Reporting is a key task of a SCADA system. Therefore this function is a particular focal point of SIMATIC WinCC Open Architecture.
A web-based reporting using a standardized SOAP (Simple Object Access Protocol) reporting interface is implemented. This allows reporting tools from third-party suppliers to be used without any additional effort. Reporting is further simplified by the additional provision of BIRT templates and pre-defined reporting data.
