Log, Transfer, Analyze – Siemens Helps to Close the Gap Between Field and Cloud

May 20, 2019

Let sleeping dogs lie, they say. But would you also let sleeping or “stranded” data lie?

To date, 85% of the data produced by a sensor remains unused. So why let this potential slumber in the age of big data? The NAMUR Open Architecture (NOA) allows simplified access to this wealth of data and accelerates time to insight.

While the automation system and its function as central control instrument remains untouched by the NOA concept, a second data channel is being implemented. Destined for the collection of smart field device data and their routing into data collectors and cloud applications for further analysis, this alternate route for data offers real-time characteristics.

Thanks to this co-existence of existing proven-in-use structures and the new open standard, also Brownfield plants may be equipped with additional intelligence. The actual design of the solution – spanning from hardware to software and apps – is a service offered by Siemens. “It is our task to support and accompany our customers in transforming their processes into digital structures and ultimately reap the benefits offered by digitalization,” says Dr. Ralf Huck, head of R&D process instrumentation at Siemens.
