“No choice but still brilliant!”

ProsVery good software. Since the Multiuser environment is released, we can simultaneaously as a team in one project. Of course we don't have choice in the software, because the selected hardware forces us to use Tia Portal, but we're happy.
ConsIn very rare cases the software crashes.. lets say monthly. And thats still frustrating :)

“One of the best IDE to program Siemens PLC and HMI”

OverallThe possiblity to have all the programming in a unique environment.
ProsI love how you can edit the graphic. It is a complete suite and it is very intuitive. It is completely different from Siemens previous tools.
ConsIn some occasion, it can be difficult to use the suite if you don't have an informatic background. Sometimes it crashes.

“only one year used TIA portal but completely in love :)”

ProsComplete package with HMI and PLC as well as technology objects are integrated as if it is one system. Also the multi-user server gives big advantages; as team we can work easily on one project simultaneously.
ConsThe software freezes ones in a month. That can result in a loss of a few hours work...

“All-in-one communication portal with PLCs and more”

OverallWith this tool we can program PLC/HMI software and upload them to the correct nodes.
ProsA great feature is the ability to customize the GUI to suit your needs. The application has great support and help documentation integrated.
ConsThe number of advanced features (most of which will never be used) is large and makes navigating the interface a chore sometimes. Also, the application has its share of bugs and it crashes more often than I would expect.

“software for the design of industrial control systems”

ProsIt is an integrated system of low cost and high performance, this allows the design of the communication of all the equipment from a single platform, easy learning.
ConsIt is an integrated software and then saves all the design in a single file, this software requires computers with high performance, the help option is not very clear for the user

“you can program Siemens plc instruments, HMI control panels and scada systems wtih tia portal. ”

OverallI've learned programming plc cpu units and connecting them with scada or HMI display units. Loading and uploading programs form plc, scada or hmi systems.
ProsTIA portal has it's own libraries so you dont have to code everything from beginning. Help section is also very useful. You can simulate the program easily within software. You can use different programming langueges.
ConsHard to understand error reports and fixing them. Sometimes making connections between plc groups and computers is not easy and doesn't recognize connections. Doesn't support every siemens plc and other brands.

“different softwares joined not really a built in platform”

Overallmany MOM projects managed and customer feedback
ProsLarge hardware manufacturing brand behind. If you choose this MOM software your company will never blame to you for the bad decision.
ConsComplex, difererent metodologies in the same platform. Just a sand box.
