Automation Tasks in 10 minutes or less

Efficiency and productivity are decisive success factors for the manufacturing industry. Efficient automation starts with efficient engineering. One of the aims of the TIA Portal is to save engineering time, costs and effort on a system-wide basis. Only one project is required for the engineering of all automation equipment - controllers, HMIs and drives. Our Web Tutorials use concrete tasks to show you how you can reduce your configuring time in day-to-day work. In addition, you increase the profitability of engineering projects, and sharpen your competitive edge.

That’s engineering efficiency!
