Aiming at the problems of insufficient cultivation of learning ability of college students and weak transformation of knowledge into engineering ability, this paper proposes a PLC course teaching method based on OBE teaching concept with the goal of cultivating innovative talents with engineering simulation. This method adheres to the three concepts of student-centered, results-oriented and continuous improvement, and focuses on the teaching objectives of knowledge, ability and quality in the learning process of students, so as to improve the training quality of contemporary college students. Use this method to guide students to learn goal-oriented learning in the process of learning inquiry, so as to know exactly what to learn and how to learn. This paper studies the PLC course teaching method by combining concrete engineering examples and OBE teaching concept, showing that the new teaching method can not only arouse students' enthusiasm in learning theory and practice, but also achieve the seamless connection between students' classroom learning and practical engineering analysis, and further improve the teaching quality.
