Engineering-Software SIMOTION SCOUT / SCOUT TIA


The SCOUT engineering system supports you step by step and makes engineering simple and efficient.
SCOUT is the common framework for all engineering system tools. Thus, this workbench is the navigation center for the individual engineering steps. It serves for creating and managing SIMOTION projects and provides a standardized view onto all data and programs. Further, all commissioning and test functions can also be accessed.
