Siemens PLM Software Recent Developments
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.
At the beginning of 2019, Siemens expanded the Digital Innovation Platform with the introduction of the latest version of NX software, which has been enhanced with machine learning and artificial intelligence capabilities. These new features can predict the next steps and update the user interface to help users more efficiently use software to increase productivity.
Siemens PLM Software Mergers and Acquisitions (M&A) Activities
In June 2020 Siemens has signed an agreement to acquire Cambridge, UK-based UltraSoC Technologies Ltd., a provider of instrumentation and analytics solutions that put intelligent monitoring, cybersecurity, and functional safety capabilities into the core hardware of system-on-chip (SoC). Siemens plans to integrate UltraSoC’s technology into the Xcelerator portfolio as part of Mentor’s Tessent software product suite. The addition of UltraSoC to Siemens enables a unified data-driven infrastructure that can enhance product quality, safety, and cybersecurity, and the creation of a comprehensive solution to help semiconductor industry customers overcome key pain points including manufacturing defects, software and hardware bugs, device early-failure and wear-out, functional safety, and malicious attacks.
The combination of Siemens and UltraSoC technology can benefit the entire semiconductor product lifecycle, including the structural, electrical, and functional capabilities of SoCs. It also supports Siemens’ comprehensive digital twin with UltraSoC providing monitoring of the real device.
In December 2018, Siemens acquired COMSA Computer und Software GmbH, a Munich-based company that develops software for electrical systems design and wire harness engineering.

Siemens PLM Software Risks and Challenges
Siemens PLM’s 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 PLM continues to show increased momentum because of its focus on PLM. The question is how Siemens PLM 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 PLM and are now being scrutinized for their value in an emergency situation.
