SCADA (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition)

SCADA systems are used to monitor and control industrial processes. They provide real-time data that can be used to improve efficiency and prevent problems. SCADA systems provide operators with visibility into all aspects of operations, allowing them to make informed decisions about process improvements and preventive maintenance.

Have you ever considered the value of 10 lost production hours?

  • Indirect wages
  • Replanning of production
  • Work overtime
  • Bad customer experience

Production down time will never come back – it is lost forever. Therefore, it is always crucial to find the reason behind your production stops - fast. Our SCADA system, S2, can help you with exactly that.

What is SCADA? 

At Frontmatec, we often see that production and distribution companies in the food industry experience production stoppages and lose valuable time finding out what and where it has gone wrong. Time not available again. For this reason, we at Frontmatec have developed a special SCADA system called S2, which just helps you with an overview of what, why and where - so you can find the right solution to the problem. 

SCADA stands for Supervisory control and data acquisition and designates a software system as well as hardware elements that allow the food industry the following:



  • Monitor, collect and process data in real time 
  • Record events and save as log file
  • Control industrial processes either locally or from remote locations 
  • Interact directly with devices such as sensors, motors, pumps, valves, etc. through HMI software. 

SCADA (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition) systems are automated systems that help organizations keep track of their equipment and processes. By using SCADA systems, your company can avoid downtime and save money on repairs.


Frontmatecs SCADA system 

Our SCADA solution S2 is an integrated modular software specially developed for the supply and food industry. This system provides preventive maintenance throughout production, while the software concept focuses on future requirements for SCADA through both database and network facilities. Therefore, our SCADA solution is also based on an open platform that ensures the most optimal conditions for integration of all public substations across both business and communication forms. 

In addition to our own SCADA system, we also offer SCADA solutions from other manufacturers such as Novotek, Rockwell and Siemens. That way, we can offer you exactly the solution that best suits your business and its specific needs.

SCADA solutions for the food industry 

Have you ever considered the significance of many lost production hours? How much can this loss affect? Downtime often means that production has to be rescheduled, which typically also leads to overtime. Eventually, a downtime in production can lead to an extended production time in addition to a lot of hours that you will not get back. 

A SCADA system is crucial for food companies, as these systems through preventive maintenance can help maintain production efficiency, process collected data to optimize and find smarter solutions, and report on system problems. All of which can help to optimize and reduce any downtime in production. Thanks to SCADA systems, food companies can improve their bottom line and keep their operations running smoothly. 


Preventive maintenance

Preventive maintenance refers to a proactive maintenance strategy, where all equipment in your production is maintained at regular intervals to minimize the risk of operational failure, which can ultimately lead to unintentional downtime. Here, SCADA can be an effective tool for identifying the areas where it is necessary to intervene with ongoing maintenance of machines and equipment in production.

A preventive maintenance solution like SCADA can help you keep your equipment running smoothly and avoid potential downtime. By scheduling regular PM visits, you can catch small problems before they become big ones. SCADA can also provide you with comprehensive reports on the condition of your equipment, so you can make informed decisions about when to replace or upgrade it.

How can SCADA create improvements in the food industry?

SCADA uses real-time data from production units to monitor and control equipment so that production efficiency, visibility and profit can be optimized and improved. There are three parameters where a SCADA solution from Frontmatec can create improvements in the food industry. 

  • Packaging: Among other things, a SCADA solution ensures improved integration in connection with packaging in addition to better alarm capabilities, predictive and preventive maintenance as well as increased traceability. 

  • Maintaining quality standards: It is important that any food industry can maintain the standards set for quality within the industry. SCADA can ensure this through traceability, as this allows the company to follow a given product throughout the production and thereby quickly detect if something does not live up to the requirements. 

  • Overview of and reporting of process: SCADA provides the full overview of production and makes reports that the company can use to identify, analyze and optimize various processes to ensure improved production. 


Use SCADA in connection with packaging

SCADA data shows that a particular packaging process is taking longer than usual, this could be an indication that there is an issue with the equipment or perhaps the process itself. By identifying these issues early, they can be fixed before they cause major problems further down the line.


Use SCADA to maintain quality standards 

SCADA systems can also be used to monitor food safety. By tracking data such as temperature and humidity levels, SCADA systems can help to ensure that food is being stored and transported under conditions that will prevent spoilage or contamination.

Using SCADA to maintain quality standards is an effective way to ensure that your product or service meets the highest possible standards. By automating quality control processes, you can eliminate human error and improve efficiency. SCADA systems can also provide real-time data that can be used to make informed decisions about quality control.


Use SCADA to get an overview of and report on processes 

SCADA systems are used in a variety of industries to get an overview of and report on processes. SCADA provides the full overview of production and makes reports that the company can use to identify, analyze, and optimize various processes to ensure improved production. This is a benefit because it allows businesses to improve their efficiency and bottom line.


Use SCADA to reduce costs 

In addition to improving efficiency and safety, SCADA systems can also help to reduce costs. By automating tasks and processes, SCADA systems can help to free up employees for other tasks. In some cases, SCADA systems can even be used to replace employees entirely. This can lead to significant cost savings, particularly in labour-intensive industries such as food production.

Overall, SCADA systems can have a huge impact on the food industry. By tracking data and identifying areas for improvement, SCADA systems can help to improve efficiency and safety while also reducing costs. Additionally, SCADA systems can be customized to fit the specific needs of any business, making them an extremely versatile tool. If you're looking for a way to get a better understanding of your company's processes, implementing a SCADA system is a great solution.
