Siemens is committed to support digital transformation in the industry sector with sustainability technologies and innovations. In fiscal 2022, Siemens products and solutions helped enterprises around the globe avoid approximately 150 million tons of carbon emissions.
As the industry sector faces economic volatility, supply chain disruptions, and skilled labor shortage, the adoption of digital technologies is crucial for driving operations and ensuring a sustainable future in response to climate change.
The food and beverage industry is one of the key sectors facing production and environmental challenges due to the growing global population. Food production and packaging alone account for approximately 30% of the world’s greenhouse gas emissions(1) and consume about 70% of the world’s freshwater supply(2).
In Thailand, the food and beverage industry plays a critical role in the country’s overall economy. According to Statista’s data as of March 2023, the Manufacturing Production Index (MPI) ranks the food products sector of Thailand as the third highest (119.17 points), following the sectors of basic pharmaceutical products and pharmaceutical preparations (132.28 points), while machinery and industrial equipment rank first (142 points).
At ProPak Asia 2023, Siemens showcases cutting-edge solutions that accelerate digital transformation, enabling increased production speed, flexibility, and adaptability while minimizing resource consumption and environmental impact.
Siemens at ProPak Asia 2023 to experience the following highlights:
- Vertical Farming: Revolutionization of food production towards sustainability by minimizing water usage (95% less water used compared to traditional farming), maximizing productivity (300x as much produce per square foot), reducing carbon footprint, and generating less waste. This solution operates on 100% renewable energy and eliminates the need for pesticides.
- Opcenter Advanced Planning and Scheduling (APS) Software: The complexity of today’s production planning often leads to mistakes, which negatively impact productivity and timely delivery of goods. Opcenter APS Software streamlines the planning and scheduling process, resulting in increased productivity, reduced inventory, and improved ontime delivery. It can serve as the starting point for driving digital transformation within manufacturing organizations.
- Industrial 5G wireless network: Specifically designed for industrial use, the solution provides high-speed, ultra reliability and ultra-low latency (as low as 1 millisecond), exceptional stability, and robust security to support a range of industrial applications, including for example mobile robots, autonomous logistics, and automated guided vehicles (AGVs). These solutions enable seamless communication among devices, sensors, and systems in both Information Technology (IT) and Operational Technology (OT) environments. This facilitates real-time data exchange and supports Machine-Type Communications (mMTC) capabilities, allowing for the deployment of a large number of IoT devices, further enhancing data collection and analysis.
