SCADA ( supervisory control and data acquisition ) is a type of industrial control system (ICS). Industrial control systems are computer controlled systems that monitor and control industrial processes that exist in the physical world. SCADA systems historically distinguish themselves from other ICS systems by being large scale processes that can include multiple sites, and large distances. [ 1 ] These processes include industrial, infrastructure, and facility-based processes, as described below: Industrial processes include those of manufacturing, production, power generation , fabrication , and refining, and may run in continuous, batch, repetitive, or discrete modes.
