SCADA ( S upervisory C ontrol A nd D ata A cquisition ) . SCADA is not a full control system, but rather focuses on the supervisory level. As such, it is a purely software package that is positioned on top of hardware to which it is interfaced, in general via Programmable Logic Controllers (PLCs), or other commercial hardware modules.SCADA systems are typically used to perform data collection and control at the supervisory level.

The supervisory control system is a system that is placed on top of areal-time control system to control a process that is external to the SCADA system ( i.e. a computer, by itself, is not a SCADA system even though it controls its own power consumption and cooling). This implies that the system is not critical to control the process in real-time, as there is a separate or integrated real-time automated control system that can respond quickly enough to compensate for process changes within the time-constants of the process . The process can be industrial, infrastructure or facility based as described below:

  • Industrial processes include : Manufacturing, production, power generation, fabrication, refining - continuous, batch, repetitive or discrete. SCADA also used in some experimental facilities such as nuclear fusion. More recently they were also applied for the controls of smaller size particle detectors.
  • Infrastructure processes may be public or private and include: water treatment and distribution, wastewater collection and wastewater treatment , oil & gas pipelines, electrical power transmission and distribution and large communication systems.
  • Facility processes in private or public facilities including: buildings, airports, ships or space stations in order to monitor and control:HVAC, access control, energy consumption management
