Rockwell Automation Launches FactoryTalk Design Hub to Speed Time to Market

Rockwell Automation has launched FactoryTalk Design Hub, a smarter way for industrial organizations with enhanced automation design capabilities. Teams of all sizes, skill sets, and in any location can now work together more effectively via the cloud and get products to market faster while reducing costs and ensuring that designs are future-proofed against changing needs.

The cloud-native software product is available anytime, anywhere via a web browser. This reduces development time and makes it easier to collaborate, share and change versions when creating industrial automation systems.

“In this new age of ‘work from anywhere,’ having centralized, on-demand design tools is critical for businesses to scale production and easily adapt to evolving customer needs,” said Brian Shepherd, senior vice president, Software & Control at Rockwell. “FactoryTalk Design Hub gives manufacturing engineers access to the full breadth of Rockwell Automation tools and capabilities in a centralized nexus for successful design and collaboration across their team and the greater enterprise.”

Businesses today are looking for ways to solve pressing problems and traditional software limits collaboration, scalability, and productivity.

Available by the beginning of 2023, FactoryTalk Design Hub includes five core solutions:

  • FactoryTalk Design Studio – for better team collaboration tools.
  • FactoryTalk Optix Software – a cloud-enabled HMI product for users to design, test and deploy applications directly from a web browser.
  • FactoryTalk Twin Studio – an end-to-end automation solution to design, program, simulate, emulate, and virtually commission in one cloud environment. FactoryTalk Vault – a secure, cloud-native centralized storage for manufacturing design teams.
  • FactoryTalk Remote Access Solution – enabling secure connections to equipment so teams can respond faster and rapidly resolve production issues from anywhere.
     

“The digital transformation of automation design capabilities requires both the cloud to maximize control system developers’ productivity, and it also requires that all software tools are connected by a digital thread to maximize collaboration, scalability, and productivity,” said Craig Resnick, vice president, ARC Advisory Group.

“Rockwell Automation’s FactoryTalk Design Hub enables seamless digital thread connectivity between its design, visualization, digital twin, storage, and remote access software tools that provide control system developers with immediate on-demand access to all automation designs as needed, regardless of their location, helping these companies to accelerate their initiatives ranging from digital transformation to IT/OT convergence.”
