Siemens and Bentley Systems announce the Process Industries Academy
June 12, 2018 - The Siemens Divisions Process Industries and Drives (PD) and Digital Factory (DF) together with Bentley Systems and the Bentley Institute are driving digital enterprise forward over the entire life cycle by founding a Process Industries Academy. The Academy’s aim is to share best practice for plant engineering and operations. Academies are situated in the strategic locations of Karlsruhe, Germany (Siemens Process Automation World), Houston, Texas/USA (Bentley’s Digital Advancement Academy) and Shanghai, China (Siemens Process Industry Centre for Excellence) to support the global process industry. The first event will be held in the second half of 2018 at the Siemens Process Automation World in Karlsruhe.
2018年6月12日——西门子过程工业与驱动( PD )集团和数字化工厂( DF )集团联合宾利系统和宾利研究院，通过建立过程工业学院，推动数字化企业在整个生命周期中向前发展。学院的目标是分享工厂工程和运营的最佳实践。学院位于德国卡尔斯鲁厄(西门子过程自动化世界)、美国德克萨斯休斯顿 (宾利数字化推进学院)和中国上海(西门子过程工业卓越中心)的战略位置，以支持全球过程工业。首项活动将于2018年下半年在卡尔斯鲁厄西“门子过程自动化世界”举行。
In light of recent developments in process industries, for example, in the oil, gas and global energy markets and the subsequent effects on plant production, established working methods are under constant review across the whole plant life cycle. Less investment in green field projects and an increased focus on optimizing productivity, performance and utilization of existing plants are causing plant operators to search for new ways in which to increase competitiveness and operating revenue. A holistic approach to continuous improvement of underlying business processes must include consideration of the interaction between the available business resources as well as all employees involved in a project and the latest technology. An insight into how Bentley and Siemens are optimizing plant engineering and operation using cloud-based technologies was recently revealed in a white paper from ARC Advisory Group.
Based on experience and know-how from the leading experts in the field, the Process Industries Academy will provide training which will use practical examples to illustrate the significant elements of digitalization for more efficient planning and development as well as the successful operation of plants. Participants will experience how the development of a clear digital strategy improves collaboration, communication and coordination between the individual project teams and generates an ideal environment for optimizing the generation of information and digital workflows.
The Process Automation World training center, which was opened in Karlsruhe in 2017, is the location for the Process Industries Academy. Modern seminar rooms provide customers and users with the opportunity to receive training on a broad range of process analytics and instrumentation.
