Excellent, Siemens!

Thinking ahead of the future of the industry, that is the maxim of Siemens Digital Industries. The partner and Daimler Supplier Award winner continues to offer solutions for Daimler's automobile production – even with tight deadlines and high demands on quality, on-time delivery and flexibility.

The Siemens AG and Daimler AG partnership dates back 50 years. Its start was marked by the first SIMATIC control system for the automation of the Daimler automobile production. Today, the business division ‘Siemens Digital Industries’ not only delivers innovative hardware and automation components for Daimler’s worldwide production network but also a vast variety of production concepts and service from a single source – in the procurement division International Procurement Services of Daimler AG, the portfolio ranges from software and digitalization including development and consultation regarding electrical installations and electrical control systems for buildings and production lines to planning and implementation of production plants and Facility Management concepts to power plant technology.

Siemens AG has been an excellent partner of Daimler AG for decades. In the production, you have provided us with a broad variety of high-quality systemic solutions worldwide. Together, we are developing Industry 4.0 – always in search of the best solutions.

Andreas Burkhart, Head of International Procurement Services, Daimler AG.

Driving forces for the automobile production of tomorrow

Siemens has developed an in-depth understanding of Daimler’s specific requirements on industrial automation and digitization. The experienced partner continues to deliver solutions time and time again, such as driverless transport systems, systems for automobile assembly and production technologies for body and powertrain manufacturing. What’s special about that? Each of the concepts are well thought through with a foresight far into the future for the Daimler Production Planners and, in addition to that, the implementation is flexible, on-time and of high quality. Siemens thereby continues to combine machines, humans and management performance resulting in reliable solutions of excellent quality.

Teamwork will be a driver of innovation motor in the future as well

By using digital technologies, Daimler can run its production with even more flexibility and more efficiently and thereby optimally address the diverse customer demands. And we are thinking far into the future: This is how Siemens designs an innovative master control for the driverless transport system, which is intended to centrally organize and monitor the route guidance of the automatically guided vehicles, the management of the transport orders as well as the technical vehicle states. A complex task, for which Daimler and Siemens will launch a solution.
