Digitalisation is the best way to get a taste of the future

Digitalisation is the best way to get a taste of the future
By definition, the food and beverage industry is fast moving and always changing; milk goes off, bread gets eaten, and we want to eat more salads in the summer. But the combination of changing consumer demand, increasing regulation, complex supply chains for global sourcing and distribution, and competition from agile new competitors means food and beverage companies have to move faster than ever.

Make an impact in the real world with Digital Twins

Make an impact in the real world with Digital Twins
Models so accurate they’re a digital twin of the product you’re creating can help you throughout the design and development process. 1D models can help you determine the best architecture for your multi-physics system, 3D models can help you design into the details, and testing can help you improve modelling realism. By Zvi Feuer, Senior Vice President, Manufacturing Engineering Solutions at Siemens and Zvika Weissman, Industries & Production Management Director at Siemens Industry.
