Supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) is a computer-based industrial control system that integrates hardware and software elements to manage industrial processes. It provides companies with local or remote control over equipment and processes while allowing real-time data to be collected, processed, and conveniently accessed. When designed and implemented properly, SCADA systems boost productivity and improve decision-making capabilities through accurate data processing and rapid communication of system issues.

Turner Integrated Systems specializes in the development of turnkey SCADA systems and other industrial control solutions aimed at helping industrial organizations streamline their day-to-day operations. Here, we provide an overview of SCADA technology and systems, including life-cycle phases, system design considerations, and the benefits of partnering with an experienced SCADA systems manufacturer.

Why Partner with a Systems Manufacturer?

Using in-depth knowledge of engineering and information technology, control systems manufacturers design and construct sophisticated control solutions that can be integrated into manufacturing operations and other industrial processes. Partnering with a qualified SCADA systems manufacturer with relevant industry experience provides companies with several benefits, including:

Knowledge of SCADA Implementation

Knowledge of SCADA Implementation

A control systems manufacturer has the expertise to handle all stages of SCADA implementation, from system configuration to onsite integration and testing. The implementation process typically involves the following steps:
  • Configuration. The systems manufacturer carefully plans the SCADA architecture based on your existing infrastructure and future goals. Equipment required for the system is configured in-house, and compatibility among the various SCADA components is tested.
  • Integration. Once fully configured, the SCADA control system undergoes the commissioning process for validation. Once all data and functionalities are validated, the SCADA system is installed on-site for complete integration into your operation.
  • On-site testing. After installation and integration are complete, the system and its parts are tested to make sure they perform as intended.
Systems Maintenance

Systems Maintenance

To maintain a high level of performance, SCADA systems require routine and thorough maintenance and security checks. A systems manufacturer who understands the intricacies of your system can help you quickly identify operational issues and security vulnerabilities before they lead to equipment failures and downtime.
Expert Recommendations

Expert Recommendations

Using a broad range of IT and engineering experience, a control systems manufacturer can evaluate your existing infrastructure and make valuable recommendations on how to configure your SCADA system for seamless integration and optimal functionality. They can also work with you to develop a flexible and scalable system capable of expanding to meet your future needs.
Upgrade Advice and Assistance

Upgrade Advice and Assistance

Routine upgrades are critical for maintaining the safety and functionality of your SCADA system and enhancing your ROI. A control systems manufacturer can perform regular comprehensive reviews of your system to determine when and how upgrades should be implemented for maximum benefit.
