Performance plus efficiency from Siemens' Tia Portal

20 July 2015

The ‘Totally Integrated Automation Portal’ (TIA Portal) from Siemens UK & Ireland is a step change in providing manufacturers with the means to harness the power of a seamless approach to engineering, maintenance and commissioning tasks, all within a single engineering framework. 

Manufacturers across all sectors face a number of challenges and market drivers. If companies are to maintain a competitive advantage in a global manufacturing environment, issues such as optimising productivity, reducing time to market and creating more flexible production options are of central concern to manufacturers.  It is acknowledged that the manufacturing efficiencies and flexibility benefits delivered by investment in automation engineering can help address some of these key issues.

A major consideration is the increasing demand for the continual innovation of products with shorter product lifecycle.  This creates great pressures on the ability of manufacturers to achieve both flexible production schedules, as well as deliver products to market in ever shorter timescales.

Recognising these trends, Siemens UK & Ireland embarked upon the development of the Totally Integrated Automation (TIA) Portal. With automation systems leading the way in terms of generating production efficiencies, the portal is an ‘industry-first’ software engineering framework that allows users - via integrated software tools - to complete the journey from product design and development through production planning, engineering and operational stages, all within a single engineering environment.
