Cooperation on digitalising and structuring organisational knowledge for drive systems
One of the key levers to accomplish this resides in the transactional availability and exploitability of organisational knowledge in any form over their product-lifecycle of drive systems to facilitate collaboration, answer technical or commercial questions, expedite evidence-based decisions and back-up triggered operational activities.
Knowledge graphs are a form of knowledge representation. They represent a comprehensible and explainable form of artificial intelligence. Knowledge graphs create links and relations and enable models on which humans and computers can operate equally thus enlarging the capability to explore relationships and infer insights.
Easily accessible and automatically reusableThe cooperation of Siemens Large Drives Applications and Empolis targets to further strengthen the foundation for insight generation in SIDRIVE IQ – the digital platform for drive systems & solutions of Siemens. With the power of knowledge graphs at the core of Empolis Intelligent Views Platform already existing data in documents, applications or employees’ minds becomes progressively available, easily accessible and automatically reusable.
“With this we are tapping into the opportunity to generate, manage, connect and trustfully share information in knowledge-intensive processes across the product life-cycle of our drive systems. This has a transformative power to augment our business activities on many dimensions such as service quality or process efficiency and consistency,” says Sebastian Winkler von Mohrenfels, head of LDA Digital Business.
The integration of Empolis Intelligent Views Platform will not only surface existing organisational knowledge which are key for experts’ daily work in various disciplines such as customer service or R&D. It will also help to gain structured, and standardised data that can be relied on for the enhancement of IoT services and contextualisation of AI-based features such as chatbots or automated root-cause analysis.
A single information source of truth“Consolidating, structuring, and facilitating an organisation’s entire knowledge and establishing a central knowledge management provides a single information source of truth and opens a variety of opportunities for user self-service and data service automation. This empowers knowledge workers and boosts informed decision making,” states Andreas Klüter, Co-CEO & CTO, Empolis.
SIDRIVE IQ is a holistic IoT-solution and services for smart fleet management of drive systems & solutions. With SIDIRVE IQ reliability, performance and serviceability of drive systems are holistically manageable throughout the product lifecycle. This means, the drive system is not limited any more to its natural physical boundaries and linear purpose in the operations process. It is extended by automated capabilities of AI, digital content and enabled virtual collaboration - anytime, anywhere. This translates into leverage on operational risk exposure, asset life-time extension and eventually an impact on financial performance.https://www.siemens.com/sidrive-iq
