Operations Management in Water and Wastewater Treatment Plants


Article Preview

This paper explains the necessity of implementing Operations Management Software (OMS) in SCADA systems, by highlighting the benefits of OMS in water and wastewater plants. The modern approach for implementing this kind of system in a Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) is also presented, with examples of existing systems.
