    Complete System Modernization


    Migration of an old automation system is often a feasible alternative instead of procurement of a system. The reasons are among others:
    • Robustness of the mechanical parts (e.g. machine bed)
    • Retention of the overall manufacturing process
    • Shorter time for modernization of the automation system compared to the delivery time for a new machine
    • Lower costs for modernization of the automation system compared to a new machine.


    Depending on the complexity of the machine, the migration project requires a consistent process with defined steps and reliable information exchange between all involved parties in order to ensure the success of the modernization.

    With Complete System Modernization, Siemens offers you a complete package for trouble free migration projects, starting from the first consultancy meeting until the site acceptance test.


    • Custom-tailored solution for your old automation system directly from the manufacturer of the automation system
    • Your old SIMATIC controller can be migrated to the newest Siemens SIMATIC product family
    • Complete or partial migration can be offered, depending on your needs
    • Regular information exchange with you throughout all the migration phases
    • Quality assurance measures are applied during implementation of the migration 

    Customer benefits:

    • Successful migration by a competent and experienced partner
    • Smooth transition to the target system
    • Minimized risk as a result of collaboration with the manufacturer of the automation system
    • Shorter migration time due to efficient and standardized migration process
