SIMATIC WinCC (TIA Portal) is part of a comprehensive, integrated engineering concept which offers a uniform engineering environment for programming and configuration of control, visualization drive solutions and motor management. This engineering framework is a milestone in software development and represents the consistent further development of the TIA concept.
WinCC in the TIA Portal is the software for all HMI applications ranging from the simplest operation solutions with Basic Panels to SCADA applications on PC-based multi-user systems. The range of solutions is thus increased significantly compared to the predecessor product, SIMATIC WinCC flexible.
SIMATIC WinCC V7 is still available for more complex applications with Plant Intelligence solutions or redundant architectures, while WinCC Open Architecture addresses solutions with highly customer-specific adaptation requirements, including on non-Windows platforms.


  • Innovative configuration interface based on the latest software technologies
  • Comprehensive library concept for user-definable objects and faceplates
  • Intelligent tools for graphical configuration and mass data handling
  • Start/stop sequences
  • Communication with remote stations and control centers

Design and functions
Compared to WinCC flexible, which has set the standards in engineering for years, configuration efficiency has been further increased, particularly if further TIA components such as the SIMATIC S7 Controller are part of the automation solution. The perfect interaction with STEP 7 in the TIA Portal prevents multiple entries and guarantees consistent data managementat all times

Perfect interaction in the engineering framework
The design of the software editors in the TIA Portal is based on a shared layout and shared navigation concept. The configuration of the hardware, logic programming, parameterization of a frequency converter, or the design of an HMI screen – each environment has the same editor design, which is specifically designed for intuitive use to save time and costs.

Configuring with libraries and faceplates
The library concept of the TIA Portal is not limited to the supplied program blocks or faceplates. With the TIA Portal, the user can create his own libraries of many various parts of the engineering objects, which can be easily reused.

Intelligent tools for efficient configuration
Time-saving configuration means: delegating tasks. SIMATIC WinCC supports the project engineer with wizards for routine tasks and a lot of sophisticated tools and functions that ensure excellent results in shortest realization time.
