  2. DI-AUTOEN - Description

Totally Integrated Automation in the Digital Enterprise - Automatic execution of engineering tasks (DI-AUTOEN)


  • Digital Enterprise, your path to Industry 4.0 - discover your possibilities. Today's technologies are so complex that, in order to keep up to date, it is almost essential for the training to be performed on the software and the associated training devices.
  • The target group of these course is comprised of configuration engineers, project planners and programmers working for medium-size and large-scale industrial companies, who deal with the automatic execution of engineering tasks. This includes the generation of PLC programs and HMI visualizations.
  • This course gives you an overview of Totally Integrated Automation in the Digital Enterprise as your way towards Industry 4.0 and an overview about the interaction of the various software packages, so that you will be able to assess them after completing the course.
  • The objective of the course is to achieve higher efficiency in the creation of PLC code and HMI visualizations for modular machines. This is achieved by:
    • The automatic execution of repetitive processes for identical functions
    • A code that can be generated more quickly and more reliably for the same processes
    • Reducing the engineering effort demanded by user interfaces, while standardizing the visualization across the plant
    • Automatically generating and creating the visualizations, based on the program code of the controller and of corresponding visualization objects within the framework of system-wide library concepts
Type Face-to-face training
Duration 5 days
