Integrated Project Control System/
Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition Design

Client MassDOT    Location Massachusetts    Duration 2014 - 2015   

KCUS provided technical support to MassDOT on the design of an upgraded Integrated Project Control System (IPCS)/Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) that will be tightly integrated with the Advanced Traffic Management System (ATMS)/Advanced Traveler Information System (ATIS) operational platform at the Highway Operations Center (HOC). The IPCS system will provide tunnel management and SCADA functionality in relation to MassDOT’s roadway tunnel network and facilities.
The software solution will also implement unified tunnel control workflows, improve management of tunnel life safety systems, and improve monitoring of environmental emissions for certain surface roadways and tunnels located within MassDOT Highway District 6. KCUS followed the Federal Highway Administration’s (FHWA) Systems Engineering Process to ensure that the implemented system will meet its operational needs, institutional requirements, and vision for future expansion and integration. KCUS assisted MassDOT in the development of a Concept of Operations, System Requirements Specification, and High-Level Design.
