SCADA Master Planning

— filed under: ,

SCADA Planning FanThe life span of a SCADA/Control system is relatively short. System upgrades introduce greater functionality while aging systems face concerns with compatibility, continuing support and availability of replacement parts.

While some utilities update systems, others are applying control systems to optimize processes; capture operational data for planning and decision making; and integrate with business systems for enterprise-wide improvement.
