COMOS Manufacturer Device Content
Manufacturer Device Content Database provides library of electrical manufacturing devices. With the device database, we want to make data models in COMOS available to our customers for real devices.  These models are based on SIEMENS devices and can be used in the electrotechnical planning process. The value of these devices is based on the associated COMOS concepts that are required for these devices, as well as the Siemens-specific design of the actual manufacturer device with the order number.  Customer projects save time and money as a result because these devices do not have to be conceptually and data-technically created at the start of a project. In the case of third-party manufacturers, the Siemens devices can be used as templates so that existing device concepts can also be used for other manufacturers.

o   Commissioning – Loop check  
o   Commissioning of field devices

o   Plant runners/Tours/Inspection 
o   Access to any kind of information 
o   Work orders 
o   Electronic As-Is-Documentation on the fly 
o   Prior use - devices for safety instruments systems 
o   Operation – Safety checks  

Changed behavior
