Siemens Merge Tool

Published on

If you’re using Siemens TIA Portal with Version Control, via Copia and/or the Version Control Interface, you may have run into a merge conflict; with multiple engineers working on the same parts of the same project at the same time, you may run into a situation where two engineers have made changes to a project that directly conflict with one another.

Comparing the same network from two branches; in one branch, an engineer added a timer, in the other, a digital input.

Copia provides a powerful merge tool for Step7 projects from TIA Portal v15.1-v17 to assist with this, letting you pick which version belongs in the final product for each individual conflict.

The merge tool lets you resolve conflicted items individually, rendering both possible versions with changes highlighted.
