Arc Advisory Group will present research on Siemens Integrated Drives Systems (IDS) as a total life cycle solution for machine builders/OEMs.
The basis of this research will provide information that will help machine builders reposition their organization into a strategic partner with their end users versus turning each sale into a price battle with their competition. Key topics of the paper include an executive overview; a review of why flawless startup depends on drive train design; how to drive additional revenue streams with aftermarket services; and an overview of how drive train analytics extends technical service agreements.
