This session will demonstrate advanced computer controls and operations that can be developed for any sophisticated automated system. This includes showing recipe control, system/carrier status, alarm options & tracking, optimal part loading/mask instructions, and reporting, as well as discussing preventive maintenance, ERP/robotic integrations, and mobile options. Examples will be shown from screenshots taken from an existing automated finishing control system and other types of systems developed for other industries.

- Why we don't see smart SCADA more often in finishing
- What a smart finishing system SCADA looks like
- How a SCADA data system can improve your finishing operation
