Siemens is pioneering the Industrial Metaverse, leveraging AI, Machine Learning, and Edge. Computing. At the heart of this transformation is their mastery of Digital Twin technology, influencing areas from urban planning and infrastructure to manufacturing.  Peter Körte; CSO of Siemens, articulates this change: “The Industrial Metaverse is not a one-shot deal, but a game changer for businesses. It optimizes processes and speeds up innovations in industry – and will change substantially how companies collaborate and grow.”

Digital Twins have shown their worth in numerous innovative ventures. A case in point is the Siemensstadt Square project in Berlin and Expo 2020 in Dubai. Through these initiatives, Siemens deployed Digital Twins to convert complex real-world environments into dynamic digital models, enhancing urban planning and sustainability. In the realm of infrastructure, Siemens successfully used Digital Twins in the development of Egypt’s high-speed railway, leading to improvements in project management and execution.

Digital Twins have proven invaluable in manufacturing, as evidenced by the Siemens, Nanjing factory, and Unilever production line in the Middle East. By incorporating Digital Twins, the Nanjing factory achieved a 20% boost in productivity, a 30% increased manufacturing volume flexibility, and a 40% improvement in space efficiency. Meanwhile, Unilever, capitalizing on Digital Twins and 3D printing, reduced product launch time by nearly half and slashed capital expenditures by an astounding 70%. An excellent example of the Industrial Metaverse’s potential is the collaboration between Siemens, Nvidia, AWS, and other partners working with Freyr, a clean battery solutions provider.

Leveraging the Siemens Xcelerator portfolio, Freyr can model and optimize its battery plant operations before breaking ground. By embracing the Industrial Metaverse, Freyr will be equipped to enhance the monitoring and optimization of its plants in the future, thereby ensuring optimal efficiency and energy usage. Siemens further supports companies of all sizes in enabling and cultivating the Industrial Metaverse through the Siemens Xcelerator, a comprehensive digital business platform. With the Siemens Xcelerator, customers gain access to a robust ecosystem of partners and foundational technologies such as Digital Twins, AI, and Edge Computing. 

With its curated portfolio of software and IoT-enabled hardware, available as-a-service, the Siemens Xcelerator will help tremendously to accelerate industrial digitalization and general businesses’ transition into the Industrial Metaverse in particular.
