Process industries academy initiative

July 3rd, 2018, Published in Articles: PositionIT

Siemens’ Process Industries and Drives and Digital Factories divisions are teaming up with Bentley Institute to establish a Process Industries Academy that will support the companies’ joint vision for cloud services and digital workflows in engineering and operations. The academy will help organisations to better understand and develop an effective digital strategy across all aspects of the asset lifecycle, based on the practical experience and knowledge of the industry’s experts. Fewer capital investments in greenfield projects, and an increased focus on optimising productivity, performance and utilisation of existing assets, have prompted the process industries to examine new ways to increase competitiveness and operating revenues. The academy will provide sessions focusing on real-world examples of the key aspects of a digital approach to capital project delivery and asset operations. Participants will discover how developing a clear digital strategy for improved collaboration, communication, and coordination between project teams creates an environment to optimise information creation and digital workflows. Process Industries Academies will be situated in Germany, the US and China to support the global process industry.
