World Economic Forum’s Global Lighthouse Network nominates Industrial Excellence Award champion

Fifteen new manufacturing sites join the World Economic Forum’s Global Lighthouse Network today as leaders in applying Fourth Industrial Revolution technologies to achieve profitable growth without increasing their environmental footprint. Yet, another champion of our Industrial Excellence Award, i.e., Siemens in Amberg, is illuminating the future of manufacturing and the future of the industry.

Siemens (Amberg, Germany): To achieve its productivity goals, this site implemented a structured lean digital factory approach, deploying smart robotics, AI-powered process controls and predictive maintenance algorithms to achieve 140% factory output at double product complexity without an increase in electricity or a change in resources.
