What is SCADA?
Supervisory control and data acquisition
Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition
A Foundation for Operational Excellence
SCADA is not a specific technology, but a type of application. Any application that gets operating data about a system in order to control and optimise that system is a SCADA application. That application may be a petrochemical distillation process, a water filtration system, a pipeline compressor, or just about anything else.
SCADA automation is simply the means to an end, and not the end itself. All businesses converge on the need for maximising return on assets through operational excellence. Staying competitive means continually finding new ways to operate faster and leaner. The pressure is always on to increase productivity, efficiency, agility, quality, and profitability, all while minimising costs.
SCADA Automation Must Protect Engineering Investments
One of the fundamental principles of any SCADA product is to add new capabilities to an existing system in manageable bites. Engineering effort has traditionally been a big part of any company’s investment in industrial software.
AVEVA offers a winning strategy for meeting complex and evolving automation requirements and system expansion while protecting initial engineering investments.
