MG Motor India has partnered with Siemens to leverage digital technologies (including IoT, data analytics, Plant Simulation, and MindSphere) to increase productivity, save energy and cost, and reduce emissions & carbon footprint in its operations.
MG claims to have become the world’s first auto OEM to use MindSphere and Plant Simulation as a closed-loop digital twin. The software can connect plant assets and processes and provide insights into more streamlined paint processes, resulting in a 15% increase in the future pre-treatment and electrocoating paint process.
Ravi Mittal, Director, Manufacturing, MG Motor India, said, “MG is constantly evolving to meet rapidly changing requirements and provide innovative solutions by collaborating with ecosystem partners. Our partnership with Siemens is focused on industrial digitalization and intelligent manufacturing. It will strengthen our commitment to lowering carbon footprints, increasing production efficiency, and providing significant energy and cost-saving solutions.”
