The SIMATIC PCS 7 process control system is a significant component of Totally Integrated Automation (TIA), the unique basis offered by Siemens..

for uniform and customized automation in all sectors of the production, process and hybrid industries. Using TIA, Siemens is able to offer uniform automation technology on one single platform for all applications of process automation, starting with input logistics, covering production or primary processes as well as downstream (secondary) processes, up to output logistics. This is suitable for optimization of all operating sequences of an entire company, i.e. from the ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) level and MES (Management Execution System) level to the control level, right down to the field level.

Compatibility of further developments is guaranteed within TIA. This also guarantees that the company's investments have a secure future, and allows the company to modernize and expand the plants throughout the complete lifecycle.

Integrated in a holistic automation solution for a production site, automation of the primary processes is the prime task of SIMATIC PCS 7. On the other hand, secondary processes (e.g. filling, packaging) or input/output logistics (e.g. raw material distribution, storage) are frequently implemented using the PLC-based or PC-based components of SIMATIC.

The advantages of Totally Integrated Automation, in particular the integrated data management, communication and configuration, are already evident during planning and engineering, but also during installation and commissioning, everyday operation as well as maintenance, repairs and modernization.

Integrated data management

Integrated data management means that all software components access a common database. Within a project, inputs and modifications are therefore only necessary at one point. This reduces the work required, and simultaneously avoids potential faults. Once symbolic identifications have been introduced, they are understood by every software component. Data consistency is also guaranteed even if several persons are working simultaneously on a project. Parameters defined in the engineering system can be transferred beyond the network limits down to sensors, actuators or drives in the field.

Integrated communication

Uniform communication from the corporate management level down to the field level is based on internationally recognized standards such as Industrial Ethernet, PROFINET, PROFIBUS or FOUNDATION Fieldbus, and also supports the global flow of information via the Internet. Since the hardware and software components involved also use these communications mechanisms, connections are extremely easy to configure, also cross-system or over different networks.

Integrated configuration

The use of an engineering system with a uniform and matched range of tools minimizes the configuration overhead. The engineering tools for the application software, the hardware components and the communications functions can be called from a central project manager (SIMATIC Manager). This is also the basic application for creation, management, saving and documentation of a project.

The SIMATIC PCS 7 Advanced Engineering System expands the functionality for plant configuration. It acts as a link between the standard engineering tools of the engineering system and the tools used for basic and detailed planning, e.g. EPlan, ELCAD or SmartPlant.

With more than 11 300 implemented projects in nearly all industries, SIMATIC PCS 7 is one of the world's most successful process control systems (DCS). The newly introduced Version 8.0 is a new milestone in its continuous development. SIMATIC PCS 7 V8.0 newly establishes innovative functions in process control systems and further enhances functionality and ease of operation with a host of individual measures. Modern hardware based on up-to-date technologies and latest generation operating systems provide an excellent platform for this purpose.
