Embracing the digital world for optimised drug manufacturing
Located at the company's facilities in Manchester, Siemens' Digital Experience Centre is a showcase of its offering in digital services, which have the potential to transform the manufacturing processes of pharmaceuticals into the ‘Industry 4.0’ era.
By utilizing a range of technologies including artificial intelligence, cloud services, virtual and augmented reality, and optical character recognition, Siemens aims to optimize and facilitate the operation of manufacturing equipment, allowing customers to reduce time, effort, and costs.
