Digitalization is changing our world – and the production methods used by state-of-the-art manufacturing companies to ensure their long-term competitiveness. Customer requests are becoming more and more individualized. To be able to respond appropriately, plant operators have to shorten their time-to-market and become more efficient and flexible, while maintaining or even improving their quality. It’s no longer enough just to optimize the automation processes: digitalization offers real potential throughout the entire value chain.
The Digital Enterprise Suite offers a integrated portfolio of software-based systems and automation technologies for discrete industries to seamlessly integrate and digitalize the entire value chain, including suppliers.
Challenges faced by industry today include being faster in the market and reacting more flexibly to market changes. The convergence of the real and digital worlds is creating countless opportunities.
But knowing exactly how to seize these opportunities and build a bridge between the two worlds requires specialized skills and knowledge. SITRAIN has the technical, specialized and digital expertise to improve performance in all stages of the value chain.
You obtained an overview of the scenarios for digitalization possibilities in the TIA environment in the course “Totally Integrated Automation to the Digital Enterprise - Introduction Compact.” Now you can quickly and confidently start your journey on the path to Industrie 4.0.
The Totally Integrated Automation Portal (TIA Portal) can be used to automate engineering tasks. This makes it possible to automatically generate the HMI visualization using SiVArc, and to create standard modules in the TIA Portal that can be re-used to save time. Communication uses the open TIA Portal Openness interface.
Use STEP 7 and TIA Portal to simulate and test the controller functions right at the configuration and engineering stages, with no need for real hardware. This greatly reduces the time and error rate involved in the actual commissioning process.
To increase energy-efficiency, collecting and visualizing energy-relevant data is key. This ranges from direct current to three-phase current. With the help of the TIA Portal option “SIMATIC Energy suite” these data are gathered and processed directly in the PLC. SIMATIC WinCC visualizes and stores the energy data all the way from the infeed to the distribution and to the energy consumer.
The SIMATIC Energy Manager PRO is – based on the collected data – a decision base for a company-wide energy management.
Indicators and integrated analysis functions support the user with optimizing the energy consumption and thus with the reduction of the energy cost portion per produced piece.
This enables well-founded consumption analyses and projections as well as energy-efficiency ratings of machines.
This way you can reduce the energy consumption systematically and specifically and lower the costs of your production.
To protect digital enterprises against cyber attacks plant operators and machine builders need a holistic approach. Machine and plant security enables the efficient implementation of security measures through integrated security functions in TIA Portal. Scalable and predictable security services lead to reduced costs. Additionally, our automation hardware complies with security norm IEC 62443.
