Siemens Digital Industries Software Recent Developments
In April 2021, Siemens introduced PCBflow, an innovative cloud-based software solution which bridges the gap between the electronics design and manufacturing ecosystems. PCBflow extends Siemens’ Xcelerator portfolio with a secure environment for printed circuit board (PCB) design teams to interact with a variety of manufacturers, and by rapidly performing a range of design-for-manufacturing (DFM) analyses in the context of each manufacturers’ process capabilities, which helps customers accelerate design-to-production handoff. In May 2021, Siemens Digital Industries Software introduced Xcelerator Academy, a new unified approach to developing the skills of users, implementers and developers during their digital transformation journeys with the Xcelerator™ portfolio. This global training offering uses state-of-the-art tools, high-quality curriculum, world class instructors, and easy to access virtual and physical campuses to address the role-based needs of both customers and partners. Xcelerator Academy can help businesses realize value from technology-driven process improvement by providing users with the skills needed to accelerate product proficiency and solution adoption.
In September 2021, Siemens introduced new mPower™ power integrity software for analog, digital and mixed signal IC designs. It is the industry’s first and only IC power integrity verification solution to provide virtually unlimited scalability for analog, digital, and mixed signal ICs, enabling comprehensive power, electromigration (EM) and voltage drop (IR) analysis for even the largest IC designs. Siemens also launched Xcelerator as a Service (XaaS). Xcelerator enables innovative product design and manufacturing via robust digital threads that ensures data is accessible when and where it is needed. Through a comprehensive digital twin, organizations optimize their products and processes throughout the lifecycle. While many companies claim to offer a digital twin, only Siemens has the toolset, domain knowledge and usage expertise to deliver the comprehensive digital twin with the fidelity and breadth that manufacturers need to thrive in a world of complexity and deliver the innovation that customers and the market demand.
In June 2020 Siemens and IBM formed a partnership to deliver a new solution, Service Lifecycle Management (SLM) of assets by dynamically connecting real-world maintenance activities and asset performance back to design decisions and field modifications. This new solution establishes an end-to-end digital thread between equipment manufacturers and the owner/operators of that equipment by leveraging elements of the Xcelerator portfolio from Siemens Digital Industries Software and IBM Maximo. The integration of asset management and product lifecycle management (PLM) technology can help owner/operators to stay up to date. The solution also enables OEMs to receive critical data about asset performance, maintenance, and failures in the field. Leveraging IoT technology, manufacturers can gain insights on wear and tear, operating conditions, parts failures, and other patterns that lead to design or manufacturing updates. This data can be used to help manufacturers lower maintenance costs, reduce risks, and improve asset resiliency.
In October 2019, Siemens Digital Industries Software unveiled new Simcenter system simulation solutions, designed to help industries meet the need for more accurate and competitive system modeling. Simcenter system simulation model authoring tools bring together Simcenter Amesim software, a simulation platform for mechatronic systems, and Simcenter Flomaster software, a vertical solution for thermo-fluid systems of any size and complexity. Simcenter system simulation solutions 2019 offer an improved user experience, allowing for more scalability and reduced turnaround time on modeling, as well as increased openness and interoperability.

Siemens Digital Industries Software Risks and Challenges
Siemens Digital Industries migration to the cloud is a work in progress especially for its ability to incorporate its partner ecosystem into the equation for multitenancy delivery in the public cloud. Compared with other industrials giants, Siemens has made digital transformation its top priority and it seems to be in better shape than others. Unlike its rivals like GE and ABB, Siemens Digital Industries continues to show increased momentum because of its focus on PLM. The question is how Siemens Digital Industries can sustain customer interest amid the pandemic as many of its customers are struggling with supply chain problems that could be attributed to the lean inventory and rapid product development cycle. These are attributes that once were being promoted heavily by Siemens Digital Industries and are now being scrutinized for their value in an emergency situation.
