Even the standard version of the innovative SIMATIC PCS 7 process control system offers you high-quality control functions that can be configured, commissioned, operated and monitored with on-board system resources. In short - APC is homogeneously integrated in SIMATIC PCS 7: in the engineering system, in the operator stations and in the automation systems.
Advantages of integrated APC:
Fully integrated in SIMATIC PCS 7 – i.e. same look and feel in engineering and operation
APC functions are included by default in the standard library of SIMATIC PCS 7 (APL) i.e. no additional costs for licenses
High availability of APC functions due to use of redundant controllers
