The term hypervision can in fact be interpreted differently depending on the applications. Sometimes it may just be a question of semantics, but not always! Whether it be a matter of managing geographically dispersed sites, a principle that is closer to Geo-SCADA, or more to do with convergence of information from different local SCADA applications, in both cases the key concept is the centralization of different information flows from so-called “function-specific” applications into a single application. The granularity of the information offered to operators can be freely adjusted. For example, a “hypervisor” can create a macroscopic vision of industrial or technical plants with a significant degree of abstraction. Other applications may simply offer views that capture all the details of lower-level SCADA processes. The choice is yours!
