What do you like best?
This software offers a complete set of tools that allows you design, develop, and test a lot of different type of industrial automation applications. User have the possibility to also to emulate processors and modules to test the development before it runs in the real device. The tools included let you configure the Rockwell Automation network very easly and with a lot of features for operational diagnostic.
What do you dislike?
I have work with this set of tools a long time ago and it is difficult to find cons of the software, but one feature that Rockwell Automation could improve a little bit more is the third party devices integration, sometimes takes a lot of time and effort to develop an application that includes devices of different brands of RA.
Another issue that RA could improve is in the technical support obtained by phone.
Recommendations to others considering the product
In my opinion, Rockwell Automaton have the best industrial automation solution with Studio 5000 and the current hardware platforms.
