Automation Software Calls

One of the major sources of error in automation engineering comes from a task that brings the least value, repetitive actions of calling software blocks and connecting their parameters to signals in the rest of the code. For line and machine builders this is a task that can happen hundreds of times in a project and simple mistakes here often lead to costly mistakes in commissioning and startup.

In this video we present you how easy the creation of reusable automation design standards in NX Automation Designer is. We show how to design models with PLC software instances and linked tags, then store them as a smart reuse element.  Then we show you the speed and value of quickly reusing those models for a new design to dynamically create PLC software code.

This speeds up your engineering process dramatically, as the smart reuse help you to eliminate error prone, repetitive manual work.
