Will SCADA Systems Survive? The Future of Distributed Management Systems

  1. 1. Will SCADA Systems Survive? Or the Future of Distributed Management Systems
  2. 2. IIoT Platforms Vs. SCADA/HMI/MES Contemporary SCADA and IIoT platforms have a lot of common features: • Same data collection protocols • Identical archive storage methods, while binary storage has gone to the past • HMIs building is possible in both • Similar ways of time-series data processing Obviously, IIoT platforms offer all 4th generation SCADA features (operation in the cloud, web visualization, etc.) - 2 -
  3. 3. IIoT Platform Advantages As Compared to SCADA • Solving complex cross-domain tasks (IT infrastructure management, fleet monitoring, service modeling, etc.) • Collecting and processing not only tags but also structured data (incident tables, service catalogs, arbitrary object hierarchies and connections between them) • Extensive support for multiple IT (Telnet/SSH, FTP), IoT (MQTT, CoAP), and universal protocols (SOAP, CORBA) • Complex data visualization (maps, statistical diagrams, data-entry forms, OLAP cubes) • Operation in publisher/subscriber mode, direct communication between things - 3 -
  4. 4. More Than SCADA IoT platforms cover plenty of automation system levels: • Almost every IIoT platform operates at SCADA/HMI level. • Most platforms are able to solve MES and OEE tasks. • Multiple platforms “feel all right” at ERP/EAM levels. • In some cases, platform components enable SoftPLC level, i.e. logic of controllers and IEC 61131-3 language (FBD, LD, SFC, ST) runtime environment. • There is a trend towards substituting DSC and niche systems (e.g. AMR). - 4 -
  5. 5. IoT Platform Operation at PLC Level - 5 - In Tibbo Project System hardware platform, AggreGate IoT Platform server acts as a runtime environment providing data collection, storage, analysis, and visualization at the controller level, as well as IEC 61131-3 (ST, LD, FBS, SFC) algorithms execution in hard real time. The server “feels all right” on Raspberry Pi, BeagleBone Black, other single- board and industrial PCs, PLCs with Linux/Windows.
  6. 6. New Business Models • Selling a service, not software, becomes commonplace. • Paying not for time period/event count, but for the service metrics (running hours, time saved on periodic maintenance, etc.) will gain popularity. • For setting up a service, a network (“tube”) and a server (“cloud”) are needed. It automatically makes telecoms the first potential IoT service providers. • As in traditional IT, the value of data ownership in IoT will increase compared to its simple transmission and visualization. • Investment in device development is decreasing, while investment in platform development is increasing fast. - 6 -
  7. 7. Software of the Future Will Be Unified • IoT platforms will take positions currently belonging to various lower level software. • The process will remind globalization of ERP systems that should be able to do everything. • It relates not only to a production sector, but to any other company dealing with physical assets (agroholdings, retail, energy, oil and gas, transport, and telecoms). • Even in SCADA world, software will be offered as a service. • Existing niche monitoring and management systems will either transform into global solutions or exit the market. - 7 -
