Product Information for SIMATIC IT Unified Architecture

SIMATIC IT Unified Architecture is the foundation for optimizing manufacturing execution processes. It helps manufacturers become digital enterprises by allowing them to digitize and integrate their entire industrial value chain through Manufacturing Execution System (MES)/Manufacturing Operations Management (MOM) which provides manufacturers with a real-time industry software layer.

SIMATIC IT Unified Architecture Foundation

Main functionalities

SIMATIC IT Unified Architecture Foundation (SIT UAF) offers several functional modules. The project studio module, for application developers, is used to create functional blocks. The solution studio module, for system administrators and integrators, is used to set up and deploy solutions in execution environments. Other system modules provide additional functions. The event manager provides a function for an advanced event and signal management.

SIT UAF includes predefined functional blocks to manage, track and trace all manufacturing activities with an advanced manufacturing task management system.

Benefits

  • Integrates with the automation system
  • Enables end user to configure event rules so they can combine automation and operational data
  • Provides a better user experience with new interface themes and style sheets
  • Delivers a more intuitive environment for configuring and deploying solutions

A unified manufacturing operations data bus lies at the core of the SIT UAF. This communication system ensures the integration of outdated software programs while creating an integrated MOM system.

SIMATIC IT Unified Architecture Discrete Manufacturing

SIMATIC IT Unified Architecture Discrete Manufacturing (SIMATIC IT UADM) is a software product specifically designed and developed by Siemens by leveraging the SIMATIC IT Unified Architecture Foundation.

SIMATIC IT UADM is a specialized product addressing the needs of the discrete industry market. It is designed to satisfy the most common needs of industries in which specific macro-areas are dedicated to executing sequential discrete manufacturing functions in order to produce the desired product. It ensures greater process-flexibility and efficiency as well as reductions in maintenance and operation costs with manufacturing execution capabilities. It provides the shop floor visibility needed to increase quality and efficiency at the plant and within supply chain operations.
