This ensures comprehensive access to plant information for each target group in the company (managers, quality assurance, maintenance) at all times.


  • Full transparency of historical WinCC data (WinCC Archive and SIMATIC Process Historian)

  • Uniform and independent of version for different data sources

  • Efficient, web-based analysis through clearly structured dashboards and automated reports

  • Process information can be compiled online during runtime

  • Quick generation of standard reports through prepared templates

  • Individual reports based on the Microsoft Reporting Services

  • Cyclic activation of reports based on demands or events and forwarded by email, if necessary

  • Simple analysis with MS Office through integration in MS Word, MS Excel or MS PowerPoint

  • Plant information at any time – from any location: Web-based analyses also on mobile devices

Design and functions

The integrated reporting system, based on the Microsoft SQL Server Reporting Services, creates and manages dashboards and reports interactively and makes them available on the web at any time. Integration in Microsoft Word, Excel or PowerPoint also lets you access historical data using the tools you know from the Office environment.
By making the SIMATIC Information Server available for a variety of products, it can be used for any WinCC system even across different versions. The SIMATIC Information Server is also used as a reporting system for the SIMATIC Process Historian.

Existing knowledge can be optimally reused thanks to the integrated analysis of data from different sources with only only reporting tool. Comprehensive analyses with a uniform look and feel create transparency and show weak points. Necessary optimization measures can be developed quickly and efficiently to increase plant productivity and availability.
The SIMATIC Information Server is installed on a separate PC or on a WinCC single-user station, WinCC server or WinCC client.
