Central location used to operate a set of assets.
- NOTE: Infrastructure industries typically use one or more control centers to supervise or coordinate their operations. If there are multiple control centers (for example, a backup center at a separate site), they are typically connected together via a wide area network. The control center contains the SCADA host computers and associated operator display devices plus ancillary information systems such as a historian.
- NOTE: In some industries the term “control room” may be more commonly used.
