy efficiency is one of
the current concerns of many companies along with the net-zero goal. Siemens is
conducting virtual test drives with domestic customers and exploring ways to
increase energy efficiency. From energy data analysis to identifying energy
consumption patterns using AI, it will greatly contribute to the sustainable
management of companies.
In addition, Siemens' digital business
platform, Siemens Xcelerator, which was introduced last year, provides various
benefits to companies. This platform allows accurate data analysis of the
process, and it can handle a variety of scales from unit facilities to
large-scale processes, which helps companies increase efficiency by subdividing
or expanding the production process.
At Smart Production Solution (SPS) held in
Nuremberg, Germany this November, Siemens went beyond the automation of simple
tasks and introduced 'adaptive production' in which production can be
automatically adjusted to the environment even in rapid changes and unpredictable
situations. This means the plant’s ability to respond flexibly even in highly
volatile global markets.
New strategies are needed to adapt
production to increasingly complex market volatility, skilled talent shortages
and new sustainability requirements. To achieve this, we need to build a more
flexible production environment centered on smart manufacturing and advanced mechanical
engineering. The convergence of automation and IT technologies will accelerate
the transition from automated production to adaptive production.
In conclusion, the integration of IT and OT
plays a critical role in securing innovation and competitiveness in
manufacturing and preparing for the future by increasing the adaptability,
autonomy, and sustainability of industrial operations. Domestic companies will
be able to achieve better productivity and energy efficiency by utilizing
Siemens' know-how and solutions.
