Unlocking the power of Digital Manufacturing with Opcenter X

By Alessandro Cereseto

In today’s fast-paced and disruptive business environment, digital transformation has become essential for small- and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) in the part manufacturing industry. To address the growing complexity of product and process management, disruptive technologies, supply chain volatility, and tightening margins, SMBs need a new approach to manufacturing operations management (MOM). Siemens Digital Industries Software is pioneering a modular MOM solution, Opcenter X, that empowers SMBs to embark on a stepwise digital transformation journey.

The Urgent Need for Digitalization

SMB manufacturers are facing an existential imperative to digitalize their manufacturing operations. The traditional paper-based, spreadsheet, or homegrown solutions are becoming increasingly unworkable in managing today’s challenges, such as new product introductions, customization demands, quality requirements, regulatory compliance, volatile supply chains, and tightening margins. A modularized solution offers the necessary tools and capabilities to address these challenges and drive digital transformation.

Benefits of modularization in MOM

Opcenter X, built with cloud technologies and offered as software as a service (SaaS), lowers the time and cost barriers for SMBs to adopt MOM capabilities. Its modular approach allows companies to start small and scale up as their digital enterprise matures.

By connecting and adapting modules, SMBs can achieve rapid return-on-investment (ROI) while benefiting from reduced time-to-market, ease of use, flexibility, and up-to-date functionality. Opcenter X is part of the Siemens Xcelerator business platform, which integrates software, hardware, and services.

The Value of MOM Digital Transformation

Implementing a MOM solution offers numerous benefits for SMB manufacturers. It enables companies to optimize manufacturing processes, reduce costs, ensure consistent product quality, and automatically trace and document everything.

A MOM solution goes beyond traditional manufacturing execution systems (MES) by managing production planning and scheduling, quality, and manufacturing intelligence/data analytics.
