Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) technology has evolved over the past 30 years as a method of monitoring and controlling large processes. Stuart Boyer has revised his well-received self-study guide, bringing it up to date on recent developments of SCADA technology, while introducing students to SCADA basics.

Boyer's guide offers overviews of SCADA's component technologies, as well as details necessary to understand the big picture. SCADA processes cover areas that may be measured in the thousands of square miles, and have dimensions that may be hundreds, occasionally thousands, of miles long. Now a mature technology, SCADA includes, but is not limited to, software packages that can be incorporated in a larger system. After completing its 14 self-study units, readers should be conversant with SCADA nomenclature and architecture, understand the basic technology of the system's building blocks, understand its limitations, understand how it can benefit particular operations, and have a basis for selecting appropriate SCADA technologies for their operational requirements.
