SIMATIC PCS 7 Plant Automation Accelerator Workshop for beginners (ST-PCS7PAA)

  • This course will give you an overview of the different applications and functions of the SIMATIC PCS 7 Plant Automation Accelerator (PAA).


  • The objective is to plan automation functions from the hardware to the software so that they can then be efficiently imported into SIMATIC PCS 7.
  • In this way, you will be able to create top-quality plant automation from the beginning and implement new projects much faster.
  • As a system integrator, you will be able to substantially improve your market position.
  • Using practical examples, you will learn step-by-step how to create and edit the automation function with the help of the PAA.
  • After attending the course, you will be able to:
    • Create your own components and templates
    • Utilize the potential for efficient mass engineering directly in the Plant Automation Accelerator (PAA)
    • Process external signal lists efficiently
    • Perform data exchange with process automation in SIMATIC PCS 7
Type Face-to-face training
