SCADA

SCADA (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition) encompasses any application that gets operating data about a system to control and optimize it.

SCADA automation allows businesses to monitor their equipment, reduce inefficiency and waste, communicate process outcomes throughout the organization, and monitor performance across disparate systems. Remaining competitive means continually finding new ways to operate faster and leaner. The pressure is always on to increase productivity, efficiency, agility, quality, and profitability while minimizing costs.

Critical Questions to Ask When Selecting SCADA Software

When deciding to automate or improve existing automation, start by considering how your requirements will evolve over the next 15 years (the typical lifecycle of a SCADA system). Are you able to anticipate your expected needs during that period of evolving automation maturity?

It is nearly impossible to predict changing automation requirements over such a period, especially as the connectivity capabilities of plant equipment change. That’s why it’s important to understand not only what available technology can do for you today, what technology you may need in the future. Ask yourself these questions:

  • What are the short and long-term corporate objectives? Is the proposed automation consistent with these objectives?
  • What under-the-hood functionality will really help the business over the long haul?
  • How will the technology eliminate or reduce current inefficiencies and costs?

Here's a quick overview of a few of the features that make InduSoft Web Studio such an excellent solution for SCADA applications of any size.
