Part 12 of Siemens’ Digital Twin Webinar Series: MES and Enterprise Systems


Reading time ( words)

I-007e Micro Webinars recently released a free, on-demand series titled “Implementing Digital Twin Best Practices From Design Through Manufacturing.” Each of the 12 segments can be viewed in about five minutes.

Have you ever wondered what digital twin is, how it's used, and its benefits? Are you interested in learning ways to optimize and streamline how data flows from design, production planning, process engineering, and manufacturing? Then this micro webinar series is for you!

Throughout this 12-part series, Jay Gorajia from Siemens Digital Industries Software describes how to leverage the digital twin concept—from design to production planning and process engineering—through manufacturing execution and supply chain. The goal of the series is to define a blueprint for organizations seeking to digitalize and optimize their design to manufacturing processes and manufacturing operations.

To conclude the series, in Part 12, Gorajia discusses, “Integrating Valor Solutions as Part of MES and Enterprise Systems." Why are manufacturing execution systems so important in the drive toward smart manufacturing? Occupying the middle ground between the shop floor and the enterprise, MES plays a broad role in the digital factory. This webinar will describe the functions of the MES and compare an integrated approach to standalone point solutions.

With the growing availability of business data comes a growing gap in the ability to make use of the information. To transform raw data into actionable analytics, information needs to be formatted in a way that provides insight into the correlations between seemingly disparate datasets.” This webinar shows how big data is transformed into smart data that can be used to drive process improvement in the factory.

Expert Gorajia has worked with hundreds of design and manufacturing organizations around the world, driving real improvements in cost, throughput, and quality over his 27 years in the industry. Viewers will learn how best to optimize throughput, cost, and quality as organizations embark on the digitalization journey.

The entire digital twin webinar series can be viewed in just over an hour and covers a comprehensive range of hot topics, including insights from manufacturing to improve and optimize future designs, as well as how to digitalize our factory to optimize even further.

Preparing the Next-gen Tech Workforce

05/18/2022 | Marc Carter, Independent Contributor
Knowledge transfer, especially from the “graying-out” experienced technical workers in our industry, is a complex, difficult family of problems. It differs wildly between companies, and even within divisions of the same company. One of the biggest barriers is the full manufacturing schedules in North American electronics companies that don’t leave any slack time—and the 40-hour work week is a complete fantasy for many.

Are Your Existing Machines Enough to Keep Up?

05/04/2022 | Jennifer Davis, Arch Systems
Buy new or make do? It’s an age-old debate for manufacturers who are trying to decide how best to manage machine assets inside their manufacturing facilities. New machines are expensive, but so is operating existing machines at a comparative deficit.

Finding Solutions in the Quoting Process

05/03/2022 | Duane Benson, Screaming Circuits
It’s easy to frame all our supply chain woes around the COVID-19 pandemic. However, at Screaming Circuits, we started receiving dire warnings about component shortages in early 2018. At that time, we were told that the supply upheaval could last years and that we should expect it to get much worse before it got better. Now, four years later, I would say those warnings nailed it.
