About the Session

In Summer 2020, the ISA112 SCADA Systems Standards committee release the first draft of its new ISA112 SCADA Systems Management Lifecycle.  The Lifecycle is comprised of 8 core phases, each broken down into work processes, which provides an organized method and framework for the long term management of SCADA systems.  This includes maintaining system standards, a standardized way to conduct automation projects and guidelines for the long term maintenance and operation of SCADA systems.

In this session, Mr. Nasby who is co-chair of the ISA112 SCADA systems standards committee, along with several other ISA112 committee members will talk about the benefits of the ISA112 lifecycle, and the motivations behind its development.

The ISA112 SCADA Systems lifecycle is already being used at several water/wastewater utilities in Ontario Canada, where it has helped with the standardization of work processes used for managing SCADA system. The ISA112 lifecycle has also simplified their procedures and workflows for managing SCADA projects.  The ISA112 committee currently has over 200 members from around the world, and has been active since 2016. The committee is working towards releasing the first part of the written ISA112 standards documents in 2023. This interview and open participant discussion provide an overview of the newly released ISA lifecycle diagram that is now available at www.isa.org/isa112 and sneak preview of the written ISA112 standards that are soon to follow.
