-Atos-Siemens Alliance capitalizes on strategic alliance by expanding Industry 4.0 to create and deliver successful solutions to major manufacturing businesses

SINGAPORE /PRNewswire/ — Atos, an international leader in digital services, together with Siemens, a global engineering powerhouse, set new benchmarks for the optimization and continuous evolution of the manufacturing sector.

Following the recent biennial “Siemens Process Industries and Drives User Conference & Exhibition” (SPACe) inBali, Indonesia, from August 19-21, 2015, the Atos-Siemens Alliance now intends to raise industry standards by expanding Industry 4.0 to achieve strong production-related advantages, creating networked, flexible and dynamically self-organizing manufacturing processes for highly customizable products.

Industry 4.0 is a collective term embracing a number of contemporary automation, data exchange and manufacturing technologies. It facilitates the vision and execution of a “Smart Factory”. The aim is to shift the reliance on manpower amongst manufacturing companies especially in the secondary sector of emerging economies, to a technology-based approach. In today’s rapidly changing and digitalized global business environment, it is crucial for manufacturers to maintain their competitive edge by embracing innovative technologies and optimizing productivity. As customers and markets demand more from manufacturers, the factories at the center of their production and delivery models need to perform with the highest efficiency.

Herbie Leung, CEO APAC said, “Our collaboration with Siemens is important to the continuous development and thereby digitalization via Industry 4.0. As the world’s business environment evolves, it is critical that we work together to innovate change so that manufacturers perform seamlessly and maintain their efficiency.”

With manufacturing still a major market in Asia Pacific, Industry 4.0 is expected to demonstrate its full potential to drive mass customization with more customer-centric and efficient production environments. The convergence of information technology (IT) and operational technology (OT), resulting in cyber physical systems (CPS) will be the foundation of the next Generation of Manufacturing.
