Simatic Migration Services make machines and systems future-proof

Simatic Migration Services enable companies to migrate to the latest Simatic technologies. This makes their legacy ­automation systems future-proof, increases plant availability and extends machine lifespan. The services are designed for manufacturing customers in all discrete automation industries. With Sim­atic Migration Services, customers can retain Siemens experts to perform the entire migration. The quick and simple changeover can be achieved through standardized migration offerings, which range from consulting and conception, through the implementation, testing and commissioning to the handover of the new system, including technical training for the personnel. Precise planning minimizes both the risks of migration and the scheduled downtime for the implementation.

The services can be tailored flexibly to match a company’s requirements. Both partial and complete migration of systems and machines are possible. Within the scope of the service, Siemens experts support users, in particular with the migration of application software from Step 7, Protool or WinCC Flexible projects to TIA Portal projects. If required, frequency converters and ­Motion Control systems can also be modernized. Companies that take advantage of Simatic Migration Services benefit from a smooth migration, long-term spare part availability, integrated diagnostic functions that speed up fault correction, and reduced downtimes. Modern Simatic technology and network infrastructures also enable efficient inter­operability of all components and greatest transparency across all levels: relevant information is available anywhere in the plant at any time.
