Patti Engineering Named by Siemens as First MindSphere Hybrid OT Partner

Patti Engineering, a control system integration company based in Michigan with offices in Texas and Indiana, has announced that Siemens has named the company a MindSphere Gold Partner. The company is the first Hybrid Operational Technology (OT) Partner in the U.S. to expand its existing relationship with the Siemens Digital Factory Division into the new MindSphere Partner Program.

In addition to being a MindSphere Partner, Patti Engineering is a Siemens Solution Partner certified in Automation, Drives and was among the first Solution Partners in the U.S. to be certified in Industrial Strength Networks and Industrial Identification. The company has been a Siemens Solution Partner since 2009.

MindSphere is a cloud-based Internet of Things (IoT) operating system. It is an open platform with the ability to connect to nearly any machine and to build any app to improve plant operations. The MindSphere Partner Program creates an ecosystem of experts to assist manufacturers at every stage of implementation.

Patti Engineering was chosen as a MindSphere Hybrid OT Partner because of the company's expertise working on plant floor OT systems and deep understanding of how the actions on the plant floor need to be monitored at the management level. With all the new technologies available to collect data and monitor and simulate plant operations, Patti Engineering can now use Siemens' MindSphere to help companies seize competitive advantages by customizing solutions to meet their unique business needs.

"To optimize the deluge of data available through IoT technologies, domain competence makes the difference," said Paul Kaeley, Senior Vice President, Global Partner Ecosystem at Siemens PLM Software. "Patti Engineering has the expertise in discrete manufacturers' day-to-day operations and business priorities. We are excited for companies to leverage Patti's 25 years of experience to help make their data actionable."

"Industry 4.0 and IoT are just buzzwords if facilities cannot harness those technologies to make their facilities run better," said Sam Hoff, CEO of Patti Engineering. "For example, we have one customer who has half of its 200 engineers on track to retire within the next five years. Automating data collection and monitoring, closing the loop on digital twins and analyzing data in new ways can help companies like our customer meet these challenges."

The new partnership comes shortly after the announcement of the availability of the latest version of MindSphere, which is hosted on Amazon Web Services (AWS), a provider of cloud services worldwide. The new version includes updates to its application programming interface (API), allowing integration of nearly any type of technology.

"We are very excited to partner with Siemens and our customers to bring solutions that can help profoundly change manufacturing," said Hoff.
