The OEM says its Berlin-Marienfelde site will be transformed into a competence centre for digitalisation, focusing on the development and implementation of its ecosystem MO360, in addition to the redesign of production activities. In the future, e-mobility components will also be assembled in Berlin. The Digital Factory Campus in Berlin is the technological and digital nucleus for the whole Mercedes-Benz Cars production network. Its objective is to roll out the new developments that have been tested in Berlin at its plants worldwide and to provide the users with the required qualifications. With the Werner-von-Siemens Centre for Industry and Science also located in Berlin, both plants will be transformed into two modern digital sites.

Siemens will use its automation and software solutions to provide the foundation for the digital transformation of automotive production. This will enable the combining of the physical and virtual worlds as well as operational technology and IT, with the aim to open up new possibilities for gathering, understanding and using the huge amounts of data generated in engineering and production.
