Bring vision to life
A Digital Enablement Office acts as the “control tower” and is a joint Siemens-Microsoft approach to manage, deliver, and measure Siemens’ digital strategy.
6,000 labor hours saved
IoT and Bluetooth are used to reduce time spent by factory personnel to locate equipment to just minutes. A single facility has saved over 6000 hours in 1 year.
A new mindset
Siemens Gamesa is now using more data, more effectively to improve the accuracy of things like weather and wind turbine maintenance forecasting.
Adoption and change management play a crucial role
Siemens utilized the Microsoft Connected Innovation framework, which calls for manufacturers to rethink how people and operations, as well as technology, must adopt new ways of working to ensure digital success. This includes a transformation in the culture, workforce competencies, and daily operations.
Starting small to test strategy and approach
The Microsoft team worked with Siemens Gamesa to identify singular workloads on which the manufacturer could both develop and test its new strategies and approaches as well as demonstrate what success looks like to the rest of the organization.
