As global industry accelerates its digital transformation plans and seeks reliable and flexible SCADA solutions, many companies are turning to tightly integrated solution stacks to solve increasingly interconnected operational challenges.
As HMI/SCADA software continues to evolve, so has AVEVA™ Plant SCADA. It will be easier than ever for you to explore solutions that offer collaboration, skills management, deep analysis and artificial intelligence. Industrial operations must reinvent the traditional HMI/SCADA to support the future potential of operations control.
AVEVA Plant SCADA unlocks the full potential of integrated operations control
AVEVA is already exploring ways to bring the familiarity of traditional HMI/SCADA software to a more integrated style of operations centered on common information platforms and unified operations. AVEVA Plant SCADA is an example of how legacy SCADA software can be upgraded to play a powerful role in unified operations while retaining the features customers have relied on for decades.
AVEVA Plant SCADA began its development lifecycle as part of Citect and quickly dominated the SCADA market in the Asia-Pacific region. When Citect joined Schneider Electric and then AVEVA, Citect SCADA became part of the AVEVA portfolio.
Now the same team that brought you Citect SCADA brings you AVEVA Plant SCADA. They kept the features that customers rely on, such as image libraries and legacy graphics editors, but they gave Plant SCADA common tools shared across AVEVA’s rich portfolio, such as industrial graphics and a powerful HTML5-based read/write web client. .
Complete operations with AVEVA
AVEVA has not only enhanced this reliable SCADA software, it has fully integrated it into AVEVA’s operational capabilities. Operations control is an information and team framework that allows organizations to break down operational silos and show a unified view of operations that managers and operators can use to make better decisions and improve processes.
Plant SCADA plays an important role in controlling operations, and organizations using Plant SCADA can already take advantage of other powerful AVEVA solutions designed to unify systems and teams. For example, Plant SCADA supports industrial graphics, allowing users to import and export rich graphics libraries to other systems.
AVEVA Connect is another important component of the AVEVA Operations Control portfolio. In AVEVA connect, Plant SCADA users can centralize their data with AVEVA Data Hub or use AVEVA Insight to understand the health and performance of their assets.
AVEVA Plant SCADA is also part of AVEVA Flex, a subscription credit system that allows customers to use the entire AVEVA operations portfolio with much lower upfront costs. Interested in using FLEX to augment Plant SCADA with AVEVA Edge Edge Management solutions? Now you can! Want to transfer SCADA data from the plant directly into a unified operations center? AVEVA Flex lets you start experimenting with more complex system architectures and take advantage of powerful automation tools.
AVEVA Select dispensers offer a personal touch
As an AVEVA Select distributor, Schneider Electric offers the entire AVEVA portfolio. This allows them to provide a personal point of contact for companies executing their digital transformation plans as they explore new ways to structure their teams and break down information silos for a more unified operations experience.
Schneider Electric’s partnership with AVEVA provides a comprehensive set of solutions that help organizations optimize operations and asset performance, and more easily adopt technologies such as artificial intelligence, industrial IoT, big data, cloud and hybrid cloud capabilities.
Upgrade to AVEVA Plant SCADA
AVEVA and Schneider Electric always recommend using the most recent versions of software to mitigate security risks and implement the latest features and capabilities. If you are currently using an older edition of Citect SCADA, upgrading to AVEVA Plant SCADA will give you the future-proof technology you need to stay competitive.
