TIA Portal Multiuser Engineering

Several engineers simultaneously working on the same project

TIA Portal Multiuser Engineering allows several users to work on the same project simultaneously. Working in local sessions is carried out independently of each other, changes made by other users are displayed and can be accepted.

TIA Portal Multiuser Engineering

The basic principle:
The project administration is handled by an autonomous server application. This can be installed independent of a TIA Portal.

Benefits

  • Significant reduction in configuration times, and projects can be commissioned faster.

  • Existing Know-how of specialists can be optimally integrated


Area of application

TIA Portal Multiuser Engineering can be used to implement different working options:

Scenario 1
Several configuration engineers work cross-device on different objects. Each configuration engineer processes the objects assigned to him/her on different devices (controllers).

Scenario 2
Several configuration engineers work device-oriented on different objects. Each configuration engineer processes the objects assigned to him/her on only one device (controller)

Scenario 3
Several configuration engineers work technology-oriented on different objects. Each configuration engineer works on defined technological objects (e.g. Motor_1 or Motor_2) on all existing devices (controllers).

Functions

  • The project administration is located on a local or external server.

  • Different users work in local sessions, based on the projects administered by the server

  • Working in local sessions is carried out independently

  • Changes made in the local sessions are transferred to the server project by checking-in.

  • Checked-in changes made by other users are displayed and can be easily accepted.


Licensing

  • The software is part of STEP7/WinCC (TIA Portal) DVD rsp. the program download.

  • Licensed as Floating license: The number of licenses determines the number of computers the software can be used on at one time.
