Siemens on: Digitalization for transforming data into value
Siemens is a company that addressed the vital issue of how to meet consumers’ high demands that come with online sales. According to the German industrial conglomerate that answer is in data and digitalization.
At the Bike Europe Conference Siemens will explain that digitalization brings ideas and processes together to form a unified digital enterprise. Its software makes it possible to produce faster; to produce more and to produce more customized products.
According to Siemens “The future of manufacturing is about transforming data into value and to use it through software in all operating processes. Digitalization is a must. To become a digital company start with a top-down approach. Select one operating process that needs to improve; for instance R&D. Start there with the manageable digitalization of your company at limited costs. But realize it as it’s the start of a turnaround.”
DST: Dutch uniform bicycle product coding standard now ready for European markets
To efficiently digitalize the operating processes of the bicycle sector using a system with uniform product coding could form the basis. Dutch DST, which stands for “Digitale Samenwerking Tweewielerbranche” or Digital Cooperation Two-Wheeler Industry, will explain the development of their uniform bicycle product coding standard.
The DST presentation will of course also delve deep into the benefits their uniform product coding for 180,000 products from over 40 suppliers, is bringing. It’s now in use at dealers in Holland and Belgium that use these codes for their online presentations, cash register and shop systems.” The Dutch uniform bicycle product coding standard is now ready for the European markets.
Bidex: Bike Data Exchange
Another keynote presentation on data and digitalization will come from Bidex which stands for Bike Data Exchange.
Bidex is a German consortium aimed at for instance creating enhanced standards for data exchange in order to, for example, “Check online the availability of certain bicycle models in specialist shops. Even the bike manufacturer cannot say at which dealers the desired model in the wanted colour and frame size is available for interested consumers. With that many sales opportunities goes to waste.”
