My SCADA is your SCADA

SCADA or Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition, the primary software used in heavy industries of Oil and Gas, Mining, Shipbuilding, and Steel to name but a few. What SCADA does is monitor the industrial processes used in these heavy industries placing a heavy reliance on SCADA when it comes to quality control.

These levels of quality control will be presented and elaborated further, particularly tried and tested methods which may not be as widely used when it comes to Software processes. From this session, you could find yourself walking away with a few new tricks on how these automated monitoring checks can help mitigate some of the risks you experience in your role as well as work environment.
