Siemens Industrial Copilot is an AI-powered assistant that aims to enhance human-machine collaboration in manufacturing

Siemens, in collaboration with Microsoft, unveiled a development for controls engineers working on machinery in factories and plants. The companies introduced Siemens Industrial Copilot, an artificial intelligence (AI)-powered assistant that aims to enhance human-machine collaboration in manufacturing. This innovation is part of the integration between Siemens Teamcenter PLM and Microsoft Teams, contributing to the concept of the industrial metaverse by streamlining virtual collaboration across business functions.

Siemens Industrial Copilot offers controls engineers the ability to rapidly generate, optimize and debug complex automation code, significantly reducing simulation times from weeks to minutes. It leverages information from Siemens Xcelerator and enhances it with Microsoft's Azure OpenAI Service, enabling maintenance technicians to use natural language for detailed repair instructions and engineers to access simulation tools swiftly. The collaboration ensures that users maintain full control over their data without using it to train underlying AI models, providing a secure solution for controls engineers in manufacturing.

One notable example of Siemens Industrial Copilot's impact is Schaeffler AG, an automotive supplier, which uses the system to help its engineers generate reliable code for programming industrial automation systems, including robots. Schaeffler plans to incorporate the technology into its production operations to reduce unplanned downtime. This development holds the promise of ushering in a new age of productivity and innovation, enabling teams to work more efficiently, reduce repetitive tasks, and foster creativity in their processes.
