Digitalization with TIA Portal

  • Entry
Digitalization is changing our world – and the production methods used by state-of-the-art manufacturing companies to ensure their long-term competitiveness. To be able to respond appropriately, plant operators have to shorten their time-to-market and become more efficient and flexible, while maintaining or even improving their quality.

TIA Portal as the base for the digitalization
Totally Integrated Automation (TIA) already offers everything needed to turn the benefits of digitalization into genuine added value.

This is where the data is generated from a common base to form the digital twin.
Enhanced with new discoveries, the data is fed back again into the automation level to ensure continuous optimization of production – all to ensure your competitive edge.

You reach the following links to technical application examples, for the different "Use Cases" of the digitalization.
