The challenge: Mastering supply chain complexity & disruption

Today’s supply chains are facing unprecedented challenges.  Volatility at multiple tiers especially in complex value chains often disrupts operations. Increasing geopolitical, environmental and security risks, threaten production and supply chain stability. As a result, companies need solutions that empower them to balance cost, risk, sustainability, and quality goals.

The Siemens solution: combining integrated design and manufacturing with “Shift Left” supply chain

Traditional supply chain network design often fails to consider the bigger picture. At Siemens, we believe in „Design for Supply Chain” though our “Shift Left” strategy. This approach brings supply chain considerations directly into the product development process, for improved sourcing and more robust and resilient logistics operations.

For companies struggling with limited supply chain visibility and effectiveness, the Siemens Xcelerator portfolio and ecosystem offer a powerful solution.  Our suite of digital tools provides unprecedented levels of:

  • Supply visibility: Gain a single, clear view of your entire internal and external supply chain.
  • Collaboration across silos: Break down barriers and foster seamless communication between product design, engineering, sourcing, and manufacturing teams.
  • Data-driven decision making: Leverage real-time data and insights to make informed choices that balance cost, risk, sustainability, and quality goals.

Our goal is to empower your organization to improve the lifecycle margin and sustainability of your entire product portfolio. By designing for supply chain, you can proactively address structural costs and mitigate risks.

A comprehensive digital twin strategy

Siemens has a long history of successfully integrating product design and manufacturing processes. Now, we’re extending this philosophy to encompass the entire supply chain.  This approach is essential for achieving excellence in both supply chain management and product development.

With a comprehensive digital twin of Design, Manufacturing and Supply Chain, companies can encompass the entire product lifecycle, including relevant data context between all supply chain participants. 

This “digital thread” empowers product design teams to make smarter decisions that optimize cost, risk, sustainability, and quality across the entire design-source-make-deliver continuum.
