We have developed different SCADA tools, using different operating and techniques. The last of the packages developed run under Windows environments, using real-time scheduling algorithms adapted to time-sharing environments.

- The project history started in 1993, when we developed a SCADA tool with academic purposes. We used the Minix operating system as developing plattform. The tool was intended to build industrial processes' supervisory systems. An example supervisor was built to show the usefulness of the tool. The results were presented in the following publication:
"SSDT: a tool to develop supervisory systems". G. Wainer. (in Spanish). Proceedings of the I Jornadas Chilenas de Computacion, La Serena, Chile. 1994.
- The SSDT tool was then modified to run under the RT-Minix operating system.
The results can be read in the following report "Modifying a supervisory systems toolkit".(in Spanish). M.F.
Caropreso, S. Pascual, P. Tirelli, A. Zuzek. Director: G. Wainer.
The IGNATIUS tool was based in the previous efforts, and it is intended to be used to build Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) systems. It was built using the OS/2 Operating system, and its main goal is to allow the development of low cost supervisory solutions. Development and test times are highly reduced, and maintainability is improved.

The main features of the tool were
presented at IASTED Robotics and Manufacturing 1997: "IGNATIUS: a tool to
develop SCADA systems". S. Benítez, J. Seoane; G.Wainer, R. Bevilacqua.
The development of applications using the
tool were presented in IEEE Conference on Systems, Man and Cybernetics:
"Experiences with a tool to develop supervisory systems". S. Benítez, J. Seoane;
G.Wainer, R. Bevilacqua.
