  • New development – Simatic PCS neo sets new standards in process automation
  • Intuitive usability and a single workbench for all tasks
  • Consistent object-oriented data management
  • Unique, global, web-based collaboration in engineering and operation
  • Scalable from small process modules up to the largest process plants in the world


Siemens sets new standards in process automation with the launch of an innovative web-based process control system for all industries.

Simatic PCS neo is a brand-new system software, which offers companies in the process industry unique opportunities in the age of digitalization. Main features include global web-based collaboration in engineering and operation and an intuitive user interface that displays all relevant information in a single workbench.


Users benefit from an intuitive graphical user interface (GUI) that allows them to reach any application with just a few clicks. Simatic PCS neo’s workbench makes it easy to change between the Engineering and the Monitoring & Control view at any time. The seamless object-oriented data model increases efficiency and quality over the entire plant lifecycle.

Simatic PCS neo sets new standards in global collaboration for all project team members. All information can be accessed at any time, from any location easily and directly using a secure web connection. The web-based system allows multiple users to work in parallel and does not require local software installation. With central, object-oriented data management, Simatic PCS neo ensures consistent, reliable data at all times.

Simatic PCS neo impresses with an open and flexible architecture, in which modular engineering with support of Module Type Packages (the open MTP standard) is already integrated. The control system scales to support applications of all sizes, from small process modules up to the largest plants in the world. This is made possible by reusing engineering templates for the easy scale-up and adaptation to different plant sizes.


Simatic PCS neo will meet the requirements of the standard IEC 62443. It sustainably implements the well-known multi-layer "Defense-in-depth" security concept. The system also consistently fulfills the specifications defined in the Charter of Trust.

New Simatic PCS neo system software uses the recently innovated hardware portfolio and application architecture of the powerful, comprehensive process control system Simatic PCS 7 version 9.0. In this way, Siemens can provide its customers with investment and know-how protection combined with the advantages of the new system.
