Siemens and Evonik announce technology partnership

June 19, 2018 - Siemens and Evonik are to enter into a technology partnership. Its aim is the development of an asset life cycle data model and its integration into the Siemens software solution Comos. The asset life cycle data model was developed by Evonik on the basis of the international DEXPI standard ISO 15956 and other internationally valid standards. Its aim is to cover all the elements and structures of relevance for the chemical industry in a single integrated data model across the entire life cycle – from product development, equipment planning and operation to final decommissioning. Siemens and Evonik develop an application providing software support for the whole engineering and operation process. The outcome of this cooperative process will become an integral part of the Comos software portfolio.

The application Siemens and Evonik will be developing jointly will be based on the Comos engineering platform and will use the complete Evonik data model, which covers all the functional features and the corresponding data scope. This also includes interfaces for the input of data generated by upstream process simulations or other process development steps, meaning that as an engineering platform, Comos offers all the possibilities required to map the consistency, flexibility and functionality required for the data model. Consistency is ensured in Comos by the software’s object orientation, whereby an object is defined as any graphical or data-related description of a plant component. Any associated data sheets, lists or other documents are directly linked to the relevant object.
