SCADA, HMI, Historian, Alarming, Reporting and Workflow

Optimation's engineers are skilled in the configuration of Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) and Human Machine Interface (HMI) Systems. Our engineers also have extensive experience in historian, alarming, reporting and workflow application configurations. 

Over the past two decades we have completed hundreds of implementations, from very simple to extremely complex architectures. All the while, we have kept up to date with the latest available technology, in order to ensure our clients are using the best methods for their industrial and manufacturing requirements. Our engineers can design and implement a system that is the best fit for you by using server virtualization and thin clients where needed to maximize your investment in hardware and minimize the maintenance and administrative costs.


Alarming Application Benefits

  • Reduce need for 24 hour onsite staffing
  • Local and plant wide broadcasting
  • Notification for isolated/offsite workers

Reporting Application Benefits

  • Easily and quickly consolidate data into concise reports
  • Easily and securely authorize any authorized personnel access to reports

Workflow Application Benefits

  • Historical process knowledge
  • Reduction in operational costs
  • Improved collaboration and accountability
  • Increased consistency

Historian Application Benefits

  • Easily identify causes of process variability
  • Easily analyze complex process data thereby approving processes
  • Reduce identified process variability
  • Easily prepare reports from data collected thereby decreasing overhead costs
