Totally Integrated Automation (TIA)
Diethart Bischof, Siemens, Germany

Totally Integrated Automation - Setting a New Standard in Industrial Automation Today's industrial automation solutions demand more and more integrated functions of every component:
PLCs, HMI- and Process Control Systems together with actuators and sensors in the field level, e.g. drives.

In the past these components were developed and optimized independent from each other. Thus costs for engineering increased significantly. The architecture of Totally Integrated Automation is based on a threefold integration: comunication, programming and a uniform database. So significant increases of productivity are possible for customers even in complex automation solutions with distributed system architecture.
