Integrated Plant Automation Engineering

From engineering to automation with no system breaks: SIMATIC PCS 7 Plant Automation Accelerator

Fully integrated: SIMATIC PCS 7 Plant Automation Accelerator (PAA) enables automation planning without system breaks. PAA offers consistent engineering all the way to the process control system. The electronic workflow unites all planning parties and integrates the necessary interfaces as well as data formats. The engineering efficiency achieved in this way creates cost advantages and saves time!

Integration of plant planning/engineering and control system

Engineering efficiency out-of-the-box

Our innovative engineering software SIMATIC PCS 7 Plant Automation Accelerator (PAA) offers engineering efficiency out-of-the-box. The fully integrated solution ensures consistent plant and automation planning. The use of PAA enables working on a central data platform: from bid preparation and automatically generated control technology data from electrical planning to the as-is documentation of process automation. The current NE 150 (VDI 3697) standard is supported for the open exchange of engineering data between the CAE system and DCS engineering tools.

Integration of automation planning and control technology

For planners and automation engineers, PAA also builds the digital bridge between plant engineering with COMOS and our SIMATIC PCS 7 control system. The entire plant structure including measuring point data can be easily generated and synchronized between the systems. PAA also ensures more flexible and error-free import and export of documents that are frequently exchanged between process and automation planners, such as signal or measuring point lists.

PAA supports the standardized exchange of GSD data for Profibus devices as well as the simple and fast configuration of Profinet-capable devices. The current NE 150 (VDI 3697) standard is supported for the open exchange of engineering data between the CAE system and DCS engineering tools.
