Siemens and Bentley Systems in digital factory collaboration

A strategic collaboration between Siemens and Bentley Systems will aim to advance the integration of digital product design and manufacturing process design with information modelling for facilities lifecycle design.

The companies have signed a memorandum of understanding, under which they will deliver intelligent and sustainable digital factory infrastructure with an initial focus on automotive and discrete manufacturing.

To begin with, Siemens Industry Automation and Bentley will collaborate on common file formats and content, integrated workflows for factory layout and the convergence of process and layout.
