Ingenuity for life

From inventiveness to Ingenuity for life

For almost 170 years we have been finding ways to improve life in many areas. With our passion for technology, we set new standards and push the limits of technology to create sustainable value – for society, for our customers and for each individual. Our company founder Werner von Siemens would have called this "inventiveness". Today we prefer to call it "ingenuity". Ingenuity for life.

Innovations that improve life. For our customers, for society and for every single one of us. This is what drives us and this is what we promise. This is ingenuity for life.

Ingenuity for life ensures a solid foundation for a strong economy, by mastering the challenges of today's energy landscape. For example, today's intelligent technologies ensure a stable power supply by managing fluctuations from wind and solar energy sources.

Ingenuity for life provides industry with a bright future. Mass production thus becomes so flexible that it can even fulfill the most individual of requirements. For example, through the digitalization of the whole production process.

Ingenuity for life makes our cities more livable and appealing, by making them more efficient and environmentally friendly, and by improving the punctuality of services. For example, intelligent networking and control of traffic signals give priority to buses and emergency vehicles.

Together with our customers we tackle the many challenges that face our society. Through our expertise in the areas of electrification, automation and digitalization, we improve the lives of people today and create lasting value for future generations.

This is what drives us and this is what we promise. This is Ingenuity for life.

Future of manufacturing

Faster and more flexible production

Digitalization is dramatically transforming manufacturing. Both process and discrete industries are benefitting from seamless integration of data from product development, production and supply chain. This helps manufacturers to respond flexibly to the specific needs of their customers.

Satisfying individual customer demands and strengthening industry around the world

Competition for industrial enterprises is more intense than ever. Digitalization is putting manufacturing processes on a new track: Plants, products and machines will become more and more networked in an integrated value chain. The main challenges for discrete and process industry are the same: shorten time-to-market, increase flexibility and efficiency.

More and more customers today desire customized products that are affordable, and yet still manufactured to a professional standard and delivered in a timely manner. In order to fulfill these expectations, industrial manufacturers and SMEs must produce goods with a high degree of flexibility and manage the whole process from ordering, product development, production and delivery.

Siemens’ innovations enable manufacturers to upgrade to the latest digital product development and production methods. As a result, companies can significantly improve flexibility and speed, and thus increase customer satisfaction.

Increased efficiency


Industry is responsible for ¼ of the energy used worldwide.

Shorter time to market


The lifecycle of products has dropped by 25% in the last 15 years.

Enhanced flexibility


Over the past 15 years, the range of different products has more than doubled.


Efficient production thanks to the multi-carrier transport system

Quick and efficient — or customized and flexible? Manufacturing consumer goods used to be a strictly “either/or“ proposition. Well, thanks to Siemens technology and software this dilemma is a thing of the past. Find out how manufacturers are already benefiting.

Intelligent infrastructure

Optimizing infrastructure

Sensors, software and control systems are the hallmarks of intelligent infrastructure: making traffic flow smoother, reducing energy consumption, protecting the environment and ensuring cities are attractive places to live and do business in.

Economies and cities need to be competitive and provide a high quality of life.

A functioning infrastructure is the backbone of cities and entire economies. It provides mobility, energy, water, security and a high quality of life. Local and national governments must ensure that infrastructures support both current and future demands. Intelligent infrastructures ensure efficient and reliable delivery of essential services.

Intelligent building management increases security and comfort through IT and automation. In addition it optimizes energy production and consumption in buildings.

Smart, integrated mobility systems ensure high capacity utilization and availability – at lower costs. What's more, people benefit from greater convenience, safety and punctuality.

For economies and cities with limited funds, intelligent technologies are a fast and efficient manner to optimize existing infrastructures. Siemens can help unlock the potential by providing innovative financing solutions.
