Sight Machine Inc. and Siemens AG announced a partnership bringing manufacturing AI to on-premises automation networks. Sight Machine's Manufacturing Data Platform is an end-to-end software system for collecting, contextualizing, and analyzing all types of manufacturing data to improve production. It enables manufacturers to unlock the power of industrial data to increase profitability, productivity, and sustainability.

Siemens Industrial Edge is an edge computing platform consisting of applications, OT and IT connectivity, devices, and a central management system. It enables users to centrally manage connected devices and software across machines, lines, and plants to easily and securely deploy applications at scale. Industrial Edge enables improved shop-floor productivity, improved data efficiency, reduced data latency, enhanced data privacy and security, and ultimately, better business decision-making.

Bringing Sight Machine's advanced data models and analytics into on-premises systems opens the opportunity for software-defined automation and closed-loop systems. Sight Machine's software analyzes the entire history of production runs to determine the best settings for the current conditions. These Dynamic Recipes are available to guide operators to integrate with control systems for automated optimization. Sight Machine is now a certified Industrial Edge Solution Partner of Siemens Digital Industries Factory Automation.

For manufacturers building hybrid edge-cloud systems, Sight Machine on Siemens Industrial Edge enables easy integration of AI-ready data from the factory floor and traditional IT data stacks for improved business and production decisions.
