COMOS generates a digital data model that enables comprehensive plant management. All disciplines are fully integrated – from process design to engineering and operations. COMOS can be seamlessly linked to Siemens process control technology for a smooth flow of information. In addition, COMOS Walkinside provides you with a powerful 3D virtual reality visualization for use in engineering, commissioning, training and operations.
Model-based technologies are the key to efficient plant engineering and operations. Simulations help to optimize processes and allow reliable predictions to be made about the plant. Consistent use over the process plant's entire lifecycle maximizes the economic benefits. Cost-effectiveness can be increased even further by linking the simulation models together and seamlessly integrating them with COMOS, SIMIT and the process control technology.
The SIMIT simulation platform is a tool for virtual commissioning and operator training that enables comprehensive testing of automation applications and provides a realistic training environment for plant operators even before the real plant startup. This creates opportunities for process optimization and know-how capture, which in turn reduces commissioning times and significantly shortens the time to market. The overall result is greater efficiency throughout the lifecycle of manufacturing and process plants.
XHQ operations intelligence software servers to aggregate, integrate, analyze and visualize asset and business information using all back-end data sources from control technology, engineering and simulation. XHQ offers you simple access to complex data for better and faster decision making, any time and anywhere, including uncomplicated remote access via mobile devices.
SIMATIC ET 200SP HA (SIMATIC Hardware)
