SiemensFebruary 5, 2018

Industry is advancing in giant strides towards digitalization and the utilization of IoT functions and applications. With MindSphere, Siemens has developed a cloud-based open IoT operating system with high performance capability to meet this growing demand.

Its aim is to expand the global reach of the ecosystem based on MindSphere. The organization is also designed to afford support to its individual members in developing and improving IoT solutions on the MindSphere platform and in tapping new markets in the digital economy. This will include suggestions about the requirements placed on the IoT operating system MindSphere by the industry and recommendations on setting out uniform rules for data utilization. Another role of the organization will be to promote science, research, and teaching in the MindSphere environment.

"The foundation of MindSphere World represents another major step forward in promoting the ecosystem surrounding MindSphere as an open IoT platform. The broad-based expertise and the offering of all the MindSphere World partners will open up totally new digitalization potential for users everywhere," said Member of the Managing Board of Siemens AG Klaus Helmrich.

The inaugural meeting of MindSphere World took place in the recently opened innovative development and work environment "MindSphere OpenSpace", a part of the new branch of Factory Berlin. Over an office space of more than 13,000 square meters, Factory Berlin – an initiative supported by the German Government, Siemens and other companies – brings established technology companies together with developers and startups. The key focus of the new startup campus is the Internet of Things. On the threshold of the age of digitalization, the "MindSphere OpenSpace" creates ideal conditions for the MindSphere World members and other users such as startups to drive forward the development of apps and digital services and to tap whole new markets.

Jan Mrosik, Chair of the Management Board of MindSphere World and CEO of the Siemens Digital Factory Division, added: "By bringing together a worldwide community comprising industrial and IT companies of all sizes from all sectors of industry as well as startups, we aim to establish and drive forward an eco-system based on MindSphere. With this end in mind, the Association members are joining to form MindSphere World – initially in Germany and then extending out into the international arena."

The members of the organization meet in committees to deal with issues such as the requirements placed on MindSphere by industry, data governance concepts and the Assocation's PR work. "MindSphere's open structure offers a wide range of benefits for us as users, in particular due to the manufacturer-independent link-up of machines and plants and also when it comes to the development of apps. Within the framework of MindSphere World, we can now also talk to other users about ways in which disruptive technologies are changing the face of the economy in general, and about the resulting business potential which could be utilized for IoT-based solutions," said Bruno Geiger, Member of the Management Board of MindSphere World and COO/CTO of Eisenmann.

"Because the development of standards plays a decisive role when it comes to establishing a worldwide ecosystem, the members of MindSphere World will be working together to come up with recommendations for standards in relation to MindSphere-based apps. We'll also be drawing up suggested solutions for enabling interoperability between different MindSphere-based solutions," said Andreas Oroszi, Member of the Board of Management of MindSphere World and Senior Vice President Digital Business at Festo.

The founder members of "MindSphere World" alongside Siemens AG include the companies: ASM Assembly Systems GmbH & Co. KG, CHIRON Group SE, Eisenmann SE, Festo AG & Co. KG, Gebr. Heller Maschinenfabrik GmbH, Grob-Werke GmbH & Co. KG, Heitec AG, Index-Werke GmbH & Co. KG, J. Schmalz GmbH, Kampf Schneid- und Wickeltechnik GmbH & Co. KG, Kolbus GmbH & Co. KG, Kuka Aktiengesellschaft, FFG Europe & Americas (MAG IAS GmbH), Nordischer Maschinenbau Rud. Baader GmbH +Co. KG, Rittal GmbH & Co. KG, Sick AG, Trumpf Werkzeugmaschinen GmbH + Co. KG, Michael Weinig AG.

SmartBag Grouping is Live at YVR

SmartBag Grouping

Brock Solutions is happy to announce that SmartBag Grouping has successfully gone live at Vancouver International Airport. SmartBag Grouping provides YVR a tool for managing their Manual Early Bag Storage. The tool uses real-time data and allows users to create groups for baggage based on criteria such as time, flight, and airline. Critical information is delivered to baggage handlers in the field when they need it, on their handheld device, or on an information display.

Baggage is handled more efficiently during loading, and tracking information can be shared with other authorized SmartSuite users.
