Russian steel maker Magnitogorsk Iron & Steel Works and Siemens LLC have entered into an agreement to develop an integration platform and create a competence centre based on MMK. MMK chose WinCC Open Architecture integration platform from Siemens as the principal product for the real-time database of the MMK Group's digital platform. The WinCC Open Architecture integration platform is designed to establish a flexible and scalable system for gathering, storing, visualising, preparing, and transmitting data, hence contributing to more efficient use of resources of large companies such as MMK. The platform will enable the implementation of plans to connect all of the Group's production facilities into a unified information environment, ensuring the transparency of technological processes and raising the level of production management.Siemens and MMK design teams have already started working together. In particular, they have developed a roadmap for the implementation of the platform at the MMK site. In the first stage, it is planned to audit the enterprise's digital landscape, and then use it as a foundation for developing architecture for a single information space based on WinCC Open Architecture, developing the concept of interaction with other components of the MMK digital platform, and reviewing information security issues.The second and following stages will focus on deploying the platform on MMK’s information resources and implementing specific practical cases on its basis.The formation of the WinCC OA Competence Centre based on MMK-Informservice will be a critical milestone in the platform's implementation. As part of this task, the resource base of the centre will be identified and created, and MMK specialists will be trained.
