I would like to find out if there are any statistics available on the market share of Labview DSC in the SCADA software market.
What are the strengths and weakness of Labview DSC in comparison with other SCADA software available in the market such as
0 Kudos WonderWare and WinCC? In addition, where can I locate more information on the Process Visualisation Capabilities of Labview
DSC? I am greatly impressed with the process visualisation of the manufacturing VI but was unable to locate any info on it.

I have worked with a few HMI/SCADA packages and the main plus point of DSC I see in comparison to those is its extensibility.
As you know, DSC is built on top of LabVIEW -- a graphical programming language. Because of its intuitive, data-flow, graphical
nature, almost anyone can "code" with LabVIEW.

DSC has all the basic features of a standard HMI/SCADA package built-in: Tag-based architecture, Historical logging, Alarms and
Events, Security, etc.

If there's anything that one needs in addition to the above, they can quickly whip it up because of it being a programming
environment as well. That to me is the biggest strength of DSC.

Thanks,

Khalid

Khalid,

0 Kudos Can you please describe the main downfalls of DSC compared to the likes of Wonderware and DeltaV interfaces....Are there
anything the larger HMI/SCADA packages offer that NI doesn't? How does Lookout fit into the picture?

Thanks in advance
