Siemens Energy application engineers leveraged metaphactory's low-code approach to build a smart turbine spare parts application that allows turbine service engineers to save thousands of hours on manual effort.
Gas turbines of Siemens Energy are used worldwide in different environments and with customer specific configurations. Managing a broad variety of spare parts and configurations for each turbine is a challenge. metaphactory and Amazon Neptune enabled Siemens Energy to build a Turbine Knowledge Graph and visualize the connections between similar parts across the entire fleet of large gas turbines.
Siemens AG is one of the leading providers of factory automation solutions and components as well as Manufacturing Execution Systems and Product Lifecycle Management Software. To support human manufacturing planners and line operators in their daily tasks and increase the autonomy of production machinery, the research group for "Semantics and Reasoning" of Siemens Corporate Technology initiated a Manufacturing Knowledge Graph leveraging metaphactory. The goal was to test the feasibility of Smart Manufacturing Planning and Smart Manufacturing Execution concepts utilizing semantic technology. For this, the team created a Manufacturing Knowledge Graph to capture heterogeneous data sources and expert knowledge and built an AI-based knowledge graph application to automate the allocation of suitable production equipment.
The feasibility studies conducted proved that:
Aiming to support engineers in developing and introducing new materials for production, Bosch is building a knowledge graph that exposes material science knowledge and supplies high-quality answers about existing materials in a timely manner.
In a paper presented at the ISWC 2019 Industry Track, Bosch describes how the knowledge graph integrates information stored across multiple sources, and how metaphactory is used to satisfy complex query needs through a user-friendly interface for standard keyword search and semantic-based faceted search.
