Siemens Industry Software India Pvt. Ltd. (SISW), a wholly owned subsidiary of Siemens Product Lifecycle Management Software Inc., recently signed an agreement with the State of Andhra Pradesh Skill Development Corporation for the establishment of six Centers of Excellence (COEs) and thirty Technical Institutes across the state. The agreement was signed jointly by SISW and their partner, DesignTech Systems Ltd. (DesignTech) on 30th June 2015 at the APSSDC Office, Hyderabad.
The six COEs will address diverse industry segments like Automotive, Industrial machinery, Industrial automation, Aerospace & defense, and Shipbuilding. The collaboration will train students on relevant industry processes and help create industry-ready trained personnel. This industry-readiness and relevance of skills will attract better career opportunities for students and will eventually foster further industrial development in the state of Andhra Pradesh. The COEs are unique in their ability as they will be able to stitch together the virtual world of engineering and manufacturing simulation with the physical world of product development and manufacturing.
Equipped with the latest PLM software solutions from Siemens PLM Software, such as NXTM software for digital product engineering, Teamcenter® software for digital lifecycle management and Tecnomatix® software for digital manufacturing, and state-of-the-art industrial automation equipment from Siemens Industry these COEs will have the latest computer numerical controllers (CNC), programmable logic controllers (PLC), computer integrated manufacturing units (CIM) comprising of CNC milling and turning machines, automated guided vehicles (AGV), industrial robots, automatic storage and retrieval systems, vision inspection systems for quality control, CIM controllers and software and rapid prototyping machines. All the software is integrated using the Siemens Total Integrated Automation (TIA) portal, and each of the COEs will have seven fully equipped laboratories staffed with instructors trained and certified by SISW.
In addition to the 6 COEs, to cater to the dual need of percolating industry knowledge throughout the technical skill supply chain as well as catering to various levels of job requirements that exist in this ecosystem, a unique hub & spoke model is developed where the COEs cater to the white collar requirements and t-SDIs focus on the grey & blue collar spectrum. These 30 technical-Skill Development Institutes training centers are focused on skilling students in vocational trades – Automotive, Electrician, Electronics, Manufacturing & Fabrication, and Agro & Farm machineries, at Polytechnic/ ITI level.
These centers are built with industry partnership with companies like Mahindra First Choice for Automotive, Schneider for Electrical, HCL for Electronics, LMW for Manufacturing, ESAB for Welding and John Deere for Agriculture.
The Govt. of AP has recognized VVIT as a Nodal Centre of APSSDC and a Siemen’s Centre of Excellence is established in 2016 with 12 state-of-the art laboratories to prepare engineering students of this region for better training and placements.
The following Siemens CoE labs are available in VVIT.
