The ATS-DDE-3964(R) Server for Siemens is an AdvanceDDE Server that provides seamless, high speed connectivity between DDE-aware applications and Siemens PLC systems. The ATS-DDE-3964(R) Server communicates with PLC's via a Serial port. The server can support one PLC on each port. As an AdvanceDDE Server, this ATS-DDE-3964(R) Server is compatibile with all of RSI’s View and VBX products including RSView, the WINtelligent Series (View, Trend, and Quality) and the new RSDATA Visual Basic extension.

You can try as a start off point But as a rule of thumb, I prefer using SIEMENS HMI with a SIEMENS PLC. Likewise, I would prefer RSView over SIEMENS, if my PLC was AB. If your project is still in sales stage, i suggest you look up SIEMENS WinCC as the HMI. On the other hand, if it is a multi-vendor PLC installation and single HMI, then maybe you can have a look at the other leading brands like Wonderware Intouch and/or Intellution iFix.
