Development Studio Explained
Various engineers, developing supervisory SCADA and HMI applications over many years, are likely to differ in their design practices. Such lack of standardisation ultimately leads to increased redesign and maintenance costs. Development Studio is an engineering environment created for the development, maintenance and management of applications. It offers a communal development environment that helps you drive standards and best practices across your business.
Minimise HMI Engineering Cost and Effort
Development Studio offers an intuitive graphic editor that makes possible the creation of a full range of real-time process graphics and visualisations – from incredibly vivid graphics, to best-practice situational awareness symbols. Its template-based approach to HMI engineering facilitates the reuse of data across multiple applications while also encouraging the adoption of company standards. Additionally, Development Studio supports collaboration, enabling engineers, operators and IT teams to work together in creating more effective HMIs in less time.
Drive Business-Wide Standardisation
Development Studio utilises a single, unified Plant Model that logically represents your processes, industrial systems and physical equipment, so making the design and maintenance of your HMI SCADA systems more efficient and consistent. This feature drives company-wide standards throughout your plant – or from one site to another.
Improve System Maintainability
Development Studio extends system lifecycle and maintainability. It does so through centralised application management and deployment in networked environments. Any modification or change applied to an application can be automatically propagated throughout the enterprise, saving engineering time, increasing consistency and minimising errors – while offering maximum flexibility.
Supply Richer Customised Application Content
Through its extensibility, Development Studio empowers customers to build richer applications with limitless customisation. This can be achieved by leveraging new data sources and the integration of disparate silos of information.
Development Studio also includes access to Integration Studio. This infrastructure-as-a-service development environment enables greater collaboration, rapid project creation, project archival, scalability on-demand as well as the capacity to manage multiple IS³ development projects at the same time.
