It all begins with Digital Workflow
Greater flexibility and openness
The Totally Integrated Automation Portal (TIA Portal) increases flexibility of machine builders and plant operators through digital workflow. With flexible cloud solutions, the Virtual commissioning with a Digital Twin and open interfaces for higher connectivity allow you to work open, virtually and networked.
Increase your flexibility and work in an open, virtual, and networked manner
A digital workflow allows a virtual copy of machines and plants to be used to simulate and test every aspect before actually building the real thing. This „digital twin“ is also networked with operational IT and the cloud to enable even more flexibility, with the end result being higher quality products.
Scalable simulation as required
By simulating the entire installation, including the controller and HMI, and by evaluating it based on a virtual model, local commissioning time is reduced thanks to PLCSIM Advanced, the controller’s digital twin.
- Access to rapid testing of PLC modules
Using SIMATIC S7-PLCSIM integrated into the TIA Portal
- Easy plant modeling using time sequences and switching
With SIMATIC S7-PLCSIM Advanced and model creation using STEP 7
- Complex models drawn up in high-level languages
Connect to independently created applications (C, C#, third party, etc.) using PLCsim Advanced interface
- Use high end modeling systems
By connecting PLCsim Advanced to Process Simulate or Plant Simulation
Data consistency across tool boundaries
Open system TIA Portal allows you to efficiently create your project using software generators, thus reducing the number of redundant workflows. With Teamcenter, you also merge the project versions from planning, engineering and design.
- Efficiently create program code
Using code generators connected via the TIA Portal Openness interface
- Use existing third-party data
From EPLAN, Mathworks, TIA Selection Tool, 3rd party using hardware/software import/export via the TIA Portal Openness interface
- Save projects world-wide
By storing TIA Portal projects in Teamcenter
Networked workflows – wherever and whenever needed
You can connect to the cloud to increase flexibility in your everyday work with total data consistency. The new TIA Portal Cloud connector lets you access the system controller from your private cloud. No installation on the engineering workstation is necessary. MindSphere – the cloud-based, open IoT operating system from Siemens can be used for additional digital services.
- Easy online access
With the TIA Portal Cloud connector and your private cloud
- End-to-end planning regardless of the terminal used
You can even work on tablets, regardless of operating system, with the TIA Selection Tool Cloud
- Analyses and services in the same quality world-wide
With MindSphere – the cloud-based, open IoT operating system from Siemens
Discover the whole TIA Portal software portfolio
With the TIA Portal you integrate not only the basic software (STEP 7, WinCC, SINAMICS Startdrive, SIMOCODE ES and SIMOTION SCOUT TIA) but benefit also from additional functionalities with new options like TIA Portal Multiuser Engineering and energy management with SIMATIC Energy Suite in a single interface.
