The digitization of the manufacturing industry is a global issue. By generating a digital image of the entire value chain, the “digital twin” enables idea generation and optimization in the virtual world.
The handling of materials and semi-finished products is of essential importance in this scenario. Standardized material information is an indispensable part of the central “PLM data backbone”.
Thanks to the Siemens IMM – “Integrated Material Management” solution, this critical material data is no longer scattered at different locations in data silos within an organisation. The established PLM system is enabled to provide the digital twin with consolidated material information from a central and unique source.
Through the complete integration into your product development process, all participants in the process context have the material information relevant to them. And this with all required parameters and attributes, e.g. for correct material handling, technologies, sustainability, substance compliance, visualization, production, etc.
