MG Motor and Siemens join hands to create digital solutions for sustainability
MG Motor has partnered with Siemens to build cutting-edge digital technologies for IoT, plant simulation, data analytics and MindSphere to increase productivity, save energy as well as cost and help in the reduction of emissions and carbon footprints in its operations.
MG Motor also shared that it became the first auto OEM in the world to use MindSphere and plant simulation as a closed-loop digital operation. This software will help in connecting plant assets and processes. This will also help in providing insights into a more streamlined paint process which will result in a 15 per cent increase in the pre-treatment and electrocoating paint process in the future.
