Siemens adds real-time supply chain intelligence to its Xcelerator offering

June 13, 2023
The integrated solutions promise customers real-time visibility into global component availability, demand, cost and compliance.

Siemens Digital Industries Software announced that it is integrating the Supplyframe Design-to-Source Intelligence platform with its Siemens Xcelerator portfolio of software and services to bring robust real-time supply chain intelligence to the world’s most comprehensive digital-twin technology.

Starting with the incorporation of the Supplyframe Design-to-Source Intelligence platform with Siemens’ Xpedition software for electronic-systems design, the fully integrated solution, available now, facilitates supply chain resilience by providing real-time visibility into global component availability, demand, cost, compliance and associated parametric data at the point of design.The new solution can help customers reduce costs, increase agility, and make better, more highly informed component decisions at the point of design, per Siemens. By synchronizing data from the product-lifecycle management (PLM) and electronics computer aided design (ECAD) domains, the solution enables engineering organizations to streamline the selection, creation and management of components during electronic systems design.“This new solution is a game changer for our OEM customers, who have faced extraordinary challenges in recent years due to a complicated set of dynamic market forces,” said AJ Incorvaia, senior vice president of Electronic Board Systems at Siemens Digital Industries Software. “Global supply chains have become increasingly unpredictable due to unprecedented geopolitical developments, globally distributed organizations and suppliers, and ever-growing pressure to develop highly complex new products and bring them to market quickly. By leveraging the industry-leading capabilities of Supplyframe's Design-to-Source Intelligence platform together with Siemens' industry-leading Xpedition software for electronic systems design, we are equipping our customers with the tools and technologies to compete and thrive in the face of these challenges."Siemens‘ new, integrated offering promises a range of compelling functionalities and use cases for engineering organizations developing next-generation PCB designs, including: Push-button access to detailed component intelligence on 600 million manufacturer part numbers, which can empower engineers to make more informed part decisions and tradeoffs when the cost of change is lowest, claims Siemens.
