There are several fundamental differences between SCADA and supervisory HMI (human machine interface) products that are based on component-object application development and traditional tag-based development. This paper differentiates the two methodologies and illustrates how developing SCADA and supervisory HMI products with component objects can result in an 80% cost reduction over developing them using a traditional tag-based approach. Object based application development is of particular interest for the development of SCADA applications in water and wastewater operations, given the nature of these systems.
