Here is a description of a project I'm going to start working on. An
oil & gas pipeline has an antiquated SCADA system (estd: 1992). The
SCADA software needs to be upgraded. It the SCADA software
(distributed across serveral computers) communicates via a ModBus
network with several PLCs, a DCS and several flow computers. Of
course, field RTUs and a complex telemetry network is present.
This is my first project on such a big scale. I know how to upgrade
the SCADA software. Does anyone have any idea of how I am supposed to
execute a step by step procedure for testing the new software in its
complete capacity, without messing up big time and having a multi
million dollar pipeline wind up in my neck?
