In light of depleting order inflows and dwindling profits, Siemens is planning to cut capital expenditure.  With uncertain business environment, the company will be taking a series of measures to prune costs, strengthen core business activities, improve sales, and optimize the use of its facilities in sync with its parent company’s strategy. Further, the reports also suggest that company will also focus on its low-cost and high-technology ‘SMART’ products, which contribute 15 per cent of the order in-take.
