Expanded Scada software for recipe-based production

| By Chemical Engineering



This company has added the WinCC/SES (sequence execution system) option to its Simatic WinCC Scada (supervisory control and data acquisition) system for the sequential control of recipe-based and sequence-based operations in production plants. Such an addition is ideally suited to plants for which dosing, mixing and material transport are important process steps, such as in the food and beverage industry. Thanks to the flexible sequential control, plant operators are able to define their production steps clearly and freely combine them into individual process sequences. Both step sequences and parameters can be adapted online at any time to meet ongoing production requirements. This means that production sequences can be re-adjusted quickly and simply in the event that the quality of natural raw materials fluctuates, or if another sequence of production steps is necessary to enable flexible routing through the production system. — Siemens AG, Nuremberg, Germany
