Siemens has officially launched the new Version 14 of the TIA (Totally Integrated Automation) Portal in Vietnam, which will shorten the time to market for machinery manufacturers and increase the productivity of end-users.

Version 14 of the engineering framework is enriched with a wide range of new functionalities for the digital enterprise and the requirements of Industry 4.0.

“There can be varied machinery and system components in an engineering process, making it complex and challenging to manage,” said Mr. Tindaro Michele Danze, Digital Factory and Process Drives Division Lead and Vice President at Siemens Vietnam. “With added features such as simulation via a digital twin, an open interface system and cloud solutions, processes and data can be seamlessly integrated via the TIA portal, reducing commissioning time and redundant workflows and increasing flexibility.”

He added this would be especially beneficial to manufacturers in Vietnam, which have recently seen an emergence of new players in the industry. “Through our various conversations with customers, we are beginning to see that manufacturers in the food and beverage (F&B), cement, water and wastewater as well as chemical sectors are starting to realize the need to digitalize in order to remain competitive by reaping the benefits of increased production flexibility, higher levels of efficiency, and reduced time-to-market of their innovation cycle,” he said.

The TIA Portal interacts with other systems and exchanges data through open interfaces. The Team center gateway has a new interface for product data management in Team center, the Siemens data collaboration platform for design, planning and engineering. Users can easily create model-based programs with a new interface to Matlab/Simulink.

The cloud-based engineering is also new. From their private cloud, users can access the plant controller with the new TIA Portal Cloud Connector, or use Mind Sphere, the Siemens cloud solution for industry, for additional digital services from Siemens. Another new feature is PLCSim Advanced with interfaces to simulation software, such as Plant Simulation and Process Simulate. A Simatic S7-1500 controller can be simulated as a digital twin with PLCSim Advanced to achieve efficient, virtual commissioning.

Siemens AG (Berlin and Munich) is a global technology powerhouse that has stood for engineering excellence, innovation, quality, reliability and internationality for more than 165 years. The company is active in more than 200 countries, focusing on the areas of electrification, automation and digitalization.

One of the world’s largest producers of energy-efficient, resource-saving technologies, Siemens is No. 1 in offshore wind turbine construction, a leading supplier of gas and steam turbines for power generation, a major provider of power transmission solutions, and a pioneer in infrastructure solutions as well as automation, drive and software solutions for industry. The company is also a leading provider of medical imaging equipment, such as computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) systems, and a leader in laboratory diagnostics as well as clinical IT.
