EXPERTISE

WE ARE EXPERTS IN INDUSTRY 4.0 TECHNOLOGIES TO GROW THE SAUDI ARABIA PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT LANDSCAPE

A resilient and active product development network is an essential backbone of a successful economy. Simera SA is actively focused on supporting product development companies, either by direct consultation and support with supply chain curatorship, systems design, prototyping, incubation and product launch, or by assisting government institutions to set up focused product development support centres. These act as technology epicentres supporting SMEs in the establishment and efficient optimization of Industry 4.0 processes. Additionally, they act as practical vocational training hubs and production partners for SMEs. We offer end-to-end solutions for turnkey Industry 4.0 product development showcase projects.

INDUSTRY 4.0

In direct partnership with our Swiss Industry 4.0 specialist sister company, Simera Innovate GmbH, Simera SA offers specialist Industry 4.0 technology applications. Our central focus is to innovate product design and production processes in line with Industry 4.0 systems and standards. We asses Industry 4.0 readiness and guide our clients through the adoption and transition phase to Industry 4.0 compliance and performance.

A LIVING SYSTEM
The Simera SA portfolio is established in product design, simulation, production and product data management technologies, working directly with their convergence and automation.

We understand that Industry 4.0 production systems and business strategies will expose untapped opportunities for individuals, entrepreneurs, SMEs, enterprises and institutions and actively participate in the development and application of these technologies. Industry 4.0 application is not a single event, it is a journey and Simera SA is ready to support our clients on this journey.

OUR AREAS OF FOCUS

TURNKEY BESPOKE UAV SYSTEMS DEVELOPMENT

We develop custom high-performance UAVs for commercial and institutional clients, working with our established global network of component and systems suppliers to provide efficient and agile systems design, integration and test capability. We execute these as turnkey projects within a secure PLM data environment and, on completion, transfer the complete research, development and production data back to you. That way you have peace of mind that all product development knowledge is captured and secured.

STRUCTURAL SIMULATION AND SYSTEMS MODEL

Our experience in the numerical simulation of physical systems enables us to implement the Siemens NX virtual twin simulation tools. These range from basicstructural static response to advanced thermal and dynamic response investigations. We use our PLM data management systems to ensure complete forward and backward design synchronization between requirements, design and simulation tasks. We research methods and techniques to extend this to production and operational lifecycles, continuously verifying our designs by testing static loads, cyclic and structural signatures as well as modal, sine and random response shaker tests.

APPLICATION OF PLM IN PRODUCT DESIGN AND PRODUCTION ENVIRONMENT

As long-established users of Siemens Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) tools, Simera recognizes that data interoperability and governance is crucial for optimized product development. This is particularly relevant for geographically dispersed teams. We assist SMEs, Capability Centres and research institutes to plan and optimize the PLM implementation process.

IMPLEMENTATION OF ISO SYSTEMS IN PRECISION PRODUCTION ENVIRONMENTS

We customize and implement quality management systems such as ISO 9001 and ISO 13485 in regulated environments. We shape and tailor process structures and ensure that optimal quality-focused execution systems are implemented and adapted to match both product and process.

SYSTEMS ENGINEERING AND PROJECT MANAGEMENT

Our team has extensive experience working in well-controlled defence and space hardware development projects. We use this experience to tailor systems engineering and project management to optimized program requirements such as:

• Systems engineering management
• Requirements gathering and analyses
• Systems and solution innovation and architecting
• Project management

CONCEPTUAL, DETAIL DESIGN AND ANALYSES

We have an exceptionally strong design and simulation capability using class-leading simulation tools covering various technical domains such as:

• Structural design and analyses
• Optical design and analyses
• Optomechanical design and analyses
• Thermal design and analyses

EXPERIMENTAL TEST AND MEASUREMENT

Experimental test and measurement support have been at the core of Simera activities since our inception. We use insight from these tests to determine system responses to real-world operational loading and, in such a manner, correlate our created virtual twin numerical models. We also use experimental testing to validate build and process quality, either as product qualification or as continuous production process qualification.
