TIA Portal V14 engineering framework: increased productivity, reduced time to market

  • TIA Portal V14: expanded functionality focuses on diagnostics, virtual commissioning and multi-users
  • Digital enterprise functions and Industrie 4.0 requirements
  • Enhanced energy management and motion control, cloud connectivity and digital twin for virtual commissioning


Siemens has officially launched the new Version 14 version of the TIA Portal (Totally Integrated Automation) in Vietnam, which will shorten the time to market for machine manufacturers and increase the productivity of end users. This Version 14 of the engineering framework is enriched with a wide range of new functionalities for the digital enterprise and the requirements of Industrie 4.0.


The TIA Portal interacts with other systems and exchanges data through open interfaces. The Teamcenter gateway has a new interface for product data management in Teamcenter, the Siemens data collaboration platform for design, planning and engineering. The user can easily create model-based programs with a new interface to Matlab/Simulink.


The cloud-based engineering is also new. From their private cloud, users can access the plant controller with the new TIA Portal Cloud Connector, or use MindSphere, the Siemens cloud solution for industry, for additional digital services from Siemens. Another new feature is PLCSim Advanced with interfaces to simulation software, such as Plant Simulation and Process Simulate. A Simatic S7-1500 controller can be simulated as a digital twin with PLCSim Advanced to achieve efficient, virtual commissioning.


Tindaro Michele Danze, Digital Factory and Process Drives Division Lead and Vice President, Siemens Vietnam, said, “There can be varied machine and system components in an engineering process, making it complex and challenging to manage. With added features such as simulation via a digital twin, an open interface system and cloud solutions, processes and data can be seamlessly integrated via the TIA portal, reducing commissioning time, redundant workflows and increased flexibility.”


Danze added: “This would be especially beneficial to manufacturers in Vietnam, which has recently seen an emergence in new players in the industry. Through our various conversations with customers, we are beginning to see that manufacturers in the Food & Beverage (F&B), cement, water and wastewater as well as chemical sectors are starting to realize the need to digitalize in order to remain competitive by reaping the benefits of increased production flexibility, higher levels of efficiency and reduced time-to-market of their innovation cycle.”
