WinCC flexible – Runtime Software  
Operator control and monitoring close to the machine    

With SIMATIC HMI operator control and monitoring devices, the runtime software is on-board and, depending on the equipments hardware, this gives you different HMI functionality and performance profiles. The runtime functionality can be expanded using options. Some of the options are only available for Panels of a specific class and above, others are integrated to a certain extent.

As an independant software product SIMATIC WinCC flexible Runtime offers all the options needed for PC based HMI:

Functionality of basic Runtime Software

            User administration and access protection
            Windows-compliant user interface with language support
            Process presentations with vector graphics, I/O fields, bar
            charts, trend displays etc.
            Alarm logging system with open alarm classes, acknowledgment
            and archiving
            Reporting system (shift, batch and alarm logs)
            Visual Basic Script for user functions
Functionality of Runtime options

            Logging of alarms and process values
            Recipe management
            Smart-Client-/Server concepts
            Service and diagnostics over the Internet
            Reporting and tracing of operator actions
            Process diagnostics
 Due to the individually traceable system functionality, with WinCC flexible you only pay for exactly the functionality that you require for performing the current HMI task. The grading of systems according to the number of required PowerTags (128, 512, 2048 or 4096) results in particularly attractive entry-level prices. You can, moreover, extend the runtime functionality flexibly at any time by means of Visual Basic scripts. VBScript is a component of the WinCC flexible engineering software.

Engineering Options

WinCC flexible/ChangeControl

Assuming that you are using WinCC flexible Advanced, you can use the WinCC flexible/ChangeControl option to version-manage configuration data and to track changes in configurations
 Runtime Options

WinCC flexible/Archives

Process value and message archiving using WinCC flexible/Archives is for acquiring and processing process data from an industrial plant/machine. In this context, you can document the course of the process; check the rate of utilization or quality of production; or verify repeated error status conditions
WinCC flexible/Recipes

The WinCC flexible/Recipes option is for managing data records that contain connected machine or production data.especially in the context of batch-oriented production in the food or plastics industries.
WinCC flexible/Audit

In operation, the system records all relevant changes to tags and any operator actions in accordance with Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) as Audit Trails and saves them to a CSV file. You can provide additional prompts for an electronic signature and a commentary in the case of operator actions.

SIMATIC Logon offers a central, cross-plant user management, integrated in Windows User management providing various security mechanisms on administrator and user level.
WinCC flexible/SmartAccess

The WinCC flexible/SmartAccess option makes available simple client/server mechanisms thus building the basis for innovative concepts in HMI and automation tasks.
            Local operator stations with plant-wide access to variables    
            Local control room solutions with options for central archiving, analysis and further-    
              processing of process data
WinCC flexible/SmartService

You can use the WinCC flexible/SmartService option for remote control, diagnostics and maintenance concepts.
            Remote control of an on-site station across the Internet incl. service and maintenance    
              functions (downloading projects, downloading/uploading recipes)    
            Diagnosing operator stations using ready-made diagnostic functions.
 WinCC flexible/OPC-Server

Using the SIMATIC WinCC flexible/OPC-Server option, you can can communicate with any OPC-capable application across an Ethernet.
 WinCC flexible/ProAgent

SIMATIC WinCC flexible/ProAgent enables precise process diagnostics for machines and plants thanks to complete integration in the world of SIMATIC process diagnostics.
