Siemens Manage MyMachines

Siemens’ Manage MyMachines, one of the MindApps within the Mindsphere concept, is a cloud-based platform as a service enabling full tracking of machine kinematics as well as production data. The platform is marketed by Siemens as an entry point to shop digitalization. Machine shops and production departments, in conjunction with their system integrators and other business partners, can benefit from the platform’s transparent display of all CNC equipment on the floor regardless of location, brand, function or usage.

Manage MyMachines provides access to critical machine tool information, from bearing temperature to production by shift or job, scaled based on user needs. Unexpected line downtimes and off-normal machine kinematic conditions can be quickly identified and rectified. Predictive maintenance can be programmed such that an upcoming failure can be anticipated, with alerts sent, for example, to a local distributor for delivery of needed components. 

As a MindApp within the Mindsphere portfolio, Manage MyMachines is integrated into a cloud-based, open operating system. As a result, the software enables complete asset management through the app in real time.

    MTConnect agents and their corresponding device adapters are simply small computer programs that work together so that MTConnect can make shop equipment and networks more readily connectible. In a nutshell, adapters enable existing shopfloor devices “to speak MTConnect,” and agents enable MTConnect messages and data files to be transmitted across a network to MTConnect-compatible applications.
